Drafted in the 10th round (311th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2013 (signed for $5,000)
Grundy will get drafted for the fourth time in June after previously turning down the Rangers (46th round out of an Illinois high school in 2009), Marlins (42nd round out of Heartland, Ill., CC in 2011) and the Twins (27th round out of Kentucky last year). Grundy, who began his college career at Miami, has remade himself as a senior by adding polish at the expense of pure stuff. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder has shown better control and improved feel for his changeup, but his fastball now sits at 86-88 mph and his slider has lost sharpness. Scouts projected him as a reliever because he had a lot of effort in his delivery, but they liked him more when he ran his fastball as high as 94 mph and got more swings and misses with his slider.
