Gray will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday. Gray will be more than well rested for his second start of the postseason, as the 27-year-old last toed the rubber for Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 5. He allowed three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings during that outing.
Gray will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Indians on Thursday, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 reports. The Yankees used their ace, Luis Severino, for Tuesday's wild-card game, so they'll turn to Gray for Thursday's series opener. The 27-year-old posted a 3.72 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 11 starts since being acquired by the Yankees. He'll face Trevor Bauer and a difficult Indians lineup in his first playoff appearance since 2013.
Gray (11-11) allowed six runs on six hits and five walks while striking out just two batters through 4.2 innings to take the loss against Tampa Bay on Thursday. This obviously wasn't Gray's strongest showing, and he's now lost three of his past four starts. However, the 27-year-old righty will still finish the regular season with a solid 3.49 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 8.5 K/9. Those numbers move the fantasy needle in all settings, and Gray will also have an opportunity to further boost his stock during the postseason.
Gray (10-11) allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Blue Jays. Gray gave up a solo homer in the third inning, but otherwise held the Blue Jays in check while the Yankees scored three times in the fifth inning to help him get his 10th victory of the campaign. He's been outstanding in three of his last four starts, and overall, he's been an excellent fantasy option since joining the Yankees on Aug. 3. He'll make his next start Friday against the Blue Jays.
Gray (9-11) allowed five runs on six hits and two walks across four innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Orioles. He struck out four. Gray allowed a pair of runs over the first three innings, but the big hit came in the form of a three-run home run from Tim Beckham in the fourth. He did not pump in strikes with his usual efficiency and struggled when he was forced to pitch from behind in the count. Gray had allowed more then two earned runs just one of his previous 14 starts and still owns a solid 3.38 ERA for the year. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Blue Jays.
