Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over six innings in a win Tuesday, July 26, against the Texas Rangers. He allowed two more homers, and he has given up 17 on the season to match the career high he set last season.
Fantasy Tip: It's been a very disappointing season for the team's opening day starter, as he is just 5-9 with a 5.43 ERA despite the victory. Gray remains useful in AL-only fantasy play only at this point.

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed seven runs on nine hits in five innings Thursday, June 21, in a 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Fantasy Tip: Gray has eight losses in his last nine decisions, a far cry from the pitcher that dominated for Oakland in the past few years. As hard as it is to say, Gray does not have fantasy value until he can figure out just exactly what happened.

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray ended a 12-start winless drought, allowing three runs on six hits while walking four and striking out two over six innings in a win over the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, July 15.
Fantasy Tip: Gray has allowed three runs or less in four of his last five starts, but his strikeout numbers remain disappointing and he has been far from dominant. He should be owned in most leagues in case he returns to form, but in the meantime, pick and choose when you start him based on the matchups.

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray dropped to 3-8 on the season after losing his start Wednesday, July 6, against the Minnesota Twins. The right-hander churned out a fine effort, though, allowing only one run on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out five and walked four.
Fantasy Tip: Gray's eighth loss of the campaign comes right before the All-Star break, and it's already one more than he had all of last year, when he was 14-7 in 31 starts. Anyone who drafted the Oakland ace has been kind of stuck with him through his struggles, but at least it seems he's nearing the light at the end of the tunnel. After all, Gray has given up two runs or less in three of his past four assignments, so hopefully he's becoming more consistent like he was in his first three years.
