2014

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.
