Sonny Gray takes liner off of ankle, but is expected to make his next start


Athletics starter Sonny Gray took a liner off of his right ankle in the bottom of the fourth inning and had to leave after completing the fifth. Gray held the Rays scoreless on four hits and no walks while striking out four.

X-rays came back negative. Manager Bob Melvin doesn’t expect Gray to miss his next scheduled start on Friday against the Yankees,’s Troy Provost-Heron reports. That’s good news for the A’s, as Gray owns a 5-2 record with a superb 1.77 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 61/18 K/BB ratio in 66 innings.
