7/5/16- Committed to the University of South Alabama.

6/10/2018: At 6’0/200 pounds, Grimes is a lean and explosive athlete who has a good blend of tools. Add in the fact that he’s slashing .536/.552/.893 after his first 6 games of the NYCBL season and you could argue he’s the most complete prospect in the league right now. I only had the chance to see Grimes in the DH role when I was in attendance but it’s easy to notice his athleticism from the moment he steps into the batter’s box. He hits from the left side with a wide and even stance. The hands start relaxed near the back shoulder with a little movement to stay in rhythm. He uses a leg lift that gets his front knee up to his waist. As he gets out of his load and into his forward move, Grimes moves the hands back and closer to the body as his barrel starts to flatten out and get more horizontal to get on plane with the pitch. Although he generated mostly ground ball contact when I saw him, there’s lift to his swing as he finishes and he does a good job of working his hands inside the ball. Showed a good approach and never chased anything out of the zone. All of the actions are loose and sync up together nicely. It will be important to see whether or not all of the movement he has at the plate makes it difficult to consistently be on time against better pitching. Once out of the box, Grimes used quick and powerful strides as a baserunner. He’s the type of runner who pushes a lot of force into the ground with each step as opposed to someone who has smooth and graceful strides. He had times of 4.28 and 4.32 down the line on ground balls so he should maintain at least an average run tool as he gets older and stronger. He also currently has 6 stolen bases in 7 attempts this summer. Clocked him at 3.26 on one of the successful attempts I had the chance to see. Although I wasn’t able to evaluate how Grimes moves in the outfield, there’s still plenty of things he can do on a baseball field that get your attention. After a full summer of hitting with wood, I think we’ll have a much better understanding of how well these tools impact a game. (Dan Jurik)
