Sonny Gray fans eight in win over O's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray continued to pitch well on Sunday against the Orioles, improving to 11-3 on the year. The right-hander posted a quality start, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on two hits and two walks while striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings of a 10-2 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Gray has allowed only three earned runs. He owns a 2.72 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP over 20 starts (132 1/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday at Texas.

Sonny Gray stays dominant in win over Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray dominated the Mariners in Seattle on Sunday, scattering one unearned run on six hits over 7 2/3 innings to improve to 10-3 on the year. The right-hander struck out five and walked two in 108 pitches, for 70 strikes.

Gray enters the break with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 19 starts (125 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Sunday against Baltimore.

A's announce rotation plans for start of second half


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) The Athletics announced their post-All-Star-break rotation plans Sunday. Jeff Samardzija has drawn the first start of the second half Friday vs. Baltimore.

Jason Hammel will pitch the second game of the Baltimore series and Sonny Gray will finish off the three-game set. Scott Kazmir will then pitch the opener of a series against Houston July 22. He will be followed by Jesse Chavez before the rotation resets.


Sonny Gray strikes out eight in win vs. Giants Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray earned a win Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 6-1 victory over the Giants.

Gray (9-3) was given a 4-0 lead after the third inning and cruised until the seventh, when he surrendered a solo home run for his only blemish in the game. He's 3-0 with three quality starts over his last four outings, giving him a 2.97 ERA and 103:41 K:BB ratio in 118 innings. Gray is slated to take on the Mariners Sunday.


Sonny Gray tosses seven one-run innings in win Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray earned a win Thursday after giving up just one earned run on four hits and three walks in seven innings and striking out five in his team's 4-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

Gray (8-3) surrendered his only run on a questionable call in the second inning when the Blue Jays successfully overturned a ruling on a challenge to get their runner called out on a tag between first and second, which allowed the play at the plate to be a non-force and the lead runner to score on the non-tag. The A's formally played the game under protest after the ruling, though their win wipes out the protest.

Gray owns a 3.08 ERA and 95:40 K:BB ratio in 111 innings. He's slated to face the Giants Tuesday.


Sonny Gray gives up five runs in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray wasn't a factor in Saturday's decision after giving up five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 7-6, 14-inning win over the Marlins.

Gray was staked to a 4-0 lead after the top of the first inning before giving back three runs in the second inning and watching two more runners cross home in the fourth. The five runs match his worst outing of the season, which came three starts ago. Gray owns a 3.20 ERA and 90:37 K:BB ratio in 104 innings. He's scheduled to face the Blue Jays Thursday.


Athletics push back Sonny Gray to Saturday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Sonny Gray's next start will come Saturday at Miami, not Tuesday against the Mets as scheduled, Athletics manager Bob Melvin told reporters. Oakland is giving the 24-year-old Gray extra rest as a precaution. He leads the team with 99 innings and has never pitched a full season in the majors.

Gray is 7-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 15 starts.


Athletics might skip Sonny Gray to keep innings down


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray leads the team with 99 innings and might not pitch again until the weekend series at Miami, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Gray's regular turn would be Tuesday against the Mets.

He's 7-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 86 strikeouts but has never pitched a full season in the majors. Oakland has two days off this week, which makes it easier to push back Gray.


Sonny Gray keeps Rangers at bay in win No. 7


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray shut the Rangers offense down Wednesday, in a 4-2 win.

Gray never trailed in the game, as the offense got ahead early. He ended up limiting the Rangers to two runs on six hits in seven innings of work, while striking out seven batters and walking two on 100 pitches in the win.

Gray has been one of the best pitchers in the American League this season, ranking eighth in ERA (2.91), while going 7-3 in 15 starts. He is set to make his next start Tuesday against the Mets. 


Sonny Gray twirls quality start in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray twirled a quality start Friday night against the Yankees, but dropped to 6-3 on the year in his team's 7-0 shutout loss to New York. The right-hander yielded three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings of work.

Gray owns a 2.93 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 14 starts (92 innings). He will look to get back in the win column Wednesday at home against Texas. He is 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA in two starts, including a complete game in his previous two meetings against the Rangers this season.

Sonny Gray surrenders five runs in loss vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray endured his worst start of the season Saturday, giving up five earned runs on four hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 6-3 loss to the Orioles.

Gray (6-2) hadn't failed to complete six innings in a start before Saturday, when he gave up more than four runs for the first time this season. Even with the rare dud, Gray has delivered quality starts in 11 of his 13 outings while posting a 2.83 ERA and 72:31 K:BB ratio in 86 innings. He's slated to face the Yankees Friday.


Sonny Gray gets back on track in win over Halos


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray (6-1) bounced back with a win in a quality start, scattering three earned runs on seven hits and three walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-3 victory over the Angels on Sunday.

Over his last four starts covering 26 2/3 innings, Gray has permitted nine earned runs. He owns a 2.45 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP through his first 12 starts (80 2/3 innings). He will look to keep rolling Saturday at Baltimore.

Sonny Gray surrenders four runs in no-decision Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up four earned runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings while striking out five in his team's 6-5 loss to the Tigers.

