Sonny Gray was disrespected by SDS this year. Despite having arguably the best season of his career, SDS didn't even bump Gray's Live series up to diamond. The final upgrade he got was up to an 82 overall. Gray finished second in Cy Young voting, but did not get a Finest card. His division rival, Tarik Skubal got a 2023 Finest card, and only pitched 80 innings.

Gray's best card was a 98 overall found in the August Monthly Awards program. The only positive this card had was its 120 clutch. He had just 105 hits/9, and a sub-100 K/9 at 83. He did locate well with 100 walks/9 and 92 control, but this was the best it got for Sonny Gray in MLB The Show 23. The only redeeming factor of Gray's 98 Monthly Awards card was his 120 pitching clutch.

This has to be the first time in MLB The Show history they did not give a Finest card to a major award finalist, such as the Cy Young Award. How Gray did not get a 99 overall card, let alone never even get his Live series card to Diamond, is beyond me.
