SONNY GRAY RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Athletics, The Phillies, And Short Pitchers

If you watch the Athletics, you may have noticed something about their pitching staffs over the last few years. They’re… shorter than average. Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, and Jarrod Parker are all six foot one or shorter, and none of the A’s pitchers are taller than six foot six. Look across the country at the […]

Player Profile #98: Sonny Gray | SP | OAK

Heading into last season I was very high on Sonny Gray. He made his debut in mid-2013 right before the All-Star break and pitched to some impressive ratios across 64 solid innings. Following up his notable rookie campaign, he was able to put up very similar numbers over a full season’s worth of innings and ended up as the 27th-best SP on ESPN’s Player Rater. If you look at...

Sonny Gray’s Inevitable Rise to Stardom

Sonny Gray, right-handed hurler for the Oakland A’s, will continue his rise to stardom in 2015 and beyond. (Mandatory Credit: Rick Yeatts/Getty Images) Sonny Gray doesn’t physically resemble an ace. Upon closer examination, the Oakland A’s starting pitcher doesn’t even have the build of a typical mound presence. Listed at 5-10, 180 pounds, and probably only weighing that...

Are the Oakland A’s prepping for a big move?

Over the past couple of weeks, the Oakland A’s have traded five of their All-Star for 11 players and six of them are pitchers. Additionally, all but one of those acquired players are 25-years-old or younger. Many have been confused by these trades since it does not make that much sense to trade all of the team’s star players. However, it seems as though the Oakland A’s could...

WATCH: A's pitcher Sonny Gray pranks unwitting New Yorkers

MLB Fan Cave can be an awesome thing, as Oakland Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray proves here. The young starting pitcher took to the streets of New York City to prank some innocent bystanders.  And the Results were pretty epic. Your browser does not support iframes. Is it weird that the funniest part of this video to me is when Gray goes up to a New Yorker, says “tag your it” and...

Oakland A’s: Analyzing the Jeff Samardzija trade

The Oakland A’s are considered by many to be favorites to contend for the World Series title in the American League but their acquisition of starting pitcher, Jeff Samardzija from Chicago may make the difference between another early exit in the playoffs and a deep run into October. Oakland’s pitching staff was already one of the league’s best despite lacking a bonafide ace...

The Oakland A’s most promising draft picks of 2014

This year the Oakland A’s went very college heavy during the draft with 30 out of the 40 draftees being collegiate players. By selecting college players, it is more likely that they will actually sign with the team and will work their way up to the minor leagues fairly quickly. This happened with current starter Sonny Gray who was drafted in 2011 from Vanderbilt University and...

The Oakland A’s top three prospects for 2014

With so many new players from all over the country joining the Oakland A’s this off-season, not much light has been shed on top prospects who are working their way up through the A’s farm system. The Athletics are known for bringing up talented young spitfires from their minor league affiliates much like how they brought up star pitcher Sonny Gray last year. So who are the A’s...
