WSC Birth Years: Jeff Gray

Card #92 - Jeff Gray

Born: November 19, 1981

Jeff was drafted in 2004 by the Oakland Athletics in the 32nd round. At the end of the 2009 season, Gray was traded to the Cubs, where he won his first MLB game.

He was granted Free Agency after the 2010 season and signed on with the White Sox. Jeff made an impression with the club in Spring Training, but did not break with the team. After the first week of the 2011 season, outfielder Lastings Milledge was designated for assignment and Gray was brought up.

The first week of the 2011 season was especially taxing on the ChiSox bullpen and an extra arm was needed. Jeff has filled in as a long man in the bullpen. He is usually called upon to eat innings during a lopsided game. In his first five games with the Pale Hose, he has finished a game four times.

Nice looking card. Looks like it could have been part of the real set.
