It was a wet weekend that saw many games cancelled or pushed back, but the games that were played offered fodder for plenty of interesting analysis.

Oklahoma right-hander Jonathan Gray continues to look like the most dominant pitcher in college baseball. Meanwhile, an athletic right-handed arm continued his good run in difficult surroundings, while two outfielders did their best to prove their tools will show up in games.

• Gray was facing one of the worst teams in college baseball, so it should come as no surprise the Sooner ace was dominant Friday. Gray went six shutout innings, giving up two weak singles while walking no one and striking out 10 in a 10-0 win against New Orleans. Once again, Gray's fastball sat in the high 90s, and it's looking more and more like he's a lock as a top-five, if not top-two, pick in the draft.

Keith Law had Gray at No. 2 on his most recent ranking of the top draft prospects, which was released last week.
