Two dreadful starts late in the season severely hurt what was otherwise a strong 2020 campaign for Gray, though it was a bizarre year. His strikeout rate surpassed 30% for the first time in his career, while his walk rate jumped to 11.1%. He was also far more hittable, particularly his slider and curveball, which had been dominant pitches in 2019. But even if Gray simply repeats his 2020 season, his strikeout rate and decent ERA and WHIP should be enough to make him a borderline SP2 for fantasy leagues. Considering we've seen much more than that from him in 2019, fantasy managers should have no hesitation drafting him.

Sonny Gray continues to be center of trade talks in Cincinnati

Sonny Gray has been at the center of most of Cincinnati's trade talks this offseason, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network.

Fantasy Impact

Heyman notes that other teams have kicked the tires on players such as Eugenio Suarez but Sonny Gray has been drawing the most interest, and rightfully so. Gray is still relatively young at 31-years old and is under contract for the next two seasons at an affordable price, a little over $10 million per year. He also has a $12 million club option for 2023. He's coming off a solid 2020 in which he registered a 3.70 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 72:26 K/BB ratio over 56 innings. He would make for a welcome addition to any team looking to beef up their starting rotation.
