Each team has a cap on what they can spend, so signing a senior like him will allow them to spend more somewhere else, as opposed to a junior or HS player that has leverage and can ask for a higher bonus. His age really hurts his prospect chances, he will be 23 before the season ends, yet he will probably finish the year in a rookie league playing against kids years younger than him. The top rated SEC hitter is Hunter Renfroe, who will go in the first round

I’d be shocked if he dropped to the Bucs and I expect him to go to either Astros at #1 or Cubs at #2. This was probably his worst outing that I have written about, which says a lot since it wasn’t horrible by any means. His second best pitch, which some say has a chance to be as good as his fastball, is his slider. That is probably what you saw

Gray definitely has the big fast ball. He hit 99mph twice and sat 96 97 all night. Wvu had no problem squaring his fast ball up though and their lineup is not exactly murderers row. Not really sure what his off speed pitch was but it was 86 to 88mph tonight and got a few swing and misses. If this wasnt his best stuff, I’d sure like to see it. Any chance he drops to the buccos?
