Athletics SP Sonny Gray to start Tuesday
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3:26 pm ET) Athletics starter Sonny Gray, who has not pitched since June 25 while dealing with a nasty bout of salmonella poisoning, will return to the rotation Tuesday and make a start against the Yankees.
The announcement likely means that Gray would not pitch in the All-Star game, since his next start would be July 12, the last game before the break.
Gray is 9-3 with a 2.09 ERA so far this season. He has allowed just 81 hits in 107 2/3 innings pitched with 97 strikeouts.
A's looking at Tuesday for Sonny Gray's next start

|(7/3/15) Athletics manager Bob Melvin says he would like to have right-hander Sonny Gray make his next start on Tuesday. Gray has been battling a bout of salmonella poisining, and has not pitched since June 25.
Having Gray pitch Tuesday would also line him up to pitch on July 12, the last game before the All-Star break. This would keep Gray from pitching in the Mid-Summer Classic.
"You first have to look at the team and how we can get him pitching for us sooner rather than later," Melvin said, per the Bay Area News Group.
Athletics SP Sonny Gray likely no-go Sunday as well

|(7/3/15) A scary bout with salmonella will very likely sideline Athletics ace Sonny Gray from another start Sunday.
"It looks like that right now," Bob Melvon told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Gray only began eating solid foods again Thursday after a five-day illness. The salmonella attacked his colon, which Gray stated swelled to double its normal size.
The source of the salmonella remains undetermined. The clubhouse has been ruled out because none of his teammates became ill.
A's SP Sonny Gray out of hospital, status for next start is TBD

|(7/2/15) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray was released from the hospital Wednesday after he was admitted Monday evening due to a severe case of bacterial gastroenteritis, according to MLB.com.
Gray is expected to be back in the Oakland clubhouse Thursday. Although, manager Bob Melvin isn't sure yet if Gray will make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Mariners.
"He's getting much better, no fever," A's team physician Allan Pont said. "He's rounding into shape."
Chris Bassitt would start in Gray's absence again, if he can't start Sunday.
A's SP Sonny Gray dealing with bacterial illness
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) Athletics starter Sonny Gray was diagnosed with bacterial gastroenteritis, and is still in the hospital. However, the right-hander is said to be feeling better and could be released later on Thursday or Friday, according to the Bay Area News Group.
"It's been a bit of a roller coaster for him," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "Just when he started feeling good, then he wouldn't for a period of time. He's been there for a couple days."
It is still unknown if Gray will be able to make his next start on Sunday, as his expected return to the team is currently unknown.
|2014 summary: Sonny Gray proved to be less of a strikeout pitcher in his sophomore season than he was as a rookie, but he turned out to be nearly as effective. Averaging 7.5 strikeouts per nine innings, Gray relied on ground ball outs to quell the opposition, and with 21 double play balls and a .212 batting average allowed on grounders, he did just that. Gray was also a workhorse for the Athletics, making 33 starts and pitching 219 innings. He went 14-10 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.|
Playing time status: Especially with Jon Lester and Jeff Samardzija out of the rotation, the A's will rely even more on Gray to provide innings, and he should occupy a spot at or near the top of their rotation.
2015 outlook: Gray was a top 25 starter last season, but if owners draft him as such this year, they could end up disappointed. He was probably fortunate to have given up just five home runs on the road last season, and with Josh Donaldson and Jed Lowrie departed from the A's infield, Gray may not prevent as many ground ball base hits. Instead of reaching for Gray as a No. 2 starter, think of him as more of a middle-of-the-rotation type for the middle rounds in standard mixed leagues.
