No Announcement Yet From A’s On Game 5 Starter

As_Bartolo_Colon_1Bartolo Colon finished second in the AL in wins and ERA this year, but there’s increasing speculation that the A’s may pick Sonny Gray over him to make the Game 5 start against the Tigers.

Colon took the loss in Game 1 of the ALDS after giving up three runs in six innings, but it was hardly a bad outing. All three runs came in the first, and his defense didn’t help him out much in the frame.

Of course, Gray was terrific in Game 2, striking out nine over eight scoreless innings in what was just his 11th big-league start.
