Uncommitted Spotlight: Brother Helps Stephenson Through Setback

Grant Stephenson SS / RHP / Algonac, MI / 2020

CLAY - Brotherly support has helped Grant Stephenson get through a setback in his baseball life.

It was last May when Stephenson, now a sophomore at Algonac High School, tore a ligament in his right elbow and a few months later Tommy John Surgery took place.

“It’s been nine months now and my arm is 90 percent,” the 18th-ranked player in the state’s 2020 class said. “Rehab has been really good so far and I’m starting to get confident. I’ve not been on the mound yet, probably in a month.”

Instead, the college shortstop and pitching prospect has been working his way toward recovery playing other positions.

“It did put me in a setback mentally,” the 6-2 165-pounder admitted. “But I overcame that. It feels good to be back after missing all last summer. Right now I’m hitting and playing first base. About two weeks ago I got to play second base.”
