RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jason Grimsley.
Grimsley came back early from Tommy John surgery in 2005 with limited results as he had a poor 5.73 ERA and 10/9 K/BB ratio in 22 innings with the Orioles. If he can stay healthy, he'll secure a few holds in a middle-relief role with the Diamondbacks in 2006.
The Orioles thought they were shoring up their bullpen midseason when they acquired Grimsley from Kansas City to be their primary right-handed set-up man. He was largely inconsistent however, blowing six saves, and after undergoing Tommy John surgery in October, will likely miss the entire 2005 campaign.
Before the All-Star game, Grimsley pitched in 49 games and had a 4.14 ERA. After that, he was throwing gas on fire, posting a 9.82 ERA in September. Whether it was the workload or Grimsley's advancing age as the cause of the decline will be answered this season.
Early in his career, Grimsley was a starter without much control, a problem that knocked him out of the majors for two years. He came back with the Yankees in 1999 and has improved every year since. He allowed only four home runs in 71 innings in 2002. He's 35-years old and probably too expensive for the Royals to keep.
