July 19 4:55 PM PT5:55 PM MT6:55 PM CT7:55 PM ET19:55 ET23:55 GMT7:55 4:55 PM MST6:55 PM EST7:25 PM VEN3:55 UAE (+1)6:55 PM CT-Gray improved to 6-4, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 on Wednesday. Gray struck out six, ending the game with a 3.66 ERA and 1.18 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray won his third straight start and fourth in five. When speculation arose from the White Sox side before his Friday outing that the right-hander had been scratched because of a possible deal, the A's quickly announced that he was indeed taking the mound for his scheduled outing. This could be his final home start with the A's.
July 15 8:21 AM PT9:21 AM MT10:21 AM CT11:21 AM ET11:21 ET15:21 GMT23:21 8:21 AM MST10:21 AM EST10:51 AM VEN19:21 UAE10:21 AM CT-Sonny Gray improved to 5-4, allowing two hits and one walk over 6.0 scoreless innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Cleveland Indians 5-0 on Friday. Gray struck out five, ending the game with a 3.72 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray has boosted his fantasy stock - as well as his potential trade value - by going 3-1 with a 1.33 ERA over a four-start stretch in which he's yielded just 11 hits across 27 innings. The 2015 All-Star's name will be mentioned heavily in the coming weeks as possibly the best available starting pitcher on the trade market.
July 5 5:09 PM PT6:09 PM MT7:09 PM CT8:09 PM ET20:09 ET0:09 GMT8:09 5:09 PM MST7:09 PM EST7:39 PM VEN4:09 UAE (+1)7:09 PM CT-Sonny Gray improved to 4-4, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on Wednesday. Gray struck out five, ending the game with a 4.00 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray surrendered a two-run home run to Matt Davidson in the fifth, the only blemish during an otherwise strong outing. He has allowed four runs over his last 21 innings - a 1.71 ERA.
July 1 9:09 AM PT10:09 AM MT11:09 AM CT12:09 PM ET12:09 ET16:09 GMT0:09 9:09 AM MST11:09 AM EST11:39 AM VEN20:09 UAE11:09 AM CT-Sonny Gray fell to 3-4, allowing one run on two hits and one walk in 8.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Friday. Gray struck out four, ending the game with a 4.09 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Though counterpart Mike Foltynewicz was just a bit better, A's fans and Gray's owners have to be encouraged about his second straight strong performance. The right-hander held the White Sox to one earned run and four hits while fanning seven over seven innings to win his previous start, and he'll face Chicago again next time out.
June 26 12:43 PM PT1:43 PM MT2:43 PM CT3:43 PM ET15:43 ET19:43 GMT3:43 12:43 PM MST2:43 PM EST3:13 PM VEN23:43 UAE2:43 PM CT-Sonny Gray improved to 3-3, allowing two runs - one earned - on four hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-3 on Sunday. Gray struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.45 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray halted a four-start winless streak with one of his best performances of the season, with the one walk he surrendered perhaps the most encouraging sign. The Oakland ace issued seven free passes while being tagged for eight runs in 10 1/3 innings over his previous two starts.
June 21 8:09 AM PT9:09 AM MT10:09 AM CT11:09 AM ET11:09 ET15:09 GMT23:09 8:09 AM MST10:09 AM EST10:39 AM VEN19:09 UAE10:09 AM CT-Sonny Gray fell to 2-3, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks in 5.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Houston Astros 8-4 on Tuesday. Gray struck out five, ending the game with a 4.84 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray's winless streak was extended to five starts and he's posted a lackluster 6.43 ERA during that stretch. Though he's still averaging more than a strikeout per inning, the Oakland ace has issued 13 walks in 28 frames during his drought.
June 16 11:47 AM PT12:47 PM MT1:47 PM CT2:47 PM ET14:47 ET18:47 GMT2:47 11:47 AM MST1:47 PM EST2:17 PM VEN22:47 UAE1:47 PM CT-Sonny Gray allowed three runs on eight hits and three walks in 5.1 innings as the Oakland Athletics defeated the New York Yankees 8-7 on Thursday.

