The Oakland A’s have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Sonny Gray on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21st due to a strained right trapezius muscle. Gray has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 3-5 with a 6.19 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. He has given up 55 hits (8 homers) and 24 walks while whiffing 41 batters in his first 48 innings, so he has getting hit hard this year. He also has a Major League leading 9 wild pitches, which isn’t like him. The A’s have called up 26-year old lefty reliever Daniel Coulombe to replace Gray on the pitching staff for now. He pitched in 1 game (out of the pen) for the A’s earlier this year and he was 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP. He has now pitched in 10 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the A’s and he is 0-0 with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. The A’s hope that Gray won’t be out too long.
