Chris Ray underwent Tommy John surgery yesterday and he will miss the rest of 2007 and almost all of the 2008 season. This is a huge blow to the Orioles as they viewed Ray as a building block of their team. He pitched in 43 games this season and he was 5-6 with 16 saves, a 4.43 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. In 42.2 innings this season he has allowed 35 hits, walked 18 batters and whiffed 44. The Orioles will now have to rely on Danys Baez, Chad Bradford and Jamie Walker to finish out games the remainder of the season.
