Athletics | Sonny Gray excels against AL West

Tue, 19 May 2015 10:11:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray is 4-0 with a 1.05 ERA in six starts against American League West opponents this year, and he's 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in three career starts against the Houston Astros, with all of those starts coming in Oakland. Gray leads all AL starters with a 1.61 ERA entering the game Tuesday, May 19, and he hasn't allowed more than one earned run in six of his eight starts this year. He's also struck out at least nine batters in each of his last three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Paying up for Gray ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) tonight at FantasyScore could be risky, with the A's struggling and on the road against the AL's best team. However, Houston ranks second in all of baseball with 356 total strikeouts. Tread carefully with this one.

Atlethics | Sonny Gray a tough-luck loser

Wed, 13 May 2015 16:13:47 -0700

Oakland Ahletics SP Sonny Gray struck out nine batters and allowed just one earned run and three hits over seven innings during his loss to the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) was his usual dominant self, but the Oakland offense failed to help his cause. Gray's ERA is down to 1.61, and he has 53 punchouts over 56 innings pitched this season. Continue to view Gray as a high-end hurler in all formats.

Athletics | Sonny Gray has success against Seattle

Fri, 08 May 2015 09:07:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray is 4-1 with a 2.21 ERA in eight career starts against the Seattle Mariners, who he faces Friday, May 8. Mariners 2B Robinson Cano is 5-for-18 (.278) against him with a double and home run, but 3B Kyle Seager is hitting .227 (5-for-22), OF Dustin Ackley .200 (3-for-15), 1B Logan Morrison .188 (3-for-16) and OF Nelson Cruz just .111 (1-for-9). Gray allowed two runs (one earned) and six hits in a no-decision in 7 1/3 innings against Seattle April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) has been good at suppressing home runs this year, and the Mariners are struggling to both score runs and hit homers at their home digs of Safeco Field. That combination should be enough to make Gray a worthwhile buy at FantasyScore tonight.

Athletics | Sonny Gray has good history against Angels

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 10:00:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray is 2-1 with a 2.68 ERA in six outings (five starts) in his career against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He's also 5-1 with a 2.08 ERA in eight career April starts, and he is 13-5 with a 2.14 ERA in 24 career outings against the American League West.

Fantasy Tip: Gray ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) should be an acceptable start against the Angels tonight at FantasyScore after getting knocked around in his last outing. The Angels, as a team, only sport a .228 batting average so far in the season's first month.

Athletics | Sonny Gray flirts with history

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 23:00:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning Monday, April 6, against the Texas Rangers. He ended up allowing just one hit with one walk over eight scoreless innings while posting three strikeouts in the 98-pitch win.

Fantasy Tip: Gray was untouchable against a bad Texas offense, making FantasyScore owners smile. At $7,500 (or 15.0% of cap) he is a sharp play for his next scheduled start Saturday against J.A. Happ and the Mariners.

Athletics | Sonny Gray named opening day starter

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 12:30:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray has been named the opening day starter against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Gray posted solid numbers last season and will look to improve on them this season. He posted a 3.08 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP in 219 innings in 2014. Gray could be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 starting pitcher in drafts this season.

Athletics | Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir to be eased in

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 09:55:25 -0800

Oakland Athletics SPs Sonny Gray and Scott Kazmir will be held out of Cactus League games for the first week. Gray made a career-high 33 starts in 2014 and tossed 219 innings, while Kazmir made 32 starts and threw 190 innings, his most since 2007. It'll also allow the A's to get better looks at SPs Jesse Hahn and Kendall Graveman, among others.

Fantasy Tip: Gray's jump in innings is definitely a concern, but not enough of one to cloud the fact that he's an up-and-coming ace that could join the elite ranks of starting pitchers in another season. Kazmir was a feel-good story with the A's last year, but his K/9 dipped to 7.8, and you have to wonder how much he has left in the tank on the wrong side of 30. However, he can still be useful in the right matchups in daily games.

Athletics | Skipping Jason Hammel

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 15:07:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jason Hammel's next start will be skipped. The Athletics will go with SPs Sonny Gray, Jon Lester and Scott Kazmir this weekend against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: A short-term blow, especially in weekly leagues, but Hammel's value remains the same. He shouldn't be started in unfavorable matchups.
