College: UC Riverside

Drafted in the 14th round (421st overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Granillo drew attention when he started touching 95-96 mph early in the season as UC Riverside’s closer, but he broke his hand after he punched his locker and missed two months in the middle of the year. He went to the Cape Cod League after the season and re-boosted his stock with a strong showing for Cotuit, posting a 1.25 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 11 innings. Granillo is a big-bodied righthander at 6-foot-4, 225 pounds with power stuff. His fastball sits 91-94 and touches 96 mph and he backs it up with a late-breaking, swing-and-miss slider in the low 80s and a 12-to-6 curveball in the mid 70s. Granillo has a fearless closer mentality and racks up strikeouts when he’s on. He has a chance to be taken on the draft’s third day after his showing in the Cape.
