Giants have entered sweepstakes for former A's starting pitcher [report]
22 January, 2019, 08:44
Cincinnati is trying to buy low on the former Oakland A, who came to The Bronx at the 2017 trade deadline and never got comfortable pitching with the Yankees. NY will also get a draft pick, and possibly another piece. In 30 games, 23 starts, with the Yankees in 2018 he earned an 11-9 record with a 4.90 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.
Long is a 22-year-old second baseman who spent last season at Double-A, batting.261/.353/.412 with 123 strikeouts in 126 games.
Gray's home and away splits last season are staggering. The Yankees starting rotation does not even have room for Gray as it already features Luis Severino, James Paxton, Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, and J.A. Happ. So it's worth wondering if Gray will realize a notable improvement in a move to the National League. The 29-year-old likely would have been the Yankees sixth starter in 2019, so it appears they're trying to get value for him now rather than let him walk in free agency.
Looking deeper at FanGraphs, the answer is yes. Gray should pitch much better at Great American Ballpark.
Regardless of how you feel about the level of compensation that the Cincinnati Reds may give up in order to acquire Sonny Gray, you must admire their willingness to continue to try to improve next year's roster. He was the pitching coach at Vanderbilt from 2002-2012, and Gray made himself into a first-round pick under Johnson's tutelage.
For a while this winter, it sure looked like the New York Yankees were going to hold on to struggling starting Sonny Gray. On Saturday, the Yankees were close to validating that expectation as they reportedly were nearing an agreement with the Cincinnati Reds.
