May Through July, 2015
Kane County Cougars (Low A, D-backs)
40 - Fourth Outfielder
Above average bat speed; linear swing path; some pre-swing noise; slight hitch with the swing; gets hands going late; moderate barrel control; mild load; swing gets unbalanced against off-speed; shows ability to use all fields.
40 raw power, 20 in-game; minimal strength; gap-oriented power game; minimal over-the-fence power.
Consistently in the 4.15 range to first; fluid athlete with a second gear; ability to read pitchers is still developing but has shown progress; will be a factor on offense and defense.
Covers a lot of ground; reads ball very well off the bat; takes proper and efficient routes to flyballs; cuts off balls in the gap.
Above average arm strength; plus accuracy; ball carries.
Drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 6th round of the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft from Faulkner State College (Bay Minette, AL).
Colin Bray's glove will earn him some major league playing time as a 4th outfielder. His ability to read the ball and the jumps he gets meld with his athleticism and allows him to cover a lot of real estate out in center field. Bray has enough arm for center as well. His hit tool precludes him from a starter's role but Bray can be a contributor as a fourth outfielder.
