Grant Lavigne
Name: Grant Douglas Lavigne
Born: Aug 27, 1999 in Bedford, N.H. USA
High School: Bedford (N.H.) HS
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 220 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (42nd overall) by the Colorado Rockies in 2018 (signed for $2,000,000)
A 6-foot-4, 230-pound lefthanded hitter, Lavigne has some of the best power among prep bats in the draft class, with 70-grade raw power. Lavigne has been complimented for cleaning up his body leading up to the draft and is considered a decent athlete for his size, although he projects as a first baseman in most evaluators' eyes. If that's the case, Lavigne's draft stock largely depends on his hit tool. Lavigne has displayed good feel to hit this spring in New Hampshire--where the competition is questionable--and he will need to continue to hit in order to tap into his power--his one carrying tool. If a team believes in his bat, then Lavigne could easily go in the top three rounds. Worst case, Lavigne could head to Wake Forest, where he could build up a track record of hitting against ACC competition and maybe even prove he can handle third base or left field, which would significantly help his profile.
