Courtesy of the outstanding Brooks Baseball, here’s the velocity chart from Homer Bailey’s no-hitter last night against the Pirates. It’s pretty bananas.

Gee, think he knew he had a no-hitter going?

Yankees to trade Sonny Gray soon

Andy Martino of SNY reports that the Yankees “have multiple offers on the table” for Sonny Gray and appear close to trading him.

Probably best for everyone. Gray posted a 4.90 ERA in 2018 and drew the ire of basically everyone in the Yankee universe, but there does not seem to be anything physically wrong with him and you have to figure a change of scenery would do him good.

Where he goes is anyone’s guess — Martino says there are “approximately 11” teams interested — but we’ll find out soon enough.
