Reds finalizing trade for Yankees RHP Sonny Gray


Gray, 29, is under contract with the Yankees for 2019, and is scheduled to make $7.5 million on his current deal.

Gray has been up and down since his break out season with the A's in 2015, when he made the AL All-Star team, and finished third in Cy Young voting while posting a 2.73 ERA and 1.08 WHIP.

Reports came out last night that a trade between the Yankees and Reds was all but a done deal.

The Cincinnati Reds are working hard to beef up their roster for the upcoming season. Signing Gray to an extension would help solidify the rotation beyond just 2019. Gray posted a ghastly 6.98 ERA at home in 2018 compared to a 3.17 ERA on the road, and while there's surely more at play in those splits than the surface-level numbers exhibit, the contrast between the two numbers is unequivocally jarring.

Great American is not entirely deserving of its reputation for being extremely hitter-friendly - over the past five seasons, it averaged a ranking of 11th in park factor, a metric that measures the rate of stats at home against the.

There is a strong contingent of Reds fans who don't like the proposed move.

The Cincinnati Reds have a lot of talented infielders in their farm system.

All it takes is a few years to grow for a player to become one of the best in baseball, and adding some high-risk options could be a solid grab for general manager Brian Cashman. The Reds still have Nick Senzel (No. 1), Jonathan India (No. 4), Jose Israel Garcia (No. 13), Alfredo Rodriguez (No. 20), and Jonathan Willems (No. 26) among their top Minor League prospects.
