Biography Timeline


In addition to his success on the mound, he also played quarterback for Smyrna's football team, guiding them to back-to-back 5A State titles in 2006 and 2007. He was voted Gatorade Player of the Year by The Tennessean in 2007 and 2008 for his overall athletic success.


As a freshman, he pitched and played left field and was named Freshman of the Year in District 9AAA. As a sophomore, he suffered injuries and saw limited action during the season. As a junior, he led his team to the 2007 State Tournament with an 11–2 win-loss record and a 0.95 earned run average (ERA). This earned him a nod for the AFLAC All-American High School Baseball Classic, and a nomination for National Player of the Year (which Tim Melville ultimately won). As a senior, he went 4–0 with a 0.79 ERA. However, he was injured in a district game in April 2008 that ended his season. He also excelled at the plate, batting over .500 his last two seasons at Smyrna, but instead opted to pitch in college.

Having already made a verbal commitment to Vanderbilt University before Smyrna's state tournament run, he was drafted in the 27th round by the Chicago Cubs in the 2008 MLB Draft. He did not sign with the team.


As a freshman for the Vanderbilt Commodores baseball team, he began as a relief pitcher, earning four saves before moving to a starter's role late in the season. He posted a 4.30 ERA, which he would improve upon in the next two years. He was designated as the ace of Vanderbilt's pitching staff in 2010 and 2011. In 2010, he went 10–5 with a 3.48 ERA, and led the team in strikeouts (113). Gray's junior year was his most successful, as he went 12–4 with a 2.43 ERA and 132 strikeouts. He also helped Vanderbilt earn their first-ever College World Series berth, making it to the semifinals and losing to national runner-up Florida.


Gray was selected 18th overall by the Oakland Athletics in the 2011 MLB Draft. He elected to forgo his senior year at Vanderbilt, and signed with Oakland for a $1.54 million signing bonus. After he signed, the Athletics assigned Gray to the Midland RockHounds of the Class AA Texas League. The next year, Gray began his season with Midland. There, he posted a 4.14 ERA before being promoted to the Sacramento River Cats of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League, where he struggled in his only start.


On July 10, 2013, Gray was called up to replace Dan Straily, who had been optioned to Triple-A. He made his first major league appearance out of the bullpen, in relief of Jerry Blevins, against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Pittsburgh. Gray pitched two innings, tallying three strikeouts and allowing a single hit. He allowed neither a run nor a walk. Gray made a second relief appearance nine days later against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim but was then sent back down to the minors.


Gray failed to improve on his successful 2015 season, suffering multiple setbacks that twice landed him on the disabled list. He finished the season with a 5–11 record with a 5.69 ERA.


Gray and his wife Jessica were married on November 12, 2016. The couple have two sons.


On July 31, 2017, the Oakland Athletics traded Gray to the New York Yankees in exchange for Dustin Fowler, Jorge Mateo, and James Kaprielian. The Yankees would advance to the ALCS after overcoming a 2–0 series deficit against the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS. New York would go on to lose the ALCS in 7 games to the eventual World Series champion Houston Astros.


Gray struggled with his starts throughout his tenure as a starter in 2018, eventually losing his rotation spot to newly acquired teammate Lance Lynn after giving up seven runs in 2 ⁄3 innings to the Baltimore Orioles on August 1. Although his road ERA was a respectable 3.62, his ERA at Yankee Stadium was inflated at 7.71 and his total record as a Yankee prior to his demotion to the bullpen was 12–15 and a 4.85 ERA.


On January 21, 2019, the Yankees traded Gray and Reiver Sanmartin to the Cincinnati Reds for Shed Long and a competitive balance draft pick in the 2019 MLB draft. The trade reunites him with pitching coach Derek Johnson, his head coach in Vanderbilt, and catching partner Curt Casali. Gray signed a three-year contract extension with the Reds prior to the trade. The Yankees then traded Long to the Seattle Mariners for Josh Stowers. After a relatively disappointing tenure with the Yankees, Gray bounced back his first year with the Reds. Going 11-8 with a 2.87 ERA, 1.084 WHIP, and a career best 10.5 K/9, Gray placed 7th in the NL CY Young Award voting. Also, just days before the All-Star Game, Gray was named a replacement for Max Scherzer. This was Gray's second All-Star nomination and first since 2015.


In 2020, he was 5–3 with a 3.70 ERA. He led the NL in wild pitches, with seven.

Family Life

Sonny's parents are named Cindy and Jesse; his father died in a car accident while Sonny was still in high school.
