Jeff Gray the missing Bullpen piece? One of the answers?

7

The Twins claimed RHP Jeff Gray off-waivers from the pitching rich Seattle Mariners the same day they claimed soft-tossing Lefty Matt Maloney (one of Krivsky's Favorites) At first, neither player stuck me as anything more than a nice AAA piece for the red wings 2012 team. However, the more i think about it the more i'd be open to Gray over the likes of Alex Burnett or Phil Dumatrait on the Twins 25-man. Here is an interview done at TCD (twins cities dugout with the right hander) In the piece, Gray sounds as if he and the orginazation has the confidence to be one of the primary options in the mold of Perkins and Capps. The 30 year old Gray shows more velocity than Burnett, Dumatrait, Waldrop, MIjares last year and at times even Swarzak. But it sounds as if his Sinker and Change-Up are his 2 best pitches. Gray has never been the type to miss many bats, but if he can keep the ball in the yard, and hopefully get GB's at a high rate he could be servicable. stats page (Bill James 2012 prediction.... the outlook is not good)

Along similar lines to the predict the Sally Lg post, how about the FSL? I think so far the Sal and Mdwst Lg are the two strongest. I think the FSL has a chance to be right behind those two.
