Drafted in the 11th round (337th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2019 (signed for $347,500)
A physical, 6-foot-3, 180-pound shortstop who plays at the same high school as top prospect Riley Greene, Grissom has a solid set of tools, though teams are mixed on how well he’s able to get the most of them. Close to an average though unconventional runner now, most believe that Grissom will be below-average when he fills into a large frame, making him a better fit for third base than shortstop. He has the glovework and enough arm strength for the hot corner, but his bat needs plenty of work. Grissom’s path can flatten out during his swing, and while he makes hard contact he struggled to consistently elevate the ball. Grissom’s tools are intriguing, but each comes with legitimate questions. He’s a Florida International commit.
