The trade market for Sonny Gray is still active.
According to MLB.com, the Brewers remain in talks with the Yankees for the 2015 American League All-Star.

Gray is coming off of one of the worst years of his career as he posted an 11-9 record with a 4.90 ERA while taking a demotion to the bullpen, but the Brewers really could use some starting pitching. Gray’s splits are encouraging as well. He went 7-5 with a 3.17 ERA away from Yankee Stadium which surrendered the sixth most runs and home runs per game in MLB last season.
Milwaukee has a lot of options for its rotation for next season, but some are young and unproven (Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes), others are coming off of injuries (Jimmy Nelson, Zach Davies) and others are simply trying to find some consistency. At this point, none have been proven to be aces who have won consistently in the postseason.
As much flack as Gray has caught since he was dealt to the Yankees he has been a very good pitcher in the postseason in his career and even went pitch for pitch with Justin Verlander one season.
Gray has posted a career 2.95 ERA in four postseason starts while striking out a little less than a batter an inning.
