Scottsdale, Arizona —— Late last week at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the beautiful baseball facility hosted by the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks in Scottsdale, we caught up with Milwaukee Brewers outfield prospect Corey Ray before a recent Arizona Fall League game.
On-air host Sande Charles talks early impressions of the AFL with Ray, who spent the 2017 season in High-A before being assigned to Salt River. The pair also discuss his University of Louisville roots and a few more things — all of which you can watch in our video interview right here:
In 112 games (449 at-bats) this year before coming to the Arizona Fall League, Corey Ray had slashed .238/.311/.367/.679 with the Carolina Mudcats, and put up 29 doubles, four triples, seven home runs, 24 stolen bases, and 48 walks against 156 strikeouts in that span. A dynamic outfielder who is a very good athlete that’ll grow into the more nuanced aspects of the game, Ray figures to start 2018 at Double-A and could move quickly depending upon how he makes what many believe is the toughest adjustment in baseball.
The outfielder remains one of the top prospects the Milwaukee Brewers are developing, and a high-profile Milwaukee asset out at AFL along with Jake Gatewood (who we interviewed last week) and Lucas Erceg (who we just interviewed, too; his video will be out later this week). Hope you enjoyed the interview video above; over the winter, we’ll be posting video clips of several dozen Corey Ray at-bats from his AFL time this month, too.
