  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Fourth straight no-decision Tuesday

    Gray allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings during Tuesday's loss to the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gray blanked the Giants through the first five innings before running into trouble in the sixth. He opened up the frame by giving up a double and walking two batters to load the bases before handing the ball over to Jovani Moran. Moran would allow two of the inherited runners to score, both on walks. Gray was still in line for the win until the bullpen gave away the lead for good in the seventh. The 33-year-old still has yet to allow more than three runs in a start so far this season but remains winless in May after going 4-0 last month. He's at a 1.82 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 66:21 K:BB over 54.1 innings and tentatively lines up for a start to begin next week in Houston.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Stumbles Wednesday

    Gray did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over four innings against the Dodgers. He struck out four.

    It certainly could've been worse for Gray, as he allowed just two runs despite allowing eight batters to reach safely. Still, he made it through only four innings, as he was forced to spend 84 pitches. It's only the second time this season Gray has allowed more than one run in a start. The 33-year-old right-hander is 4-0 with a league-leading 1.64 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 60:19 K:BB through nine starts this year.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Strikes out nine in no-decision

    Gray allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine over 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Cubs on Friday.

    Gray wasn't able to pitch very deep into the game, throwing 57 of 94 pitches for strikes. It was still a solid bounce-back effort after he allowed multiple runs for the first time all season in his start versus Cleveland last Saturday. The right-hander now has a 1.39 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 56:16 K:BB through 45.1 innings over eight starts this season. He's projected for a tough road start versus the Dodgers next week.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: First non-stellar start

    Gray did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks over five innings against the Guardians. He struck out six in Minnesota's loss.

    It was Gray's worst outing of the season as he gave up three runs in the fourth inning after giving up just three runs over his first six starts. His ERA increased to 1.35, which shows how dominant he's been so far. Gray's next start is expected to be Friday at home against the Cubs.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Continues excellence in win

    Gray improved to 4-0 after allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out seven in an 8-4 win over the Royals on Sunday.

    Gray capped off April with another masterful performance. He tossed five shutout innings before the Royals finally got a run across in the sixth. The 33-year-old has now thrown at least five innings and allowed one run or fewer in each of his six starts this season, and his 0.77 ERA currently leads Major League Baseball among all pitchers with at least 25 innings thrown. Gray has been a fantasy star over the first month of the year and will look to keep things rolling in a divisional matchup against the Guardians next weekend.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Dominates Yankees in victory

    Gray (3-0) allowed three hits and two walks over seven shutout frames Monday, striking out eight and earning a win against the Yankees.

    Gray rolled through the Yankees with ease Monday. He coughed up just one extra-base hit and never faced much of a threat while snagging his third win. His season-high 18 whiffs helped improve his K:BB to 34:11 across 29 frames. Gray has allowed fewer than two runs in each of his first five starts, resulting in an outstanding 0.64 ERA. He'll look to continue the hot streak in his next outing, which is projected to be at home against the Royals.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Settles for no-decision Tuesday

    Gray allowed one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings Tuesday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Gray was tested early. He gave up consecutive doubles to begin the game but was able to strand two runners in scoring position and limit the damage. He worked his way out of some more trouble in the second after striking out Justin Turner with the bases loaded. He needed 54 pitches to get through the first two frames but settled in thereafter and coasted through the next three innings without much issue. After Tuesday's outing, Gray now sits third in Major League Baseball with a 0.82 ERA to go with a 1.18 WHIP and a 26:9 K:BB over 22 innings. He's projected to be in a favorable spot at home against the Nationals to end the week.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Stays hot, earns second win

    Gray (2-0) earned the win Wednesday against the White Sox, allowing zero runs off three hits over five innings while walking two batters and striking out five.

    Chalk up another impressive start for the 33-year-old veteran, who has now allowed just one earned run through his first 17 innings on the mound and boasts a 19:7 K:BB ratio. While Wednesday's start certainly wasn't as impressive as his 13-strikeout performance Friday against Houston, Gray has yet to show signs of slowing down through three starts.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Career-high 13 strikeouts

    Gray did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk over seven frames during a 3-2 win over the Astros in 10 innings. He struck out 13.

    Aside from an RBI single by Alex Bregman in the third, Gray was nearly untouchable as he cruised through seven strong frames and struck out a career-high 13 batters. However, it wasn't enough for the veteran right-hander to pull out a win, as the Twins offense was stymied by Jose Urquidy. Through two starts, Gray has looked as sharp as ever, surrendering just seven hits, five walks and one run over 12 innings.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Next start pushed back

    Gray's next start will come Friday against the Astros after Thursday's game was postponed due to impending inclement weather.

    The weather Thursday in Minneapolis doesn't look promising, so the Twins have opted to go ahead and push back their home opener a day. Gray and Jose Urquidy will now be matched up Friday.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Five scoreless in victory

    Gray (1-0) allowed three hits and four walks while striking out one over five scoreless innings, earning the win Saturday over the Royals.

    Gray kept the Kansas City lineup off-balance through the majority of the outing, and 52 of his 83 pitches ended up landing in the strike zone. It was far from a dominant effort, but it's tough to complain about five scoreless frames in a season debut. Gray's projected to face off against the Astros next week in a much tougher matchup on paper.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Looks sharp this spring

    Gray threw three scoreless innings with four strikeouts and no walks or hits in Thursday's spring game against the Dominican Republic WBC team. Gray says he's ahead of last season with his conditioning, when his offseason ramp-up was disrupted by the lockout, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. "I was continuously fighting my body," Gray said about his 2022 campaign. "You're just playing a constant catch-up game throughout the season."

    Gray has give up no earned runs (three unearned) in 4.2 innings this spring with seven strikeouts and no walks. He looks in top form early in the spring, and Wednesday's outing was impressive against a stacked DR lineup. Gray averaged just 4.96 innings per start last season, with the Twins rarely allowing him to go deep into games, so improved conditioning may bode well for his chances of delivering longer outings and quality starts this year.
