Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 30 | Arm: 65 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45

Back in July 2012, Grullon was No. 17 on MLB.com's Top 20 International prospects list heading into that summer's signing period. The top-ranked catcher in the class signed with the Phillies for $575,000 and made his debut the next summer in the Gulf Coast League. It's been slow going since, especially with the bat, but he made progress in that regard in 2018 in Double-A Reading and he kept it going with a move to Triple-A in 2019.

Grullon has always had raw power, but it didn't really start showing up in games until last year when he hit 21 homers for Reading. He kept up his ability to impact the baseball with extra-base authority as he moved up a rung, showing that it was more than a result of his hitting-friendly environment in 2018. He's always been an aggressive hitter, albeit one who typically hasn't struck out a lot. His best defensive attribute is his cannon for an arm, though his lack of agility does limit his defensive value.

With as long as a route as it's been for Grullon, he's still only 23 for all of the 2019 season. He might have a ceiling as a backup, but he's not far from reaching it and could finally earn a spot on the 40-man roster, either with a callup or being added after the 2019 season is over.
