The A's were forced to scratch their ace from his Opening Day start, because of food poisoning. Instead, Rich Hill got the start for Oakland.

Following the game on Monday, A's manager Bob Melvin announced that Chris Bassitt would take the hill on Tuesday, and Gray would finally make his season debut on Wednesday. If Gray would have been able to go, it would have been his third straight Opening Day start, making him the first A's player to accomplish that feat since Dave Stewart between 1988-1992.
