Yankees Acquire Pitcher Sonny Gray from Oakland


SPORTS- The New York Yankees today announced that they have acquired right-handed pitcher Sonny Gray and international signing bonus pool money from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for outfielder Dustin Fowler, right-handed pitcher James Kaprielian and infielder/outfielder Jorge Mateo.


Gray, 27, went 6-5 with a 3.43 ERA (97.0IP, 84H, 48R/37ER, 30BB, 94K, 8HR) in 16 starts with the Athletics this season.  He tossed at least 6.0 innings in 12 of those 16 starts and has allowed 2ER-or-fewer 10 times this season.  Over his last six outings (since June 25), he has gone 4-2 with a 1.37 ERA (39.1IP, 6ER), 36K and .164 (23-for-140) opponents' batting average, throwing at least 6.0 innings and allowing no more than 2ER in each of those six starts.

Originally selected by Oakland in the first round (18th pick overall) of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, Gray made his Major League debut with the A's in 2013. He made two postseason starts with the A’s in 2013, going 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA (13.0IP, 3ER, 12K). In 114 games (112 starts) over parts of five seasons with Oakland (2013-17), he went 44-36 with a 3.42 ERA (705.0IP, 621H, 305R/268ER, 225BB, 607K, 62HR).

He has twice won 14 games in a season (2014 and '15) and struck out a career-best 183 batters in 2014.  The Nashville, Tenn., native was named a 2015 American League All-Star and finished third in AL Cy Young Award voting that season.

Mateo, 22, has split the 2017 season with Single-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton, combining to bat .258/.318/.438 (102-for-395) with 65R, 25 doubles, 11 triples, 8HR, 37RBI and 39 stolen bases (in 49 attempts) in 99 games.  Since being promoted to Trenton on June 27, he has hit .300/.381/.525 (36-for-120) with 26R, 9 doubles, 3 triples, 4HR and 26RBI in 30 games.

The right-handed batter was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster on November 18, 2016, and entered the 2017 season tabbed by Baseball America as the Yankees' No. 4 prospect, as well as the organization's "Fastest Baserunner" and "Best Athlete."

The Santo Domingo Oeste, D.R. native was originally signed by the Yankees as a non-drafted free agent on January 28, 2012.  Over six minor league seasons, he has been successful in 221-of-275 (80.4%) of his stolen base attempts.

Kaprielian, 23, underwent "Tommy John" surgery on his right elbow on April 18, 2017.

The Southern California native was originally selected by the Yankees with the 16th overall pick in the first round of the 2015 First-Year Player Draft. He was the Yankees' highest draft pick since the club selected right-handed pitcher Matt Drews with the 13th overall pick in 1993. In eight appearances (six starts) across two minor league seasons (2015-16) with the Yankees, the right-hander was 2-2 with a 2.45 ERA (29.1IP, 8ER). He was ranked as the Yankees’ No. 5 prospect by Baseball America entering the 2017 season.

Fowler, 22, suffered a ruptured right patellar tendon in the first inning of his Major League debut with the Yankees on June 29, 2017 at Chicago-AL and underwent season-ending surgery later that night. He was placed on the Yankees’ 10-day disabled list on June 30 and transferred to the 60-day disabled list on July 1.

In 70 games at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2017, the Cadwell, Ga., native hit .293 (87-for-297) with 49R, 19 doubles, 8 triples, 13HR, 43RBI and 13SB.


Originally selected by the Yankees in the 18th round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, Fowler hit .282 (477-for-1,694) with 221R, 90 doubles, 39 triples, 39HR, 251RBI and 74SB in 421 games across five minor league seasons with the Yankees. The left-handed hitter was ranked by Baseball America as the Yankees’ No. 9 prospect entering 2017.
