Athletics | Sonny Gray logs quality start

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 23:11:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray yielded two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits in six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, June 21. He issued one walk and fanned seven in a no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Gray was pretty good Tuesday night, scattering six singles and a double. He left with the score 2-2 so he didn't pick up the win. In four winless starts since returning from the DL, Gray has a 3.65 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP in 24 2/3 innings, during which he has struck out 19. Those are already pretty decent numbers, but remember that half of the 10 runs he has allowed came in one inning against the Texas Rangers. There are subtle signs that Gray is rounding into form. If he's available in your league, now would be the time to scoop him up and hope this upward trend continues.

Athletics | Sonny Gray struggles against Rangers

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 23:34:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray surrendered five runs on eight hits in six innings against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday, June 15. He walked one and struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: After pitching fairly well in his first two post-DL outings, Gray worked five scoreless innings before coming apart in the sixth when he surrendered a pair of home runs as part of a five-run frame. The A's held a 5-0 lead entering the inning, and they ended up losing, 7-5, so Gray is still hunting for his first win since April 22. Despite Gray's struggles, continue stashing him if you can.

Athletics | Sonny Gray tagged with loss Friday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 19:00:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (3-6) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Cincinnati Reds Friday, June 10, with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has dropped five consecutive decisions, although he pitched well enough to win Friday. He faced the minimum 15 batters through his first five innings and didn't give up a hit until allowing a one-out single by C Tucker Barnhart in the sixth. Gray's next start will come versus the Texas Rangers Wednesday, June 15, and he is worth considering for DFS contests despite the losing streak.

Athletics | Positive outing for Sonny Gray

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 18:04:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed one run on five hits while walking one and striking out five over five innings in a no-decision against the Houston Astros Sunday, June 5, and manager Bob Melvin said it was the best Gray has looked since his first start of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's performance was encouraging, but it remains to be seen if he is back on track for the long haul. You may want to pick and choose when you start him for his next few outings.

Athletics | Sonny Gray activated

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:18:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Sunday, June 5, in order to start against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Gray hasn't looked at all like the pitcher that finished third in the AL Cy Young voting last year with a 5.77 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 10 starts. It's possible his injury had affected some of his mechanics, though, so he should be able to turn things around with full health. The Astros lead the AL in strikeouts, but Gray will be a risky start in his first outing off the DL.

Athletics | Sonny Gray to get the call Sunday?

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 12:25:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) is tentatively expected to come off the disabled list Sunday, June 5, in time to face the Houston Astros. Gray was originally scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Stockton, but will instead fill the void left behind by SP Rich Hill (groin), whose turn the team plans to skip in order to give him more time to heal.

Fantasy Tip: This is far from an ideal return scenario for Gray, as the Astros have won nine of 11 entering Saturday's contest, doing so with a resurgent offense. Owners probably should play it safe with Gray and leave him on the bench for this outing and hope he shows well enough that he can be trusted next weekend on the road against the Cincinnati Reds.

Athletics | Sonny Gray to rehab Sunday

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 11:36:55 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) will make a rehab start for Class AA Stockton Sunday, June 5, according to manager Bob Melvin. Gray could return to face the Cincinnati Reds next week if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has been bad for his fantasy owners with a 6.19 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in nine starts (48 innings) this year. His recent injury could be to blame for some of his poor performances before landing on the DL. Gray isn't this bad, but it's unlikely he'll immediately revert to his great form a year ago when he's off the DL. In any event, Gray is a fine buy-low candidate.

Athletics | Sonny Gray feeling great

Tue, 31 May 2016 15:58:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) felt great after throwing 50 pitches in three simulated innings Tuesday, May 31, and he will move to a bullpen session Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has an ugly 6.19 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in nine starts (48 innings) this year. He's not this bad, and it's likely his injury played a part in some of his recent rough outings. He's a buy-low candidate in fantasy, just don't expect him to return to his high 2015 levels once he's back from the DL.

Athletics | Sonny Gray to continue rehab Tuesday

Sat, 28 May 2016 17:20:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) threw 35 pitches off the bullpen mound Saturday, May 28, and he will throw of the regular mound Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Gray is having a rough year, but continue to stash him and hope for better results when he returns from injury.

Athletics | Sonny Gray to throw bullpen session

Fri, 27 May 2016 16:50:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (neck, shoulder) is scheduled to throw 35-40 pitches during a bullpen session Saturday, May 28. He has played catch in each of the last two days.

Fantasy Tip: Gray was placed on the disabled list earlier in the week but appears to be making good progress in his recovery. He could make at least one rehab start but should return in the near future. Gray should be a starting candidate once he is activated from the disabled list.
