The Yankees are going to try to trade Sonny Gray this offseason

20 Comments

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman suggested today that trading Sonny Gray this offseason would be best for both parties.

Gray posted a 4.90 ERA over 30 appearances, with 23 of them being starts prior to a demotion to the bullpen. While he seemed to handle it all professionally, it’s also the case that he has been a disappointment for the Yankees and that it would be in his best interests to get a change of scenery as well. As it is, he’s unlikely to be thought of as a starter by the Yankees again, but another club is likely willing to take a chance that he can return to his pre-2018 form.

That form: four and a half seasons in Oakland in which he posted a 3.42 ERA (114 ERA+) and was considered a front line starter.
