WNY All-Star Games (August 27, 2015)

Offensively- At the plate his setup is relaxed and balanced, longer leg kick stride, with a back load.  His hands are very compact and strong, swinging with a little uphill tilt but straight to the ball, with long/full extension through the ball.  His exit velocity was 78 MPH.  He is a player who shows potential to progress to the next level in college.

Preseason All-State (February 15, 2015)
 
Gruber stands 5-foot-10, 175-pounds with a solidly built frame. Pitching- From the mound he uses a sidestep, into a relaxed delivery, high knee lift. Arm action is long, throws from a low-3/4 slot with some hand speed. Fastball sits 77-78 mph, curveball/slurve 64 mph with sweeping shape. Gruber is only a sophomore with a lot of time to grow, he's a WNY LHP to keep an eye on.
