- Brewers' Top 30 prospects
Ray, the Brewers' first-round Draft pick in 2016, started in right field and went 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored.
Extending his season with the Rafters allows Ray an opportunity to make up for the at-bats he lost to an early-season recovery from knee surgery. The 23-year-old hit .238 with seven homers and 48 RBIs in 112 games for Class A Advanced Carolina.

Also representing the Brewers on the Rafters are pitchers Nate Griep, Adrian Houser, Jon Perrin and Quintin Torres-Costa; infielder Jake Gatewood (No. 18) and outfielder Monte Harrison (No 14).
The AFL season, typically considered a "finishing school" for prospects on the cusp of reaching the big leagues, runs through Nov. 18. Games are played Monday through Saturday at six Arizona Spring Training facilities: Surprise Stadium, Scottsdale Stadium, Camelback Ranch-Glendale, Salt River Fields, Sloan Park and Peoria Sports Complex.
Each organization is required to send at least six players to compete in the six-team league. This year, the Brewers' prospects are competing on the Rafters alongside players from the D-backs, Orioles, Rockies and Marlins.
