Jon Gray Strikes Out Nine in Tough-Luck Loss

Jon Gray's solid outing was wasted in a 1-0 loss to the Athletics on Thursday where he gave up one run in five innings with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact:

Gray, who now holds a 4.38 ERA and a concerning 1.78 WHIP over his first three starts of the season, dazzled with nine strikeouts over five innings, demonstrating his ability to miss bats at an impressive rate. The loss drops him to 0-1 on the season, but the strikeout numbers and team context are silver linings. Fantasy managers should be encouraged by the strikeouts and hope for better run support in future outings, but the high WHIP and FIP of 4.77 are red flags that can't be ignored. Gray is 28% rostered according to FantasyPros and is probably best as a streamer throughout the season.
