Full Name: Sonny Douglas Gray
Born: 11/7/1989 in Nashville, TN
Sonny Gray just completed his first full season on Major League Baseball and quickly became one of the Oakland A’s top pitchers. He is mainly known for his amazing fastball with his smaller body size.
In this video, I break down Sonny Gray’s pitching mechanics listing the pros and cons from his pitching delivery. He is a great example of a very efficient high velocity pitcher. He is able to take his small frame and produce a high level of pitching velocity using his elite athleticism and an impressive set of pitching mechanics. If you would like to learn how he is able to do this biomechanically then checkout this video analysis on Sonny Gray’s pitching mechanics.

Sonny Gray Pitching Mechanics Con
May not be shocking to most but his negatives in his pitching mechanics are non-existent. Did find some close to being negative factors but it could be related to the poor quality of footage I was using to record the biomechanics.
