In 2021, Ray found out that velocity isn’t everything. There are few pitchers in the 2021 draft class who can throw harder. Ray sat 94 mph and touched 96-98 for Texas Christian. But as fast as his fastballs came in, they left just as quickly. He generated only 38 swings and misses on his fastball while giving up 11 home runs on his heater. Ray’s curveball has tight 1-to-7 break at its best and flashes above-average potential, but he has a tendency to rush his delivery and loses feel for locating it. Ray failed to retire a batter in his final two outings of the season and finished with a 6.50 ERA. Ray once looked like a potential early Day Two pick, but his inconsistency means he’ll now be on the fringe of Day Three.
