The first day Sonny Gray stepped into the Yankees’ clubhouse, he could feel it. The expectation of getting to the postseason with this group and the right-hander being an important part of it.
“My first day in New York, I got that vibe,” said Gray, who was tabbed on Wednesday to get the ball for Game 1 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan on Thursday at Progressive Field. “And now, we’re here, and we’re ready to go.”
Gray, the Yankees’ big acquisition at the non-waiver Trade Deadline, will square off against Tribe righty Trevor Bauer in the opener of the best-of-five set.
