Jonathan Gray is on his way
Jonathan Gray is a college Starting Pitcher for the Oklahoma Sooners. I’ll be the first one to admit that he wasn’t exactly a name on my list early on but as of late he has really been popping up everywhere. There’s a very good explanation for this and it’s simple.He’s a big RHP sitting 94-99 with a very nice 84MPH breaking ball. He’s got some Arm Side Run on the Fastball and while his command isn’t exactly pinpoint he throws both for solid strikes. I think the important thing I’m trying to get across here is he adds a very intriguing arm to this Draft picture. Early on there was alot of talk about the weakness of this class but for me I have always said this is a solid class and not as weak as made out to be. There’s an ungodly amount of Catching depth in this class and now with Austin Kubitza performing so well and Mr.Gray throwing that dynamite heat added in with the names of Stanek and Manaea as well Jon Crawford Bobby Wahl and Mark Appel.That’s beginning to look like a nice top of the draft group.
This post is to serve as a foresight that even though on my latest Mock I didn’t have Gray included that’s a bonehead call on my part and I’m caught up now trust me. He’s going top of the 1st I really do believe. He’s got a thick frame as you can see in the picture to my right but he’s not overly thick he’s got a solid frame is all. We’ll see how things play out but remember that I said top of the 1st.
