Prospect Spotlight

Grove was looking like a first-rounder as an underclassman at West Virginia, regularly working his fastball into the mid-90s with a hard-biting breaker. He went down with Tommy John surgery at the end of his sophomore year, shelving him for summer ball and all of last spring leading up to the 2018 Draft. The Dodgers stayed on him and signed the righty to an over-slot bonus in the second round, though he didn’t pitch in an official game all summer. Grove’s stuff is impactful enough to stay on the prospect radar even as he’s easing back into game action in 2019.
