A's looking at Tuesday for Sonny Gray's next start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) 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


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2015) 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
(7/1/2015) 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.


Illness has Athletics ace Sonny Gray scratched for Tuesday start


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Athletics ace Sonny Gray has been scratched from his start Tuesday night against Colorado due to illness, per MLB.com.

Chris Bassitt will pitch instead.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray picked up his ninth win of the season on Thursday against the Rangers.

Gray tossed six innings, allowed nine hits and three earned runs on the day. He started his day off with three scoreless innings, but he gave up three runs over the next two.

Athletics' Sonny Gray gives up 5 earned runs in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray took a no-decision in Oakland's loss to the Angels on Friday. Gray pitched six innings and allowed six runs, five earned, on five hits. Gray walked three and struck out two.

“He’s been tough on us all year,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “He was throwing the ball well tonight. I thought we had much better at-bats tonight against him than we did in Southern California last week.”

Gray's next start is Thursday, against Texas.  


Sonny Gray moves to 8-3 with win for Athletics


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray earned a win over the Angels on Sunday, allowing one unearned run over 7 2/3 innings. 

"He had a little harder slider than we've seen, one that was going down, too -- usually his harder slider goes lateral," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "What we've seen this year, more than really in the past, is the ability to throw strikes whenever he wants to with all his pitches. As good as he is, he continues to get better."

Gray allowed five hits, didn't walk a batter and struck out nine. 

Gray improved to 8-3. His next start is Friday, against the Angels again. 


Athletics SP Sonny Gray allows eight hits in Tuesday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Gray's biggest mistake came in the sixth inning when Mitch Moreland hit a solo home run off him. He also struck out six and walked one during the outing. He received a loss for his effort and his ERA now stands at 1.74.

Over his last three starts, Gray (7-3) has given up a total of four runs over 22 innings of work. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday at the Angels.


Athletics' Sonny Gray twirls eight scoreless innings vs. Tigers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray earned a win on Wednesday, giving up just two hits and one walk in eight scoreless innings while striking out seven in his team's 6-1 victory over the Tigers.

Gray (7-2) has given up a total of two runs over his last three outings combined after Wednesday's gem, which featured a pair of strikeouts in the eighth inning to close out his night in strong fashion. He's given up no more than three runs in nine straight starts and a total of just 10 runs during that stretch.

"You feel like you get one run for that guy, whether it's the first or the eighth, you're going to get a 'W' no matter what," outfielder Josh Reddick said, per MLB.com. "He goes out there with the utmost confidence in himself, and I think it gives our lineup a little bit of a boost in knowing that if we can score one or two, it's going to be a shutout for him."

Gray owns a 1.65 ERA and 73:21 K:BB ratio in 82 innings. His next start is scheduled for Monday against the Rangers at home.

Athletics' Sonny Gray wins for first time in three weeks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray pitched five shutout innings to move to 5-2 on the season, beating Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Athletics starter Sonny Gray allows three runs in five IP for loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray (4-2) yielded three runs on seven hits in five innings Tuesday to take the loss against the Astros. 

Gray served up a homer to Chris Carter in the second inning -- a two-run shot that hit the facade. 

"Yeah stuff was OK, fastball wasn't great," Gray said. "Left a few balls up and that was it."

After winning his first four decisions of the year, Gray has now dropped his last two. 

Gray's next start is scheduled for Sunday in Tampa Bay. 


Athletics' Sonny Gray throws gem, takes first loss Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray was stuck with his first loss Wednesday despite allowing just one earned run on three hits in seven innings while striking out nine and walking none in his team's 2-0 defeat against the Red Sox.

Gray (4-1) gave up a leadoff single in the second inning and watched the runner advance to second on a wild pitch with one out before scoring on a two-out single. He allowed another single in the third and was perfect over the remainder of his outing, but the damage was done.

Gray owns a 1.61 ERA and 53:15 K:BB ratio in 56 innings. He'll square off with the Astros in Houston Tuesday.

Athletics P Sonny Gray strikes out 10 to improve to 4-0


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Athletics starter Sonny Gray continued his strong start to the 2015 season, striking out 10 batters to lead Oakland to a 7-1 triumph over the Rangers on Sunday. 

Gray moved to 4-0 on the year with relative ease, going 6 2/3 innings and allowing just two hits. He did battle with wildness, however, walking seven batters, which raised his pitch total to 119. 

"Sonny doesn't have anything, he's still one of the best pitchers in baseball," said catcher Stephen Vogtt to MLB.com. "He did not feel good today, and that's an understatement. He was not himself. The ball wasn't moving like it normally does. Didn't have a sinker. Didn't have a fastball, for that matter. Kinda just threw whatever he was throwing. He's just so good at manipulating the ball and making it move when he doesn't feel good."

Gray lowered his ERA on the season to 1.67, which is good for sixth in the AL, and his four wins are tied for the top spot in the league.
