Twins acquire starting pitcher Sonny Gray for potential Chase Petty – Twin Cities

FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Twins took a step to increase their pitching rotation on Sunday afternoon, trading prospective Chase Petty to the Cincinnati Reds for starter Sonny Gray.

Gray, who has a career earned run average of 3.61, started in 26 games last year and posted a 4.19 ERA. He is a two-time All-Star.

The twins also received minor league pitcher Francis Peguero, 24, in trade.

Tackling the starting rotation has been the Twins’ biggest need this offseason. The Twins added Dylan Bundy to the rotation before the lockout.

18-year-old Petty was the Twins’ first-round draft pick last year and finished 26th overall. The hard-hitting right-hander – Petty hit 100mph by the age of 17 – appeared in two games for the FCL Twins last season.
