    Division II Le Moyne (N.Y.) was the only school that offered Gray a scholarship. Coach Scott Cassidy liked Gray's athleticism and his quick arm and believed he had the potential to develop. Gray has rewarded Cassidey's faith by developing into the one of the best pitchers in Division II. After playing sporadically as a freshman shortstop, Gray touched 94 mph pitching in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League that summer. He split time between shortstop and closing as a sophomore, but switched to focus solely on pitching in the Cape Cod League the summer before his junior year. Gray's full-time move to the mound has paid off handsomely. He's gained 35 pounds since he arrived on campus and is now a solid 6-foot-4, 205 pounds. He dominated in his first year as a starter, going 10-0, 1.28 to rank among national leaders in ERA. He's still developing as a pitcher, but he's sitting 90-95 mph with his fastball. He has a very fast arm and fills the strike zone with above-average control for his age, even if his command still needs refinement. Gray throws his slider and changeup for strikes, but both have been more fringe-average to average pitches this spring. His slider flashed above-average in the Cape Cod League last summer in shorter stints. Gray could end up eventually moving to the bullpen, but he's athletic and has very few innings on his arm, so scouts can dream that there's even more to come.
