2015

2014

Grimm's two years in Texas were no fairy tale, as he gave up 138 hits and 81 runs in just 103 innings. He began the year at Triple-A Round Rock, but was quickly thrust into the starting rotation when Matt Harrison got hurt. He came over to the Cubs in the Matt Garza deal and showed a little improvement, but still has some work to do. Grimm has shown some promise in the minors, most notably with Double-A Frisco in 2012 (73:14 K:BB ratio), so hope remains.

2013

Grimm made a few token appearances in the majors, but spent most of the 2012 season split between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. His control numbers and K/9 took a nose dive against more advanced hitters at Triple-A Round Rock, taking the shine off his start from a solid beginning to 2012 with Double-A Frisco. He doesn't project as much more than a groundball inducing swingman, similar in that regard to Scott Feldman.
