Will your favorite team deal for Sonny Gray before the Trade Deadline?
The non-waiver Trade Deadline is a crazy time of year. With rumors flying and players changing teams, it can be hard to keep up with everything. The Cespedes Family BBQ boys are here to help you stay on top of it all. See also: the Red Sox third base situation, the Royals, Yonder Alonso , Zack Cozart , the Dodgers, the Orioles, the reliever market and the Mets outfield.
So far during his relatively brief MLB career, Athletics starter Sonny Gray has shown glimpses of front-line ace potential. But with the A's out of postseason contention this season, Sonny and his fantastic name have been bandied about in trade talks.
The Vandy alum and certified master wine sommelier (that's fake, I made that up) has two years of team control left and won't be a free agent until after the 2019 season. With starting pitching at a premium this Deadline season, it seems like the A's could get quite the haul for Mr. Gray, who now sounds like a "Resovoir Dogs" character. But where exactly might Gray end up?
We asked our Trade Deadline expert Peter Pachinko for the inside scoop in the video above. His response will surprise you.
