Going Deep: Analyzing the Prospects in the 3-Way Sonny Gray Trade

Going Deep: Analyzing the Prospects in the 3-Way Sonny Gray Trade

A person familiar with the negotiations tells the Associated Press that pitcher Sonny Gray has agreed to a contract with Cincinnati adding $30.5 million from 2020 to 2022, a deal that allows the New York Yankees to complete his trade to the Reds.

The extension that the trade hinges upon is for three years and is worth $30.5 million and includes a $12 million team option for 2023, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Surely the fine people of Cincinnati can help point Gray in the right direction here, or at least give the righty some tips on how to better describe a "chili thing".

Shed Long is the most notable piece, going from Cincinnati to Seattle.

Long, 23, hit.261 with 12 home runs and 19 stolen bases in Double-A previous year.

The Reds spent the last three seasons relying on young starters to emerge, but a lot of them struggled mightily. That included 11 home runs in 59.1 innings of work.

He's had some tough injuries in the last couple of years. "Like, I can barely read her serve, so it's very hard for me", she said. World No 2 Nadal won 6-2 6-4 6-0 and will vie for the Grand Slam title against either Novak Djokovic or Lucas Pouille .

"Ultimately, you want to play somewhere where you're wanted".

This trade is nice for Long's value simply from a depth perspective.

Sonny Gray knows what he's getting into even before he arrives in Cincinnati. The 2018 ETA is pushed back just a bit, but scouting reports suggest that Long's ability to make contact and hit for power from the left side are all legitimate, and he should be a major league player sooner rather than later. You would think that Gray's value was low, but they nearly had Shed Long a solid young prospect, but then they improved even more snagging Josh Stowers. It's basically an exchange of prospects between the two teams. The center fielder hit.260 with a.380 OBP with the single-A Everett AquaSox in 58 games with five homers, 28 RBI, and 20 steals.

Gray, who headlined the Reds' news release about the pair of acquisitions, was a 2015 American League All-Star and a hot ticket for the Yankees when they acquired him in 2017.

Gray just signed a one-year, $7.5 million deal to avoid arbitration, and he'll be a free agent after the 2019 season. He posted a 4.90 ERA and a 2.16 strikeout-to-walk ratio - the worst mark of his career - with the Yankees in 2018. There's not a ton of data out there on Sanmartin, but he is a soft-tossing left-hander who sits around 90-91 and uses a three-pitch mix with an outstanding command of the strike zone.
