The interesting thing that stems from this, is that Gray actually could be seen as more favorable for the first overall pick, due to the monetary restraints via the new CBA. Gray could end up signing for a considerable discount, and the Astros could end up spending that money that they saved later in the draft, like last year, when they passed up on RHP Mark Appel for SS Carlos Correa in order to later draft Rio Ruiz and Lance McCullers. Gray could also be marked down by some teams, due to character, but I would think that the scenario would be unlikely.
I personally really like Gray, and think he will see a major league uniform one day, as a dominant starter, but not quite an ace. I still think he trumps Mark Appel.
