He only posted a 6.70 ERA in 44.1 innings (he missed 10 weeks with a lat injury) in the Sally League, but there are scouts who covered the league who say Groome was the best pitcher they saw all season. At his best he features a mid-90s fastball and one of the best curveballs in the minors. He has struggled with his command and his changeup is still a work in progress. However, as a lefty with excellent size (6-foot-6, 220 pounds) and a couple monster pitches, his dynasty-league owners would be wise to exercise patience. His father was arrested on gun and drug charges in mid July, and Groome proceeded to post a 9.00 ERA over the following four starts, so it’s possible that he was distracted over that stretch. Without a strong support system from his family, there is an extra level of risk with Groome that is not present with most high-end pitching prospects. He ended the year on the shelf with a forearm strain, so staying healthy and building up his innings will be imperative in 2018.

  2. Jay Groome 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Groome was selected out of Barnegat Township (N.J.) with the 12th overall pick in the 2016 draft. Some evaluators felt the left-hander was the top talent in the draft, but questions about his makeup cropped up during his senior year of high school, precipitating a draft-day slide. The Red Sox were happy to land the 6-foot-6, 220-pound Groome, whose easy delivery and preternatural curve give him a good base from which to build something special -- a potential No. 2 starter with the stuff to overshoot that projection. The fastball sits in the 93-95 mph range, topping out at 97, and could achieve greater velocity as he adds weight. At 18 years old, he already owns of one of the best curveballs in the minors, and along with his fastball he could bring two 70-grade pitches to the table as he moves up the ladder. He will work on refining his third pitch (a changeup) in the coming season. His command, which wavered during his outings in the Gulf Coast League and the one appearance at short-season Lowell, will also need to improve.
