Sam Gray Scouting Report — OF, Los Angeles Mission College

Prospect: Sam Gray
Position: Outfielder
Organization: Los Angeles Mission College
Height/Weight: 6’2″, 180 lbs.
Bats/Throws: R/R
Age/DOB: Sophomore (2nd Year, JuCo)
Acquired/Hometown: Santa Clarita, CA (West Ranch HS)
Date(s) Seen: February - March, 2018

4.24 and 4.25 up the line from the RHH box; 4.49 turn at first.

Good size; big kid with good natural strength, getting close to final physical form. Good musculature; strong wrists and forearms will help with barrel manipulation at the plate, power could develop some because of it … Sort of a mechanically funky swing at times with an inside-out approach, but just when he lulls you to sleep with it, he’ll turn on a hard fastball on the inner half and hit it hard in the air. Sneaky good pop from the right side of the plate; good bat speed and very quick hands; able to keep his hands in when pitched on the inner half; will elevate the ball with pop from there. Flicked wrists for a home run to dead center in one of my looks; impressive pop without having to do much … Susceptible on the outer half, and will strike out and produce weak contact when pitched away. Needs better, more full plate coverage as he transitions to four-year ball … Very strong outfield defender; not a ton of foot speed up the base line, but quickness manifests itself in center field; tons of range with long strides at top speed, covers ground. Will sell out and dive to make plays; enough athleticism to actually execute on dives and get outs; advanced defender for this level … Strong outfield arm; twice in my looks he threw perfect strikes to the plate from mid-center field to throw out base runners; accurate and consistent arm strength with great carry and pretty good velo … Fits well in center field at this level; may work best at higher levels as corner outfielder, but going to be a good defender wherever he goes … Will need to make offensive adjustments against better pitching, but feels like a Division I talent here with athleticism and natural strength; must find fit as contributing outfielder at the four-year level with shot to flourish if power bat takes off.
