CHARLESTON, S.C. – A consistent presence as one half of Charleston’s double-play combination, second baseman Kyle Gray was called up to High-A Tampa as announced by the New York Yankees on Monday.
Gray slashed .236/.325/.378 with five home runs and 38 RBI as the RiverDogs’ everyday second baseman; his 75 starts at the position are the most for a Charleston player at any one spot on the diamond. His six triples were tied-second most in the South Atlantic League circuit. His patient approach produced a 10.9% walk-rate, drawing 37 bases on balls, ranking among the top-20 in the league.
Gray joins Mickey Gasper as the second member Charleston position player to garner promotion to Tampa this season. Catcher Eduardo Navas also spent a three-game stint in Double-A before returning to the RiverDogs roster.
