Sonny Gray Added To The DL

Sonny Gray started off his season with a disappointing 3-5 record with a 6.19 ERA, definitely not what the Athletics was hoping to get from him. Now Gray’s struggles continue as he has been added to the 15 day disabled list with a strained Trapezius. Oakland sent Gray to the DL two days after throwing 3 wild pitches and walking 4 in a 8-3 loss to the New York Yankees. 

Gray said that he had taken an anti-inflammatory and cortisone shot after the loss to the Yankees, however the condition has not gotten any better. Hopefully Gray’s season will improve after coming off the DL.

The Athletics have brought up Daniel Coulombe from Triple A Nashville. Coulombe came in to pitch out of the pen on Sunday going 2 innings, giving up no hits with 2 strikeouts.
