A's P Sonny Gray continues great start to 2015 season
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray threw seven strong innings in Wednesday night’s 9-2 win over the Angels.

Gray’s next projected start is on April 28 against the Angels.

Athletics hit by illness, including Sonny Gray, Kendall Graveman
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Manager Bob Melvin said that the Athletics have been laid low by a 10-day cold bug that has been working its way through the clubhouse. Among the players that have already had it are Sonny Gray, Fernando Abad, Stephen Vogt and Ike Davis.
Kendall Graveman was fighting the illness when he made his first start, Melvin said. Graveman gave up seven earned runs in three and a third innings.
Sonny Gray gets no decision in Athletics' loss
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Athletics starter Sonny Gray pitched seven and a third innings in a no decision on Saturday.
Gray said he wasn't feeling well and knew warming up "that this one was going to be a grind," per Inside the A's.
Gray allowed two runs, one earned, on six hits, including a solo homer by Dustin Ackley. That home run ended Gray's scoreless innings streak, dating back to last September, at 20. He walked one and struck out four.
"Obviously I knew it was going to be one of those games," Gray said of the homer.
"Sonny really wasn’t feeling good," catcher Josh Phegley said. "He still looked pretty sharp."
Gray had 63 strikes in 96 pitches. His next start will be Friday, against the Royals and Jeremy Guthrie.
Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray tosses one-hitter in win Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray tossed a one-hit gem in Monday's opener against the Rangers. Gray went eight strong innings with three strikeouts and one walk on 98 pitches.
Gray carried a no-hit bid into the eighth inning, but allowed a lead off single to Ryan Rua. He did not get any further as Gray induced a double play on the next at-bat.
Gray is next scheduled to take on the Mariners on April 11 in Oakland.
|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.