Analysis: Gray's still getting his feet under him after not pitching until May, but four of his last five outings have been quality starts.
May 30 6:26 PM PT7:26 PM MT8:26 PM CT9:26 PM ET21:26 ET1:26 GMT9:26 6:26 PM MST8:26 PM EST8:56 PM VEN5:26 UAE (+1)8:26 PM CT-Sonny Gray fell to 2-2, allowing a career high-tying seven runs on nine hits and two walks in 4.2 innings, as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Cleveland Indians 9-4 on Tuesday.

May 24 5:38 PM PT6:38 PM MT7:38 PM CT8:38 PM ET20:38 ET0:38 GMT8:38 5:38 PM MST7:38 PM EST8:08 PM VEN4:38 UAE (+1)7:38 PM CT-Sonny Gray improved to 2-1, allowing one run on three hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Miami Marlins 4-1 on Wednesday. Gray struck out 11, ending the game with a 3.34 ERA and 1.08 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray, who began the season on the DL because of a strained lat, won back-to-back games for the first time since April 16 and 22 last season. He was one strikeout shy of matching his career high set on Sept. 23, 2014, against the Angels. He had double-digit strikeouts for the first time since fanning 10 Rangers on May 3, 2015. He makes his next start Tuesday at Cleveland. In his last start there on July 31, Gray was tagged for seven runs in 3.1 innings.
May 19 8:20 AM PT9:20 AM MT10:20 AM CT11:20 AM ET11:20 ET15:20 GMT23:20 8:20 AM MST10:20 AM EST10:50 AM VEN19:20 UAE10:20 AM CT-Sonny Gray improved to 1-1, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-3 on Thursday. Gray struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.97 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: In his 100th career major league start, Gray earned his first victory since July 26, 2016. Gray had two stints on the disabled list last year when he went 5-11 with a 5.69 ERA, and he started this season on the DL with a strained right shoulder. On Thursday, he pitched more like the ace who went 33-20 over his first three seasons. "He's our anchor, our ace," catcher Stephen Vogt said. "To see him throw like that tonight, that's him."
May 14 8:58 AM PT9:58 AM MT10:58 AM CT11:58 AM ET11:58 ET15:58 GMT23:58 8:58 AM MST10:58 AM EST11:28 AM VEN19:58 UAE10:58 AM CT-Sonny Gray allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in 6.0 innings as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Texas Rangers 6-5 on Saturday. Gray struck out three, ending the game with a 3.78 ERA and 1.32 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray pitched well but said he still didn't feel sharp in his third start since being on the DL to start the season with a strained right shoulder. Keep an eye on this situation.
May 8 7:05 AM PT8:05 AM MT9:05 AM CT10:05 AM ET10:05 ET14:05 GMT22:05 7:05 AM MST9:05 AM EST9:35 AM VEN18:05 UAE9:05 AM CT-Gray allowed four runs - one earned - on seven hits and one walk in 4.2 innings as the Oakland Athletics defeated the Detroit Tigers 8-6 on Sunday.
Analysis: Gray struck out two, ending the game with a 4.22 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
May 3 8:49 AM PT9:49 AM MT10:49 AM CT11:49 AM ET11:49 ET15:49 GMT23:49 8:49 AM MST10:49 AM EST11:19 AM VEN19:49 UAE10:49 AM CT-Sonny Gray fell to 0-1, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Oakland Athletics lost to the Minnesota Twins 9-1 on Tuesday. Gray struck out four, ending the game with a 6.00 ERA and 1.17 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Gray was hurt by the long ball in his delayed season debut, serving up three homers that accounted for all four runs. Expect the 2015 All-Star to fare better when he faces Detroit at home on Sunday.
Mar. 9 1:16 PM PT2:16 PM MT3:16 PM CT4:16 PM ET16:16 ET21:16 GMT5:16 2:16 PM MST4:16 PM EST4:46 PM VEN1:16 UAE (+1)3:16 PM CT-Gray has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and will make his 2017 debut Tuesday at Minnesota.
