The long-rumored trade of Sonny Gray to the Reds came through on Monday, with Gray and minor league reliever Reiver Sanmartin going to Cincinnati, infielder Shed Long going to the Seattle Mariners and outfielder Josh Stowers and a 2019 competitive balance pick (from the Reds) going to the New York Yankees. It’s a puzzling deal for the Reds, it adds some value for the Yankees in moving a player they didn’t want and I’m not really sure why the Mariners are here, unless Jerry Dipoto was bored.

Gray’s tenure in New York was a disaster, but the Reds are hoping that reuniting him with his college pitching coach Derek Johnson — who came over from the Milwaukee Brewers and was with Gray at Vanderbilt — will help Gray rediscover his form.
