Not So Grimm

Justin Grimm

Battling some injuries in their rotation, Texas needed to dip into their prospect pool. Their choice? Justin Grimm. Martin Perez is Texas’ top pitching prospect, but he’s really been struggling.  It was interesting (and refreshing) to see Texas go with the ‘hot hand’ and not the ‘name’.

Justin Smoak

Big time Ranger prospect, now Seattle Mariner is finally showing signs of his potential coming through. Smoak was the primary piece of the Cliff Lee trade in 2010, but hasn’t lived up to his billing.  He was predicted to be the next Mark Texiera (back when he was good).  A power hitting switch hitter who …

Getting the Call: Andrelton Simmons

Andrelton Simmons

One of Atlanta’s better prospects, Andrelton Simmons, will be their new starting SS on Friday. Going into spring, Simmons battled Pastornicky for the starting shortstop gig.  Pastornicky was the favorite, so Simmons already had an uphill battle.  Despite the disadvantage, Simmons nearly pulled it off, with decent hitting and stellar defense.  But in the end, …
