Sonny Gray News
Cincinnati Reds right-hander Sonny Gray (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday. Gray left his Tuesday start early, throwing just three innings and 50 pitches in a 5-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. The team announced that he was dealing with groin tightness after the game. Cincinnati called up right-hander Art Warren from Triple-A to take Gray's spot on the big league roster. Manager David Bell told reporters that he expects Gray to miss at least two starts but the hurler remains without a definite timetable. Bell was also unsure when asked about who would start in Gray's spot in the rotation, a spot that next comes up on Sunday. Gray will be missed in the Reds' rotation as he has a 1-4 record, 3.42 ERA, and 65 strikeouts over 50 innings of work in 2021.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Sonny Gray (groin) was removed early during his start against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday. Gray exited during the top of the fourth inning due to groin tightness. It's a shame since Gray was pitching well until he was forced to exit. Fantasy managers are going to be need to wait until more information is known after the MRI. It wouldn't be shocking to see Gray spend some time on the injured list. Managers should hold onto him through this injury because he was pitching well up to this point.
Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Sonny Gray left Tuesday's start against the Brewers. It's unknown what exactly caused Gray's early departure, although it certainly isn't welcome news for fantasy managers. Overall, the veteran was having a productive outing, recording five strikeouts throughout just three innings of work. More information regarding his status moving ahead will likely come soon.
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.
