Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics will call up Sonny Gray from Triple-A Sacramento.
Gray is expected to be used in relief for the time being, but he could eventually get a shot to start. The former first-round pick has bounced back from a rough 2012 season to post a 2.81 ERA and 107/34 K/BB ratio over 102 1/3 Triple-A innings this season.

this season in AAA he has 16 starts, 2.81 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 2.99 BB/9, 9.41 K/9.
last season in AA he had 26 starts, 4.14 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 3.47 BB/9, 5.90 K/9.
why such a difference? which one is he more like?
if he is pitching out of the bullpen, what are some expectations? should he be good for a high K/9?
I imagine he would be better for someone in a deep league. I'm in a 16 team league so even relievers with a high K/9 are valuable.
