Sonny Gray

School: Smyrna HS (Tennessee)

Class: HS Senior

Height: 6′0″

Weight: 185 lbs.

Bats: Right

Throws: Right

Pos: RHP

Hometown: Smyrna, TN

Commitment: Vanderbilt

Previously Drafted: None

Strengths:
Gray has some of the best pure stuff of any pitcher in the draft. His fastball sits in the low 90s and can reach 95. His curve is his best pitch, however. It’s a hard curve that freezes even the best hitters. Gray has started throwing a slider that already is a plus pitch.

Weaknesses:
Scouts are apprehensive about Gray’s size (he’s only 6-foot) and his strong commitment to Vanderbilt.

The Future:
Top 15 picks. [UPDATE: 4/23]: Gray broke his right ankle on April 16 and will miss one month.  He hopes to be healthy for pre-draft workouts in late May.
