Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 45 | Field: 55 | Overall: 50

One of the better prep hitters in the 2015 Draft class, Grisham, who went by Trent Clark at that time, signed for $2.7 million as the No. 15 overall pick. While he hit well that summer in his pro debut, finishing with a .309 average, Grisham has struggled at the plate in each of the next three years, showing little in the way of average or power, albeit as a younger player at each level, as his prospect stock declined. That changed in 2019, though, as Grisham rebounded remarkably to hit for average and produce legitimate power numbers while climbing from Double- to Triple-A.

For years Grisham was unable to find his comfort zone as a hitter, and he looked particularly lost at the plate in 2018, setting up so far off the plate with an open stance that his front foot was borderline out of the batter's box. Grisham's stance, along with his naturally passive approach, opened the door for pitchers to attack him, and he struggled to drive the baseball even when he got a hittable pitch. The Brewers determined that Grisham's point of contact was consistently too deep, and they worked with him ahead of the 2019 season on hitting the ball more out in front. The results from that adjustment have been staggering, as Grisham is now clearing fences with ease while consistently driving to ball from pole-to-pole. What's more, he's tapped into that power without it detracting from the plate discipline and on-base skills that have been a staple in his pro career.

An average runner who earns high praise for his ability to read pitchers and steal bases, Grisham swiped a career-best 38 bases in 2017, but just 11 last year in Double-A. Defensively, Grisham primarily plays left field but has seen time at all three outfield positions throughout his career.
