Analysis: The 27-year-old Gray was extended an invitation despite a rocky 2016 season. After winning 14 games in each of the previous two seasons, Gray stumbled to a 5-11 mark with a 5.69 ERA during an injury-plagued campaign.

Analysis: The 2015 AL All-Star enters his first arbitration-eligible season seeking to bounce back from a disappointing and injury-plagued campaign. After winning 14 games in each of the previous two seasons and recording a combined 2.91 ERA over that span, Gray slipped to 5-11 with a 5.69 ERA while making just 22 starts due to forearm and back issues.
|Sep. 29 9:18 AM PT10:18 AM MT11:18 AM CT12:18 PM ET12:18 ET16:18 GMT0:18 9:18 AM MST11:18 AM EST11:48 AM VEN20:18 UAE11:18 AM CT-Gray was activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to his start. Gray, who was sidelined with a right forearm strain from Aug. 7-Sept. 27, was limited to only one inning and threw 18 pitches, 13 of them for strikes. He gave up one hit and faced four batters in his first start since Aug. 6.
Analysis: A's manager Bob Melvin said his return made a noticeable difference in the clubhouse culture. ''That's our guy,'' Melvin said. ''It was sort of an off season for him, but he went out there and was healthy and looked like the old Sonny. Psychologically, he's good for the whole ball club.''

Analysis: Gray has not pitched in a game since Aug. 6 because of a forearm strain.
|July 27 6:39 AM PT7:39 AM MT8:39 AM CT9:39 AM ET9:39 ET13:39 GMT21:39 6:39 AM MST8:39 AM EST9:09 AM VEN17:39 UAE8:39 AM CT-Gray won for the second time in three starts Tuesday after allowing three runs over six innings against the Rangers.
Analysis: The right-hander, though, has a 6.88 ERA over those three outings while allowing five homers in 17 innings.
|July 22 12:38 PM PT1:38 PM MT2:38 PM CT3:38 PM ET15:38 ET19:38 GMT3:38 12:38 PM MST2:38 PM EST3:08 PM VEN23:38 UAE2:38 PM CT-Gray was rocked for seven runs in five innings Thursday against Tampa Bay to fall to 4-9 on the season.
Analysis: After turning in two straight solid starts, Gray turned in another dud that's been all too common during his disappointing season. Oakland's expected ace is now 1-8 with a 6.45 ERA in 14 starts since April 27.
|July 21 9:24 AM PT10:24 AM MT11:24 AM CT12:24 PM ET12:24 ET16:24 GMT0:24 9:24 AM MST11:24 AM EST11:54 AM VEN20:24 UAE11:24 AM CT-Gray snapped a career-worst seven-game losing streak in his most recent start and will hope to build on that momentum on Thursday against the Rays.
Analysis: Gray is 2-1 with a 3.11 ERA in six career starts against the Rays and 2-2 with a 7.01 ERA in five starts against the Eastern Division this year.
|July 17 12:33 PM PT1:33 PM MT2:33 PM CT3:33 PM ET15:33 ET19:33 GMT3:33 12:33 PM MST2:33 PM EST3:03 PM VEN23:33 UAE2:33 PM CT-Gray allowed three runs over six innings in Saturday's 5-4 win over Toronto. He struck out four, but gave up three walks and three home runs.
Analysis: Gray has limited opponents to three runs or less in six of his last eight starts. Still, he's a disappointing 4-8 with a 5.12 ERA on the season.
|July 7 7:33 AM PT8:33 AM MT9:33 AM CT10:33 AM ET10:33 ET14:33 GMT22:33 7:33 AM MST9:33 AM EST10:03 AM VEN18:33 UAE9:33 AM CT-Gray bounced back Wednesday by allowing one run over six innings in a 4-0 loss to the A's.
Analysis: Gray has pitched better since the start of June, limiting opponents to two runs or less in five of his last seven starts. He's still having a terribly disappointing season for fantasy owners.
|July 2 11:07 AM PT12:07 PM MT1:07 PM CT2:07 PM ET14:07 ET18:07 GMT2:07 11:07 AM MST1:07 PM EST1:37 PM VEN22:07 UAE1:07 PM CT-Gray took a step back Friday, allowing seven runs over six innings in a 7-3 loss to the Pirates.
Analysis: Gray had posted a 3.23 ERA over his previous five starts. He simply isn't a fantasy option during this surprisingly disappointing season.

