22-Year-Old PitcherRP
Los Angeles Dodgers AA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
From a fantasy standpoint, Jeter Downs was the jewel of the Dodgers' return from Cincinnati for Yasiel Puig, but Gray might have more real-life value. An athletic 6-foot-1 righty who has only been working as a starter for two years (dating back to college), Gray's mid-90s fastball remains his top offering, but his above-average slider and average changeup improved in his first full season. He does not generate groundballs at a high clip, but could end up with plus command/control. Gray climbed from Low-A (21.6 K-BB%) to High-A (25.1 K-BB%) and finished the year with an impressive run (18.6 K-BB%) as one of the youngest pitchers in the Texas League. The fact that he has come this far in less than two years in pro ball is incredibly impressive, and suggests that there is still more room for growth. He could reach the majors this summer as a reliever/swing man and could join the rotation full time in 2021. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a contract with the Reds in June of 2018. Traded to the Dodgers in December of 2018.
Heads back to minors
PLos Angeles Dodgers  AA
March 6, 2020
Gray was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gray appeared in two Cactus League contests this spring, allowing two earned runs on three hits in 1.1 innings. He turned heads in the minor leagues last season, so it's not a reach to anticipate his major-league debut at some point in 2020 if he continues to pitch well.
