College Commitment Leads Gray On 26-Round Slide

And Sonny Gray arrives right on cue. The Cubs decided to take the standout righthander in the 27th-round. Gray has one of the best fastbal’s in this draft and one of the best curve balls in the draft, but his lack of size (he’s generously listed at 6-feet tall) and with a strong commitment to Vanderbilt, Gray slid 26 rounds from where he should have been drafted, judging on talent alone.
