Yankees MLB trade rumors: Sonny Gray to Reds waiting
Sonny Gray heads closer to home as disappointing stint with Yankees ends with trade to the Reds
25 January, 2019, 18:39
After being traded to NY during the 2017 season, Gray saw a significant drop-off in production, particularly during the 2018 season when he went 11-9 with a 4.90 ERA.
Still, the trades are interesting because they signal Cincinnati is basically all-in for a longshot attempt at contending in 2019.
The Reds are betting that Gray's ability to pitch well away from The Stadium is cause for optimism.
Here's how the sides made out. That essentially makes the Gray deal a three-way trade: Gray from New York to Cincinnati, Stowers from Seattle to New York, a draft pick from Cincinnati to New York, and Long from Cincinnati to Seattle. Unfortunately for the Bombers, it just didn't work out that way. Gray was a vital piece of their rotation that series when he started Game 2 and also Game 5. Maybe he wasn't an ace, but behind Severino, the assumption was that Gray would flourish.
Gray's agent Bo McKinnis and Reds don't have extension yet and have until day's end Monday to get one done.
Coming off a 67-95 season - their fifth consecutive losing season - the Reds are determined to field a more competitive ballclub in 2019. But the club won't need to do that with Josh Stowers.
The Yankees shipped the right-hander to the Reds on Monday along with 22-year-old left-hander Reiver Sanmartin, who finished last season with Double-A Trenton, in exchange for a package that included minor league second baseman Shed Long and Cincinnati's compensatory pick in this year's draft, expected to be the 36th overall, a source confirmed to The Post.

Gray's struggles were even more pronounced at home in Yankee Stadium where he went just 4-4 with a 6.98 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP in 15 games, 11 starts, and pitched only 59 1/3 innings while striking out 45 and walking 35.
The hype surrounding the Yankees going into 2018 was an all-time high, as they were projected to reach and win the World Series with their offseason additions. Those numbers have all been trending upward in the last three seasons, as well.
Sonny Gray has managed only a 15-16 record since being traded to the Yankees in 2017. Cincinnati's pitching coach, Derek Johnson, was Gray's pitching coach at Vanderbilt.
The Yankees could still add another starter, either through another trade or free agency. Also locking up Gray to a fairly team friendly contract is wise, as well. Gray and the Yankees settled on a $7.5 million, one-year contract on January 11 that avoided salary arbitration.
