Gray eager for start in ALDS tonight in Cleveland

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.
