Sonny Gray

Sonny Gray trade rumors have been rumbling for almost five years at this point. He has already been traded twice, but ever since he landed and signed an extension with Cincinnati; he has seemed to return to his potential. He is under contract until at least 2022, having a club option for the 2023 MLB season.

Gray, 31, is only due $10 million over each of the next two seasons and would be due to make $12 million in 2023 if his option were to be picked up.

He has a career 3.54 ERA. However, since he joined the Reds in 2019, in 231.1 innings, he has a 3.07 ERA , 1.115 WHIP, and 277 strikeouts.

He is back to being a top of the rotation pitchers and would make an impact on any team. He would add great rotation depth and be able to eat a lot of innings. Gray would cost a little bit, but the Reds are also looking to shed payroll and add to their farm system.

Gray is another play that would interest San Diego, as well as Toronto. Any team looking for more starting pitchers should get on the phone with the Reds and try to acquire Gray.
