Grier was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
The 39th overall pick in 2016, Grier was seen as a high-risk, high-reward outfielder. His hit tool never developed as needed, as he hit below .230 with a strikeout rate north of 31 percent in back-to-back seasons at High-A.

James Anderson stays in Low-A for the next stop on his tour of the minor leagues, and can't help but be impressed by Vlad Guerrero Jr.'s performance as an 18-year-old so far.
2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Diamondbacks selected Grier with the 39th overall pick in the 2016 draft after he had a solid junior year at Auburn, finally tapping into the power potential scouts projected for him coming out of high school. After a quick stint in the Pioneer League, Grier played out the rest of his first professional season with short-season Hillsboro, where he seemed quite overmatched. The nine steals (on 11 attempts) were nice, but he struck out 26.6 percent of the time while notching just three walks in 79 plate appearances. If he were a prep bat, it would be understandable for him to be a bit overmatched in his first taste of the lower levels, but as a college hitter who received a $1.5 million bonus, it would have been nice to see more polish against short-season pitching. He has plus speed and the potential for average or better game power, but the early returns suggest his hit tool won't allow him to actualize that power/speed combo against upper level pitching.
