Prospect Spotlight

Griggs threw 2.1 innings this week. He struggled with his command in the strike-zone on Friday night, however, giving up the tying run late on a well hit single off of a center-cut 0-2 fastball and the go-ahead homer off of a hanging slider. Griggs has a big fastball at 93-to-95 mph and he hides it a bit with his short arm action and crossfire delivery. He does a good job working glove side and has been throwing a lot of strikes thus far in 2016, something that has plagued him a bit in past years. His slider has the makings of an above-average pitch with swing-and-miss potential, and he likes burying it down and in on lefties. With his swing-and-miss capabilities, Griggs – if he can limit the walks – has a chance to shoot through the system and contribute at the upper-minor league levels this year. — Dave DeFreitas
