  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Earns first win

    Gray (1-1) allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Gray allowed a run in each of the first and third innings, but he retired the last 10 batters he faced to turn in a solid performance. He induced eight groundouts, though he backed up his five strikeouts with only four swinging strikes across 84 total pitches. Even so, the performance was a step forward for Gray, as he turned in his longest outing of the campaign. Overall, he has a 3.48 ERA with a 25:9 K:BB across 20.2 frames this season.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Fans eight in no-decision

    Gray allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over 4.1 innings in Friday's win over the Guardians. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

    Gray got through four innings with just one run allowed before Austin Hedges knocked a solo shot to lead off the fifth. The 32-year-old righty threw 82 pitches and forced just nine swinging strikes but still struck out a season-high eight batters. Gray has yet to finish five innings in any of his four starts this year. He'll carry a 3.68 ERA into his projected start in Oakland next week.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Throws four shutout innings

    Gray threw four shutout innings Sunday against the Athletics, striking out seven while walking two and allowing two hits. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gray was limited to 66 pitches, which wasn't too big of a surprise given that it was his first outing back from a hamstring injury, having previously made just one three-inning rehab start. He didn't pitch long enough to get a win, but it was a very encouraging outing nonetheless, as the only time an Athletic reached scoring position was when Elvis Andrus singled and stole second base in the top of the third. Gray may still be on a pitch count for his next outing, which could come Friday against the Guardians.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Starting Saturday vs. A's

    Gray (hamstring) is coming off the injured list to start Saturday's game against the A's, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Earlier this week, it seemed Gray would make a rehab start at Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, but that start will instead come for the big club in a favorable matchup. He made his only rehab start Sunday and hasn't pitched in the majors since April 16. Assuming he is fully healthy, Gray should be able to improve on his season numbers against an Oakland offense that ranks 26th in the majors with an 82 wRC+ and second-worst in baseball with a 26.0 K%.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Option to start Saturday

    Gray (hamstring) could be activated to start Saturday against the A's, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    He was originally going to make a rehab start for Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, but now it's looking like he could make that start in the majors with Chris Paddack getting pushed to Sunday. Gray threw three scoreless innings with five strikeouts and no walks Sunday for Single-A Fort Myers.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Another rehab start on tap

    Gray (hamstring) will make a second minor-league rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

    Gray threw three scoreless innings with five strikeouts and no walks Sunday in his first rehab start for Single-A Fort Myers. Given the strong showing with Fort Myers, Gray looked to be a candidate to potentially return from the 10-day injured list this week, but the Twins will instead give him additional time to stretch out in the minors. Gray's continued absence should pave the way for rookie Josh Winder to make a second turn through the rotation.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Sharp in rehab outing

    Gray (hamstring) threw three scoreless innings with five strikeouts and no walks Sunday in a rehab start for Single-A Fort Myers.

    Gray will likely return to the rotation Friday against Oakland, but there hasn't been an official announcement. The Twins will likely see how Gray is feeling Monday before making a decision.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Rehab start on tap

    Gray (hamstring) is expected to make a rehab start with Single-A Fort Myers this weekend, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Gray will throw a bullpen session in the next couple days prior to the start with Fort Myers, which could be the final hurdle in his rehab program before being activated from the injured list. If that's the case, the 32-year-old could rejoin Minnesota's starting rotation late next week.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Throws another bullpen session

    Gray (hamstring) will not be activated from the 10-day IL when eligible Wednesday despite throwing a second bullpen session Tuesday without issue, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said it hopefully won't be too much longer before he's activated. The Twins may move back to a six-man rotation when Gray is ready to return, as the other five starters have been throwing well.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Heading to injured list

    Minnesota placed Gray on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a low-grade strain of his right hamstring, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The 32-year-old exited Saturday's start after 1.2 innings with tightness in his hamstring, and he'll require a stint on the injured list. However, it's not believed to be a serious issue and the Twins expect Gray to miss only one start, so he could be back April 27 after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Day-to-day with tight hamstring

    Gray's leg injury that forced his early exit from his start Saturday against the Red Sox is a tight hamstring, and he's merely considered day-to-day for now, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Gray exited after throwing just 1.2 innings, allowing a pair of runs on a second-inning homer by Alex Verdugo. It's an encouraging sign that he's only considered day-to-day, but a trip to the injured list is seemingly still in play if he's forced to miss a start.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Exits with apparent leg injury

    Gray left Saturday's start in the second inning against Boston due to an apparent leg injury, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Gray appeared to hurt his hamstring or groin after throwing a pitch and showed discomfort. He left after meeting with the team trainer. Josh Winder replaced him on the mound.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: No-decision in Twins debut

    Gray pitched 4.2 innings, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in a 4-3 loss Saturday against Seattle.

    Gray was removed after 76 pitches with the Twins trailing 2-1. After making only one start in the spring, it's no surprise that Gray did not make it through five innings. The 32-year-old averaged just over five innings per start in the last two seasons and probably won't be relied upon to pitch late into games anytime soon. His next start will likely come next weekend in Boston.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Looks sharp in lone spring start

    Gray threw four scoreless innings in Sunday's spring training start with six strikeouts, no walks and no hits allowed.

    It was Gray's first and only major-league spring start, though he had previously thrown in a minor-league game. He looks ready for the regular season and is expected to make his first start Saturday against Seattle.
