Athletics' Sonny Gray: No extended absence expected

Gray (back) expects to return after the 15-day minimum, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

Gray landed on the 15-day DL on Sunday afternoon due to a strained right trapezius, but it's not an injury that is expected to cost the Oakland ace an extended absence. He did receive a cortisone shot following his removal from Friday's start, but it doesn't appear as if it had the intended results. He'll instead require a DL stint, and if everything goes as planned, Gray would only miss two starts and be back in action by early June.
