If Sonny Gray Is Traded By A's, Red Sox Are Top Suitors
Multiple sources are reporting that, if A's GM Billy Beane really wants to trade Sonny Gray, the Red Sox are the top landing spot. Jon Heyman of TodaysKnuckleball.com reports that Red Sox honcho Dave Dombrowski has already put in a "feeling out" phone call and Boston remains the most likely trade partner this year. Gray struggled most of the year, but showed signs of his old self in his last start. His trade value is still artificially low and thus the Red Sox could probably get him with less of a 'prospect hit' than they might have otherwise. Gray is still only 26 years old—and, even with a bad 2016 so far, he is still 36-25 with a 3.16 ERA for his not-quite 4-year career. We say—get him!
