Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Natural right handed hitter but the swing looks better from the left side. Mechanics get choppy from the right side. Average bat speed, displays solid average feel for the barrel, makes solid contact and has solid average plate coverage. Stings the ball, uses the whole field, good up-the-middle approach.
Power 40 Raw power is below average, linear swing with a gap approach. Bat speed isn't conducive to big power.
Baserunning/Speed 60 7.62 home to first on a hustle double. Quick player, fluid athlete, good speed.
Glove 50 Limited view of the glove, has the athleticism to play center, the few reads I did see were average.
Arm 45 Fringe average arm strength, below average carry on the ball, throws were on line.

Bray missed most of 2014 with an injury that limited him to 32 plate appearances in 2014. The upside isn’t extreme but Bray can be a useful player at the highest level. Even though the profile is absent over the fence power he has speed and a feel for hitting. He’s not a starter but he can do very well as a 4th outfielder.
