Indians-Athletics Preview

Sonny Gray is mired in the longest home winless streak of his career but is getting the ideal opponent to help end it. The Oakland Athletics ace is coming off a shutout and now faces the other team he recently blanked as he tries to continue his mastery of the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Gray (11-4, 2.16 ERA) has allowed one run with 22 strikeouts in 21 innings in three career starts...

Sonny Gray Oakland Athletics Los Angeles Dodgers Shutout First Career Hit

Tuesday was a tough day for the Oakland Athletics, as they continued their fire sale by sending infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist to the Kansas City Royals for two minor-league pitchers. 2015 is becoming more and more of a 'wash', so to speak, as Billy Beane's offseason reshaping of his club hasn't worked out. Despite all the dark clouds swirling over the green & gold, Sonny Gray...

Athletics 2, Dodgers 0: Sonny Gray Dominates, Brett Anderson Looks Healthy

The Dodgers fell to the Athletics 2-0 today despite a great outing from Brett Anderson that honestly deserved a better result. Today’s start was, of course, Anderson’s first since everybody figured he tore his Achilles against the Braves, and the first inning couldn’t have got off to a worse start, with a lead-off single on the first pitch being followed by a four-pitch walk...

Sonny Gray's fast rise earning him respect, lofty comparisons

Oakland Athletics ace Sonny Gray is a first-time All-Star this season, and could perhaps have started the game for the AL had he not pitched and thrown a two-hit shutout on Sunday.  Gray's strong start to the 2015 season, in which he's 10-3 with an AL - best 2.04 ERA, comes in just his second season as a full-time MLB pitcher.  As John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group explains...

Boxscore Breakdown #68: Gray skies turned red – Angels 12, Athletics 7

When you go down by five runs to Sonny Gray, you aren’t supposed to come back. That’s basically a death sentence, especially with an offense like that of the Angels. Yet, some way, somehow, the Angels turned everything Gray to Halo Red in one incredible half inning. Could this be a turning point on their season? Maybe, but we’ve been fooled before. But maybe this time it will...

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...

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.