|June 22 11:00 PM PT12:00 AM MT1:00 AM CT2:00 AM ET2:00 ET6:00 GMT14:00 11:00 PM MST1:00 AM EST1:30 AM VEN10:00 UAE1:00 AM CT-Gray allowed one earned run and struck out seven in six innings while not factoring in the decision of Tuesday's 5-3 win over Milwaukee.
Analysis: Though Gray hasn't won since April 22, he's allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his four June starts.
|June 16 11:07 AM PT12:07 PM MT1:07 PM CT2:07 PM ET14:07 ET18:07 GMT2:07 11:07 AM MST1:07 PM EST1:37 PM VEN22:07 UAE1:07 PM CT-Gray couldn't build on back-to-back solid outings Wednesday when he gave up five runs over six innings in a 7-5 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Gray had surrendered three runs over 12 2/3 innings in his previous two starts. The right-hander is 3-6 with a 5.54 ERA this season after going 14-7 with a 2.73 mark a year ago.
|June 11 12:09 PM PT1:09 PM MT2:09 PM CT3:09 PM ET15:09 ET19:09 GMT3:09 12:09 PM MST2:09 PM EST2:39 PM VEN23:09 UAE2:09 PM CT-Gray was the tough-luck loser Friday when he allowed two runs and five hits over 7 2/3 innings in a 2-1 loss at Cincinnati.
Analysis: Since going 0-4 with a 10.38 ERA over a five-start stretch, the right-hander has given up three runs over 12 2/3 innings in his last two. However, he's been given just three runs by the offense in those outings.
|May 22 12:39 PM PT1:39 PM MT2:39 PM CT3:39 PM ET15:39 ET19:39 GMT3:39 12:39 PM MST2:39 PM EST3:09 PM VEN23:39 UAE2:39 PM CT-Oakland has placed the struggling Gray on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right trapezius muscle.
Analysis: Gray received an anti-inflammatory shot in his shoulder following Friday's start against the Yankees but said his condition did not improve. The 2015 All-Star's season has been a disaster thus far, as he's 3-5 with a 6.19 ERA in nine starts and has posted a wretched 10.38 ERA over his last five.
|May 21 12:34 PM PT1:34 PM MT2:34 PM CT3:34 PM ET15:34 ET19:34 GMT3:34 12:34 PM MST2:34 PM EST3:04 PM VEN23:34 UAE2:34 PM CT-Gray was roughed up again Friday, this time by the Yankees.
Analysis: The 2015 All-Star was tagged for five runs and walked four batters while lasting just 3 1/3 innings of Oakland's 8-3 loss. One of the biggest early fantasy disappointments, Gray now owns a 6.19 ERA and has been rocked for 25 earned runs and a .337 average in 21 2/3 innings over his past five outings.
|Apr. 28 2:46 PM PT3:46 PM MT4:46 PM CT5:46 PM ET17:46 ET21:46 GMT5:46 2:46 PM MST4:46 PM EST5:16 PM VEN1:46 UAE (+1)4:46 PM CT-Gray fell to 3-2 on Wednesday.
Analysis: Gray lasted only two innings in the shortest start of his big league career. He allowed four runs, two hits and four walks, throwing 65 pitches. "Tonight, I didn't have anything," he said. "I don't remember a start like this, where every breaking ball I threw was awful and I couldn't locate anything."
|Apr. 7 2:31 PM PT3:31 PM MT4:31 PM CT5:31 PM ET17:31 ET21:31 GMT5:31 2:31 PM MST4:31 PM EST5:01 PM VEN1:31 UAE (+1)4:31 PM CT-It was worth the wait for Gray owners Wednesday when the Oakland ace allowed one run and three hits over seven innings of a 2-1 win over the White Sox.
Analysis: Gray had been scratched from his opening day start because of food poisoning.
|Apr. 4 2:25 PM PT3:25 PM MT4:25 PM CT5:25 PM ET17:25 ET21:25 GMT5:25 2:25 PM MST4:25 PM EST4:55 PM VEN1:25 UAE (+1)4:25 PM CT-Gray has been scratched from his opening day start because of food poisoning.
