What Team Is Corey Ray On?

Corey Donte Ray (born September 22, 1994) is an American professional baseball outfielder in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He made his MLB debut in 2021.

In the 2016 Major League Baseball draft, the Milwaukee Brewers selected Ray with the fifth overall selection. He signed and spent his first professional season with both the Brevard County Manatees of the Class A-Advanced Florida State League and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers of the Class A Midwest League, batting .239 with five home runs, 17 RBI, and ten stolen bases in 60 games between both teams.

Ray spent 2017 with the Carolina Mudcats of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, where he posted a .238 batting average with seven home runs, 48 RBI, and 24 stolen bases in 112 games.

He played the 2018 season with the Biloxi Shuckers of the Class AA Southern League. After batting .239 with 27 home runs, 74 RBI, and 37 stolen bases, he was awarded the Southern League Most Valuable Player Award.

Ray was added to the Brewers 40-man roster following the 2019 season. He did not play a minor league game in 2020 due to the cancellation of the minor league season caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On April 24, 2021, Ray was promoted to the major leagues for the first time. He made his MLB debut that day as a pinch hitter for Freddy Peralta, recording a walk, scoring a run, and moving to right field later in the game. He was outrighted to Triple-A on June 17, 2022.
