Royals Claim Ken Ray Off Waivers

New, 11 comments

Hey, its a Brand X pitcher who throws hard! Thanks to "chukar" for the heads up on this one.

Ken Ray essentially replaces Mike Wood, who was a guy scouts hated but could pretty much throw 4-5 innings of league-average ball on a dime. Ken Ray is both a former Royal and a former Brave. Thats a two-fer for a retread lovin' franchise!

Mike Wood/Ken Ray diary link.

Ken Ray at baseball-reference.

Ray threw 67.7 innings in 2006 for a horrible Braves bullpen, posting a 4.52 ERA, 50 strikeouts and 38 walks.

Thoughts?
