Brewers Acquire Sonny Gray

The Sonny Gray market is expected to move fairly soon. There are a number of teams interested and the Yankees are ready to move on from Gray. He’s been a failed acquisition for New York, and it appears it’s just the atmosphere there that has caused his struggles.

Gray had a 6.98 ERA in Yankee Stadium in 2018, but had a 3.17 ERA everywhere else. He didn’t struggle with the short porch in right, allowing only 11 home runs in New York and only 14 total on the season.

Gray had the appearance of being an ace from 2014-15 with Oakland, but struggled in 2016 and was having a strong bounceback season in 2017 before being sent to the Yankees.

Given his recent poor performance, Gray is a buy-low target if there ever was one. He’s projected to earn only $9+ million in his final year of arbitration, but he has ace-level stuff.

The Milwaukee Brewers have also reportedly been in talks with the Yankees about Gray, making a trade to the Cream City all the more likely during the Winter Meetings.

A trade return of someone like Trent Grisham or Carlos Herrera could be enough to entice the Yankees into sending Gray to the Brewers.

With all the noise on Gray recently, he’s probably the most likely to get traded during the Winter Meetings of the three names listed. While other trades could materialize, there should be a lot of activity during these meetings, and these are just three possible deals the Milwaukee Brewers could make next week.