Gray failed to deliver a quality start for the first time this season Tuesday, allowing a pair of runs in the first inning before Miguel Cabrera homered in the third inning. The fourth run of the game came on a fourth-inning double, and he was in line for the win before the bullpen squandered the lead. Gray owns a 2.31 ERA and 60:24 K:BB ratio in 74 innings. He'll take on the Angels Sunday.


Sonny Gray getting a big assist from his defense


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/27/2014) With a 5-1 record, 1.99 ERA and 1.09 WHIP heading into Tuesday's contest with the Tigers, Sonny Gray has been a pretty extraordinary Fantasy pitcher, but his skills ratios have been nothing special. He's been something short of dominating (7.3 K/9, 9.6 percent swinging strike rate), and his control (61 percent strikes thrown) leaves something to be desired.

What Gray does exceptionally well is get ground balls, which he has done at a 60 percent rate this season. And as I noted in a recent blog post, the Athletics have been unmatched at preventing base hits on ground balls, holding opponents to a .197 batting average on grounders. Even though Gray has walked 3.0 batters per nine innings, he has been helping owners with WHIP, as he has held hitters to a .181 ground ball batting average. As low as that is (the major league mark is .240), it's not too far off the norm for the A's pitching staff.

Unless he improves his control or gets more strikeouts, Gray is due to regress, but he may not fall off his current pace by much. With Josh Donaldson, Eric Sogard and Jed Lowrie backing him up in the infield, Gray could remain among the Fantasy pitching elite, even without the benefit of elite peripherals.


Sonny Gray nearly flawless in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray continued his stellar start to the season, twirling eight strong innings in a game they would go on to lose in extra innings to the Rays.

Gray limited the Rays to just five hits, all singles, in his eight innings of work. He allowed just one run, in the seventh inning, but actually exited the game in line for a loss before a late rally sent it to extra innings.

Gray finished the start with three strikeouts and two walks, while taking a no-decision and dropping his ERA to an American League-leading 1.99 mark. He remains 5-1 on the season heading into his next start, Tuesday against the Tigers. 


Sonny Gray hurls a gem in win over Indians


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray matched a career high with nine strikeouts in a quality start Friday night against the Indians in Cleveland, earning his fifth win of the season.

Gray (5-1) permitted a solo home run to Nick Swisher in the opening frame for his only damage of the night. He yielded one run on two hits and three walks in six innings of an 11-1 victory. He tossed 90 pitches, 55 for strikes.

Gray's ERA improved from 2.17 to 2.10 on the year. Over his last four starts covering 28 innings, the right-handed hurler has surrendered only six earned runs. He will make his next start Thursday at Tampa Bay.

Sonny Gray delivers quality start in no-decision Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray didn't factor into the decision Saturday after giving up three earned runs on six hits and two walks in seven innings Saturday while striking out three in his team's 4-3 win over the Nationals.

Gray surrendered a solo home run and a two-run double in the third inning but otherwise held the Nationals scoreless to record his eighth straight quality start to open the season. His offense evened the game in the ninth inning to take Gray off the hook for the loss. He owns a 2.17 ERA and 43:18 K:BB ratio in 54 innings. Gray is slated to take on the Indians Friday.


Sonny Gray tosses quality start in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray, who pitched a complete-game shutout his last time out, kept rolling on Sunday against the Red Sox, but was unable to factor into the decision in a 3-2 win in extras. The right-hander permitted only two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings.

Gray threw 102 pitches, 60 for strikes. His ERA now stands at 1.91. Over his last two starts covering 15 innings, Gray has allowed only two earned runs. He'll look to keep it going Saturday at home against Washington. He is 2-1 with a 2.52 ERA in four starts at home.

Sonny Gray earns first career complete-game shutout win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray put together his first career complete-game shutout on Monday against the Rangers, scattering three hits in nine scoreless innings to improve to 4-1 on the year. The last shutout by an A's starter in Arlington was Dallas Braden in August 28, 2010.

Gray struck out six and walked one, improving his ERA to 1.76. He threw 108 pitches, 73 for strikes. Over his first two starts on the road covering 16 innings, Gray has allowed only one earned run.

Following the 4-0 victory, Gray will look to keep it going Sunday at Boston.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Gray (3-1) surrendered a run on a first-inning triple, then gave up one each in the fifth and sixth innings, with the latter coming via a solo home run. He hadn't allowed a home run this season before the sixth-inning blast. Gray owns a 2.25 ERA and 31:13 K:BB ratio in 32 innings. He's on track to face the Rangers on the road Monday.

Gray has not lost a decision since Sept. 11, 2013. He owns a 1.80 ERA, and 1.36 WHIP along with 23:9 K:BB ratio over 25 innings pitched. He'll be seeking win No. 4 come Wednesday against Texas.

Sonny Gray Ks nine in second straight win vs. M's


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Athletics starter Sonny Gray collected his second consecutive win on Saturday against the Mariners. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out nine in seven innings of work.

All two of Gray's wins this season have come against Seattle. He has not allowed more than one earned run in each of his first three starts. He'll look for win No. 3 on Friday against Houston.
