Quick-twitch athlete; smaller frame with more strength than you’d expect; larger lower half for his body; well-conditioned.
3x in June
Carolina Mudcats (High A, Braves)
Can get upset with himself at times, but seems like a hard worker.
50; Major-League Regular
Can get off balance; above-average bat speed, swings out of his shoes at times, some swing and miss, swing can get long, loose hands, potential for consistent, hard contact oppo way, potential quality spray hitter, athleticism to project above-average barrel control, struggles keeping weight back on breaking balls, aggressive approach hurts his overall hit tool; projects to grow into average utility.
Above-average raw power, strength to drive in small frame, leverage allows for solid loft, effort needed for home runs, potential swing and miss problems when aiming for power, better gap power; projects to average game utility at maturity.
Clocked 4.07, aggressive mentality can lead to mistakes, plus burst on bases.
Speed yields plus range, takes inefficient routes at times, could stand to be more assertive, capable of making flash plays that not many outfielders cannot, inconsistencies leave some doubt whether he’s a long-term center fielder, but should play a capable center field at maturity.
Average arm strength, gets enough velo/carry to hit cutoff men with consistency.
Ray grades out as average in everything besides his speed, which makes gives him the ceiling of a major-league regular. He’s likely to reach that ceiling given that his tools are rather developed at 22 years old, but he just doesn’t have the pop in his bat or enough barrel control to grade out as an above-average hitter or power threat. He’s an athletic outfielder who profiles in left or center and should be able to hit enough to keep a regular spot on a potential playoff team.
