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.
