Teams that are hung up on velocity might pass on lefthander Grills, and they'd miss a pitcher who makes up for his average velocity with savvy and a track record of winning. Grills has been pitching with Canada's national teams since he was 14 and thrives in big situations. He throws his fastball in the 87-89 mph range and flashes 90s, though he's touched higher in the past. He mixes in a two-seamer with good life, an average curveball, a below-average slider and a changeup. Grills has a tall, loose and athletic body. His delivery isn't picture-perfect, and he sometimes falls off the mound a la Mitch Williams. He still throws all his pitches for strikes, attacks hitters and breaks a lot of bats. He's committed to San Jacinto (Texas) JC.
