Sonny Gray is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, and Cincinnati Reds.
On August 10, the Athletics recalled Gray, and he made his Major League debut against Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto. A spot starts in place of Tommy Milone following Milone’s difficulties and the subsequent option to Triple-A Sacramento was all that was expected of him.
Gray, on the other hand, would eventually establish himself as the A’s fifth starter. In his home debut, Gray defeated Erik Bedard and the Houston Astros to earn his first major league victory. His 8-inning, one-hit shutout performance earned him a 5–0 victory.
Against the Minnesota Twins, on September 22, Gray pitched and won the AL West Division-winning game. After 12 games and 10 starts, he had a record of 5-3 with a 2.67 ERA, striking out 67.
Gray made his major league debut on October 5th, pitching in the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers Justin Verlander.
Stephen Vogt’s walk-off hit in the bottom of the ninth inning gave Oakland a 1–0 victory in a no-decision effort.
