Sonny Gray to pitch Wednesday

1 Comment

Athletics starter Sonny Gray was scratched from Monday’s Opening Day start against the White Sox due to food poisoning. It was announced last night that he will make the start in Wednesday’s game, however.

There was some hope that he would be ready to go today, but he’ll get another day to recuperate and hydrate and do the sorts of things you have to do when you get food poisoning. Chris Bassitt will move up to start Tuesday against White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana.

Bassitt had better be on his game. Effin’ Quintana. That creep can roll, dude.
