The Oakland A's season is off to a rocky start. Earlier on Opening Day, the A's placed fifth starter Felix Doubront on the DL with a sprained left elbow. Then six hours before first pitch, the A's announced that ace Sonny Gray will miss his Opening Day start due to food poisoning. Number two starter Rich Hill will get the start instead. Hill, a lefty who struggled this spring, will have to match-up against a right-handed heavy power line-up for the Chicago White Sox. It isn't clear whether Gray will start on Tuesday or if he will be pushed back to later in the week.
