    Grady ranked as a top-200 prospect in the 2022 draft class after a .310/.419/.509 season with a career-high 10 home runs. He went undrafted and returned to Dallas Baptist for his fourth season with the program, and now looks like a solid senior sign candidate or day three prospect following yet another strong campaign. The 5-foot-9, 178-pound switch-hitter hit .309/.416/.534 with 12 home runs and also walked more than he struck out for the first time in his college career. He’s hit a handful of home runs from both the right and left side of the plate this spring, but projects as a 40-grade power hitter at the next level and should find more success by driving balls into the gaps. Grady has consistently been a good fastball hitter and continued to handle 92-plus mph velocity in 2023, with a 1.179 OPS against those pitches in a 131-pitch sample. He’s a solid-average runner who should be a fine defender in the outfield, and while he played mostly right field for DBU this spring, a fringe-average arm makes him a better fit for left field in pro ball.
