Sonny Gray News
The Cincinnati Reds are once again believed to be open to trading right-hander Sonny Gray this offseason, but they've indicated to rival executives that starters Tyler Mahle and Luis Castillo are off limits. Mahle and Castillo are both controllable through the 2023 season. Gray has a $10 million base salary next season and can be retained through a $12 million club option for the 2023 season. The veteran right-hander has a 3.49 ERA with a 10.6 K/9 in his three seasons with the Reds, but he recently turned 32 years old and was on the injured list three separate times with three separate injuries in 2021. Gray had a 4.19 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, 155 strikeouts and 50 walks in 135 1/3 innings over his 26 starts last season.
Cincinnati Reds right-hander Sonny Gray allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings in a 6-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. Gray struck out six, walked one, and allowed five hits in the loss. The veteran right-hander finishes his 2021 season with a 7-9 record, 4.19 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 155 strikeouts over 135 1/3 innings of work. Gray's 4.19 ERA is the highest he has posted since back in 2018 when he finished with a 4.90 ERA as a member of the New York Yankees. The veteran right-hander is under contract with the Reds for another year with a club option in 2023.
Cincinnati Reds right-hander Sonny Gray struggled in an 8-7 loss to the Washington Nationals on Friday. Gray allowed four runs over four innings while striking out three and walking four. He struggled with his control, throwing just 52 of 88 pitches for strikes on the way to tying a season-high with four free passes. Gray now has a 7-8 record, 3.99 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 149 strikeouts over 130 2/3 innings of work. He is lined up to make his final start of the regular season against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
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.
