Sonny Gray News
The Minnesota Twins placed starting pitcher Sonny Gray (hamstring) on the 15-day injured list on Tuesday with a right hamstring strain and also reinstated right-hander Trevor Megill from the COVID injured list. The team also outrighted right-hander Dereck Rodriguez. Gray left his start early on Monday after just two innings and will now miss at least the next two weeks. He'll be eligible to return for the final game of the regular season on Oct. 5, so he's basically done for the year. The 32-year-old veteran right-hander has gone 8-5 for the Twins this year with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP with 36 walks and 117 strikeouts in 119 2/3 innings pitched.
Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Sonny Gray (hamstring) left his start early on Monday against the Cleveland Guardians with right hamstring tightness. Gray made it just two innings before being pulled, allowing four earned runs on five hits while walking one and striking out one. The 32-year-old right-hander will surely go for more tests on his injured leg, and until we know more, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day. With time running out in the regular season and with Gray already dealing with a hamstring injury earlier this year, it's quite possible he'll be shut down the rest of the way. Heading into his start on Monday, Gray was 8-4 with a 2.83 ERA (3.29 FIP), a 1.09 WHIP and a 116:35 K:BB in 117 2/3 innings over 23 starts.
Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Sonny Gray was on his game on Wednesday in the 7-0 shutout win over the Kansas City Royals. Gray threw seven shutout innings and allowed only three hits, walking one and striking out eight in the process. The 32-year-old veteran right-hander now sits with an 8-4 record, 2.91 ERA (3.29 FIP), 1.10 WHIP, 116 strikeouts and 35 walks in 117 2/3 innings over 23 starts in his first season in Minnesota. He's been especially good in his last 10 outings, going 4-1 with a 1.98 ERA (3.06 FIP), 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 54 2/3 innings pitched. Fantasy managers should continue to roll him out there in their starting lineups when he takes the rubber next.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Sonny Gray put forth his second straight solid season since leaving the Big Apple. The 31-year-old went 5-3 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and a career-high 30.6% strikeout rate over 56 innings pitched. He did allow above-average hard contact (his average exit velocity and hard-hit rate were in the 77th and 78th percentile of baseball), but he avoided damaging contact by keeping the ball on the ground with a 6.8-degree launch angle. Gray also did a great job keeping hitters off balance, throwing his curveball, sinker, four-seamer, and slider almost evenly. With a curveball spin rate in the 93rd percentile of baseball and a fastball spin rate in the 88th percentile, there is no reason to think that Gray cannot produce elite strikeout numbers again in 2021. His overall ADP is currently 65, making him the 23rd pitcher off the board. This seems totally reasonable, with a ceiling perhaps slightly higher.
