Focus Area
Comments
Fastball:Grimm has a big arm and can throw his fastball in the 89-93 mph range.
Fastball movement:He has fringy average life on his fastball.
Curve:Grimm's curve spins in at 73-77 mph. It's slightly below-average right now but projects to be an average pitch.
Changeup:Grimm throws a changeup at 81-83 mph and it, too, projects to be an average offering.
Control:Grimm's command projects to be average in the future.
Poise:He's got average pitchability and above-average mound presence.
Physical Description:Grimm is a projectable right-hander with a Ken Hill-body type.
Medical Update:Grimm missed his junior season with a broken arm, and he had a pin inserted near his elbow. It has since been removed and he has appeared healthy this year.
Strengths:Big arm with chance to have above-average fastball. He also has the chance to have two average secondary pitches.
Weaknesses:There might be some concern over the arm injury, and he's not a very advanced pitcher at this point.
Summary:Grimm has jumped on the map by maintaining a low-90s fastball for much of his senior season, particularly surprising after he missed his junior year with a broken arm. His other pitches are behind the heater, but have a chance to be Major League average. With his size, frame and fastball, he fits the mold of an interesting projectable high school right-hander with the potential to be a No. 4 starter in the future.
