Yankees open to trading Sonny Gray after bad season

Sonny Gray's tenure with the Yankees hasn't panned out almost as well as the organization had hoped, and general manager Brian Cashman candidly told reporters Friday that he plans to explore trade scenarios this offseason (Twitter link via Newsday's David Lennon).

During his final start and the four games he appeared in as a relief pitcher in, Gray posted a 3.27 ERA, giving up five earned runs, 11 hits, and one home run while striking out 10.

He added, "It hasn't worked out this far".

With their season having been cut short this past week, the Yankees are beginning to look towards next year.

"I do think if I do find a match somewhere for him at some point, then you're going to see what we hoped to see here. I got nothing cooking, but I plan on doing some cooking if I can over time, for his sake and for ours". And given the Yankees' history with Gray, it's also not surprising.

NY acquired Gray from the Oakland A's just before the trade deadline in July 2017 and thought he would be a key member of the starting rotation. When pitching away from the Bronx, Gray logged a strong 3.17 ERA and yielded just three homers in 71 innings of work.

Acquired in a high-profile trade that sent Dustin Fowler, Jorge Mateo and James Kaprielian to the Athletics in July 2017, Gray gave the Yankees 65 1/3 innings of 3.72 ERA ball down the stretch that season.

Nothing has come easy for Gray and the Yankees since he was traded, so it should be pretty clear why a fresh start for Gray could be the best outcome this season for all sides. Although the Rays may not need him, a move for Sonny Gray would not only improve their pitching staff, but also weaken the staff of the team that took their playoff spot-an all-around good move for Tampa.

Despite all of Gray's struggles in the past two or three years, he has still flashed huge talent as a starter, so there should be plenty of teams hoping they can turn things around for Gray, who will be 29 by the start of next season.
