Athletics P Sonny Gray struggles in tie with Brewers


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray was rocked in a 9-9 tie against the Brewers, reports MLB.com.

Gray gave up six earned runs on eight hits and three walks in 2 2/3 innings pitched. The 25-year-old is slated to be the team's opening day starter.

Over his career he has an ERA of 2.99 with 250 strikeouts.


Athletics tab Sonny Gray for Opening Day start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Monday that Sonny Gray would start the team's regular-season opener April 6 against the Rangers, MLB.com reports.

Gray gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.08 ERA and 183:74 K:BB ratio in 219 innings in 2014, his first full season in the rotation.

Melvin also indicated that Scott Kazmir would start either the second or third game of the season, but that the rest of the rotation has yet to be lined up. He did leave open the possibility of Barry Zito making the rotation, saying, "I don't want to exclude him," the Bay Area News Group reports.


Athletics' Sonny Gray bounces back after rough spring debut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray allowed two runs on six hits in four innings in his second start of spring training and he's feeling "a million times better" than he did at this point last spring, reports MLB.com.

Manager Bob Melvin liked that Gray turned in a better performance Sunday.

"I thought he threw the ball good," said Melvin. "He was throwing a lot of first-pitch heaters and they were swinging at a lot of them. Stuff was good. What we're looking out of him is to just get his endurance up and get him ready for the season."

Gray thought it was a lot better than five days ago/

"I thought it was night and day better than last time," said Gray. "I thought it was awesome. I felt great. I think it was big to be able to limit damage in the second inning there. Second and third with one out, to be able to get out of that was huge. I think, body-wise, stuff-wise, it was all really good. The whole focus today was to just come in and throw a ton of strikes. Last time, I got a little over-amped and I didn't throw as many. I know I was ahead of everyone today, which is awesome."


Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray tosses uneven game in spring debut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray gave up two runs on five hits in 2 1/3 innings in his first start of spring training Tuesday. Gray admitted he was a bit too amped up.

"I was definitely excited; there's no doubt about it," said Gray to MLB.com. "I think that's kind of why I threw a little simulated game last week, because Bob [Melvin] and Curt [Young] know I get really excited out there. And that's another thing, I gotta learn how to slow down again and execute pitches instead of being a crazy bull out there."

Manager Bob Melvin said he thought Gray's command was just fine.

"The command may not be the best we're used to seeing it, but for me, he threw some crisp curveballs, some good sliders, good life on his fastball, so all good," he continued. "I'm just looking for life. He gets pretty excited that first time out there, and it's more about seeing the action on his pitches, and all of them were good for me."


Athletics set spring debuts for Sonny Grazy, Scott Kazmir


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) After holding Sonny Gray and Scott Kazmir out for the first week of spring games, the Athletics have scheduled the spring debuts of the two pitchers, MLB.com reports.

Gray, who threw a simulated game Thursday, will face the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, while Kazmir, who threw Wednesday, is set to square off with the Mariners next Thursday. Gray remains the favorite to open the season on the mound for the Athletics.


Athletics to hold back Gray, Kazmir the first week of games


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) The Athletics will hold back pitchers Sonny Gray and Scott Kazmir during the first week of spring games, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Neither player is dealing with an injury, but the team has opted to bring them along slowly to kick things off. The move will also allow the Athletics to get a better look at the players competing for the fifth spot in the rotation. Those players will likely pick up innings in place of Kazmir and Gray. 

Gray, 25, is coming off the biggest workload of his major-league career. He posted a 3.08 ERA over 219 innings.

The 31-year-old Kazmir made 30 starts last year. It was the first time since 2007 Kazmir reached that milestone. He put up a 3.55 ERA over 190 1/3 innings.
