LATEST PG SHOWCASE REPORT
2007 National Showcase  
Sonny Gray is a 2008 RHP/IF with a 6'0'', 185 lb. frame from Smyrna, TN who attends Smyrna. He has a strong lower half and a looser, slimmer upper 1/2. Gray throws from a high 3/4's release point with some fall off to first base on release but his arm is very quick and the ball comes out of his hand very easily. He has a full delivery but it's fluid and easy and well balanced to release. Gray warmed up throwing 93 mph with little effort and he was consistently 93-95 mph in the game and didn't throw a pitch under 92 mph. Despite the 95's, his real eye opening pitch is a 84 mph curveball that has a had downer power bite with excellent depth. Some might be tempted to look at the velo and label it a slider, but it's a curveball with curveball rotation and depth. Gray also shows a nice feel for a young pitcher for a change up. Gray's raw stuff and build is similar to Kyle Drabek, the Phillies first round pick in 2006. Gray is also an outstanding athlete, a highly accomplished football player who can play shortstop and swing the bat with authority. He has a verbal commitment to Vanderbilt.
