Chris Ray Career

Early life and career

Ray graduated from Hillsborough High School in Tampa, Florida, and attended The College of William and Mary, where he began playing for the baseball team. He played collegiate summer baseball with the Bourne Braves of Cape Cod, and was named a league all-star in 2002. In the third round of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft, he was selected by the Orioles.

Professional career

Before being called up in June of 2005, he spent his 2003 and 2004 seasons in the Orioles minor leagues.

Ray allowed only two earned runs in just under 20 innings in 2005. Ray was also linked to the Bowie Baysox, the Orioles' Double-A affiliate. Bowie's time with him was brief, as he was called up again in late August. Ray allowed 4 earned runs in 16 innings during his second stint with the Orioles. Ray finished 2005 with a 2.66 ERA in 40 innings played over 41 games, tying a record of 1-3 with eight holds. Ray also produced a 1.28 WHIP.

Ray's 2005 season had so impressed, the Orioles coaching staff were considering him their closer friend. However, since the Orioles have had no success with rushing players into big league roles, they decided to ease Ray into a more familiar role sometime in 2007. Nonetheless, B.J. is closer. Ryan joined the Orioles as a free agent for the Toronto Blue Jays, and the Orioles were unable to find a faster solution, prompting Ray to be the Orioles' de facto closer.

Ray was the full-time closer to the Baltimore Orioles for the 2006 season. Ray had a fruitful first season as the O's closer. Ray made 33 saves with a 2.73 ERA and 51 strikeouts, as well as a batting average of just.193. Given Ray's popularity, the Orioles stuck with him as their closer for the 2007 regular season. However, his success would not persist, resulting in a subpar year. Ray's numbers dropped to 16 saves in 2005 with a 4.43 ERA and 44 strikeouts.

On August 17, 2007, Ray Underwent Tommy John surgery. He made nine minor league appearances in August 2008 but did not pitch for the Orioles during the season. In 2009, he made the opening day roster but it was a period of 7.27.

On June 30, 2010, Ray and pitcher Michael Main was traded to the San Francisco Giants, as well as pitching prospect Michael Main for Bengie Molina. Andy Baggarly referred to him as the "fifth inning, runners on second and third with two outs" member of the bullpen.

Ray Neddered Ray, the Giants' non-tendered Ray, was made a free agent on December 2, 2010.

Ray signed a minor league deal with the Seattle Mariners on January 25, 2011. An invitation to spring training was included in the agreement. Ray was placed on the 15-day disabled list on August 1, 2011 with a strained right shoulder latissi. He was released on August 16.
