Round 17 - Nicholas Grim: RHP, Cal Poly San Louis Obisbo

Recommended Posts

Ranked #389 in Baseball America's Top 500.

An unsigned 14th-round pick by the Marlins last year out of Monterey Peninsula (Calif.) JC, Grim ranked as the No. 9 prospect last summer in the California Collegiate League, where he struck out 51 in 32 innings. He never emerged as key piece of Poly's bullpen this spring, going 3-2, 4.74 with 20 walks and 19 strikeouts in 25 innings. Grim's 6-foot-3 frame lacks physicality, but he does have a quick arm, sitting at 90-91 mph and touching 93. His delivery has effort and his stuff can flatten out up in the zone, though his fastball does have some sink down in the zone. He flashes an average slider with depth, though it's slurvy when he gets on the side of it. His changeup is not an effective pitch at this stage. His mound presence, control and command must improve.

You might say that line is rather....grim.

(puts on sunglasses)


Ah, I see someone did go there! I was tempted, but resisted the urge.

Hopefully it was just nerves that got the best of him this first time out. Let's hope he can string together a some good outings now that this one is behind him.
