Free agent projections are out from Fangraphs and ESPN, and so it is that time again — time for the “should the Rangers sign This Player?” series of offseason polls.
Today we are looking at Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Robbie Ray.
Over at ESPN, Kiley McDaniel projects that Ray will get 4 years, $76 million. At Fangraphs, Ben Clemens has Ray at 4 years, $112 million, while the Median Crowdsource comes in at 4 years, $72 million, though the Average Crowdsource is 4.75 years at $22.4 million per year.
That’s a big spread in opinions. McDaniel notes that Ray’s history of inconsistency and command problems, combined with Patrick Corbin’s recent 6 year, $140M deal being seen as an over pay, will have team’s reluctant to hit nine digits, and while Clemens acknowledges the risk Ray will revert, he sees the potential upside as being enough for teams to end up spending big on Ray.
I’m going to use four years, $112 million as our number for the poll, mainly because I think Clemens’ number makes the poll question more interesting.
