Sonny Gray (SP, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add Immediately

ANALYSIS: Sonny Gray was a highly touted A's prospect, and has done nothing but impress during his time in the majors. Sporting a filthy arsenal, and nasty curveball, Gray has racked up 20 Ks versus just 5 BBs over 18 IP - to go along with a pristine 1.00 ERA and 0.83 WHIP. He plays in a great pitchers park, and on a good team - so he will remain a viable pitcher down the fantasy stretch run. Make sure to get him active against Seattle in his next start, but avoid him in tough AL matchups like Detroit. He's still a rookie who may hit some bumps in the road, but he will help your fantasy team down the stretch in 2013 - and will be an extremely viable fantasy pitcher in 2014 as well.
