Ken Ray, who started in the minors in 1993, appeared in the majors in 1999 and then was back in the minors. He returned to the Majors with the Atlanta Braves in 2006, and in 2007 was in AAA. A gaffe during his days with the Kansas City Royals resulted in being announced as "Key Ray"; the "Key" stuck.
With the 1999 Royals, he was the same age as teammate Jeremy Giambi. With the 2006 Braves, he was three years younger than teammate Chipper Jones. Ray pitched 69 games in 2006, second on the staff to Macay McBride, and was even the team's closer for a short span in mid-season. By the second half of 2007, neither Ray nor McBride was pitching for the Braves.
He holds the record for most appearances in a season without striking out a single batter at 13 (he did this in 1999).
