Well, finally Sonny Gray has been traded, and it was to the Yankees. He’s a pretty good starter, 6-5 3.43 ERA and 94 SO’s on the season.
The Yankees needed starting pitching. Despite the need for another starter, the Yankees still have the 6th best pitching staff in the majors.
Right before this trade, the yanks weren’t playing well. This is the type of deadline move that re-energizes clubs.
Sonny Gray also has lot of playoff pitching experience. He doesn’t choke in the moment like David Price.
His numbers suggest he’s a #3 starter. But, this move could plateau the Yankees to a Division title.
