2023 Player Outlook
2023 Recap: Ray only made one start in 2023 and will be a more veteran arm returning from Tommy John surgery, so there's some concern to be had there when he returns in the summer months for the Giants. However, there's a lot of upside for Ray in San Francisco.
2024 Outlook: Oracle Park is great for pitchers, and Ray is no stranger to missing bats, posting a career 12.8 percent swinging strike rate. If he continues to generate a healthy amount of ground balls, he could be really, really good for the Giants and fantasy managers upon his return. We won't see him until the summer months, but if your league has IL spots, he's an ideal stash candidate. Upon his return to the mound, he should help your team's ratios and easily strike out over one batter per inning, something he did every season from 2016-2022.
