Trent Grisham
24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Grisham raised his fantasy stock tenfold with a breakthrough 2020 campaign in which he finished as one of only six players to notch double-digit home runs (10) and steals (10). The speed has always been there -- Grisham swiped 37 bags in the minors in 2017 -- but the power is a more recent development as he had not exceeded eight long balls until busting out with 26 between two minor-league stops in 2019. Grisham's 88.3 mph average exit velocity was nothing special, but 20-plus homers seems reasonable given his above-average hard-hit rate (41.8%) and barrel rate (11.1%) along with a tendency to pull the ball (43.8 Pull%). The center fielder's patience at the plate (12.3 BB%) should help pad his stolen-base total, and his elite defense will keep him in an everyday role. There are few things more coveted in fantasy than the combination of speed and power, so Grisham should be a popular target come draft day. Read Past Outlooks

April 13, 2021
Grisham went 1-for-4 with a home run, two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Padres.
ANALYSIS
Grisham led off the game with a solo home run to center for his third long ball in as many games. The 24-year-old would end up walking in his next two at-bats and came around to score both times. Grisham has now reached base at least twice in all four games since returning from the 10-day injured list April 9 and is slashing .400/.526/.1.067 as the Padres' main leadoff hitter.

2017
2016
Grisham was barely on the prospect radar when 2019 began, but by the end of the season, he was playing a key role for Milwaukee. Grisham had struggled the prior couple years, but an adjustment to his swing late in the 2018 campaign paid off in a big way, as he crushed pitchers at both Double-A and Triple-A before earning a promotion to the big leagues for the first time. Grisham did not run as frequently last year, but that was partly due to a spike in his slugging percentage. He brings a good eye to the plate, as evidenced by his career .376 OBP in the minors. With a more pressing need in the infield, the Brewers traded Grisham as part of the package to get Luis Urias from San Diego. The Padres' outfield situation is a bit cluttered as well, but Grisham's playing time is likely more secure now that he's on a second-division team. The lefty-hitting Grisham could even be a fit in the top-third of the lineup.
The prospect formerly known as Trent "Clark" changed his last name to honor his mother, but by either name he is one of the Brewers' most promising youngsters. Just how bright his future is, is uncertain at this point, though, as he struggled to hit for both average and power in 2017 for the second year in a row. One thing Clark definitely succeeds at, however, is getting on base: he has posted a .372 OBP as a professional, and he finished second among all minor leaguers last season with 98 walks. With him still reaching base often despite striking out a whopping 141 times, Clark was a threat on the basepaths, and he made major strides in that area, upping his success rate from 33 percent the year before to 88 percent in 2017. Clark is a former first rounder who will be just 21 years old for the entire 2018 campaign, so he has the time and skills to diversify his portfolio at the plate. He has slid down prospect lists, but his pedigree could help him rebound like fellow Milwaukee outfield prospect Monte Harrison did last year.
Clark was dominant in rookie ball in 2016, but elevation to full-season ball in the Midwest League exposed the 19-year-old's weaknesses. He struck out 62 times in just 59 games for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, was caught stealing 10 times and succeeded on just five attempts, and mustered just a .231/.346/.344 batting line. Still, Clark remains one of Milwaukee's most promising prospects -- an athletic outfielder with the ability to stick in center field and a promising hit tool that has drawn comparisons to Michael Brantley, another former Brewers outfield prospect. He's still a few years away, but his stock will be worth watching.
Clark was selected 15th overall by the Brewers in the 2015 draft, and he wasted no time justifying that decision. Despite sitting out some time after a scary collision with the outfield wall, Clark slashed .309/.422/.442 to go with 20 stolen bases in the Arizona Rookie League. He also put up similar numbers in the Pioneer League with rookie-level Helena. The left-hander did strike out fairly frequently (18 percent of the time in the Arizona League), but he also showed good discipline while producing a 15 percent walk rate. At only 19 years old, Clark is already a top prospect and has lots of potential to be a major force with the Brewers in the future.
