    Commit/Drafted: Never Drafted
    Age At Draft: 20.9
    A full-time reliever as a freshman for East Carolina in 2021, Grosz moved into a split-starter role in 2022 and this spring in 2023 pitched exclusively as a starter and did well while doing so. He posted a 3.66 ERA over 16 starts and 76.1 innings with a 24.1% strikeout rate and 12.5% walk rate. Listed at 6-foot-4, 199 pounds, Grosz is big and athletic with a 91-93 mph fastball that touches 95, a low-80s slider that could be an above-average breaking ball and a firm, upper-80s changeup. A likely reliever at the next level, Grosz fits as a day three draft talent.
