42 1273 Florida Marlins Jerad Grundy LHP Ill.
Lefthander Jerad Grundy earned a scholarship to Miami out of Johnsburg (Ill.) HS, but after pitching just 18 innings as a freshman in 2010, he transferred back home to Heartland CC. With an 88-92 mph fastball that touches 94 and a slider that generates swings and misses, he has the weapons to be a late-inning reliever in pro ball. His size (6 feet, 183 pounds) and maximum-effort delivery probably will prevent him from remaining a starter, though he does flash an average changeup. A 46th-round pick of the Rangers out of high school, Grundy has committed to Kentucky for 2012.
