Oakland Athletics: Going on the DL is best for Sonny Gray

After another disappointing start, the Oakland Athletics placed Sonny Gray of the 15-day disabled list with a strained right trapezius. Although Gray may actually be hurt, taking a couple weeks off is what is best for the A’s and for Gray at this time. Gray has allowed at least four runs in each of his last five starts, so clearly something is wrong. Meanwhile, Oakland has lost...

All The A’s Are Down And This Guy Is Gray

Yesterday, Sonny Gray hit the Disgraceful List with a combination of ineffectiveness and Grey calling him a preseason schmohawk.  My schmohawks:  Schwarber, Pollock, Gray, Tulo and Sano.  If I were Sano, I'd move into the giant bubble that Tulo is apparently living in to still be healthy.  Seriously, if you were placing odds in the preseason on which one of those would hit the...

Five hottest potential MLB trade chips

Sonny Gray Is Almost Unarmed

Yesterday’s big news was that the Nationals agreed to a long-term extension with Stephen Strasburg. So that’s exciting for him, and for them, but you always have to think about the side-effects of these things. Several people pointed out that, without Strasburg, the upcoming pitching market sucks. And several people also pointed out that, with Strasburg locked up, this puts Billy...

Sonny Gray scratched from start due to food poisoning

It was 70 degrees Monday afternoon in Oakland, but the Athletics’ ace was under the weather. Sonny Gray has been scratched from his Opening Day start against the Chicago White Sox because of food poisoning. The A’s instead will turn to Rich Hill for Monday’s season opener. This obviously is disappointing news for the A’s, who will be tasked with facing Chris Sale. A Gray...
