Justin Grimm, Setup Man

When Justin Grimm came over from the Rangers in the Matt Garza trade last year, his profile seemed straightforward. Three pitches: fastball, curveball, and changeup. There was nothing remarkable about any of them. The fastball sat around 92-93, and he was starting to mix in a sinker. His minor league numbers were OK. In limited major-league appearances, his peripherals were around...

2013 Cubs Prospects in Review: Justin Grimm

Continuing with the trend of pieces acquired via the Texas Rangers, today I'll look at Justin Grimm. Taken in the 5th round of the 2010 draft after a successful college career at the Univeristy of Georgia, Justin debuted at Class A and pitched the majority of the season at A+ ball (in 2011). It didn't take him long to break into the majors, as he dominated AA Frisco in 2012 en...

Chicago Cubs trade Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers

Ten years ago tomorrow, the Chicago Cubs made a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates that would help propel them to their 2003 playoff run. That day the Cubs received Kenny Lofton and Aramis Ramirez for aging infielder Jose Hernandez, minor league pitcher Matt Bruback, and a player to be named later (who ended up being infielder Bobby Hill). That trade, in my opinion, is arguably the...

Rangers’ Justin Grimm exits with forearm injury

Texas Rangers right-hander Justin Grimm was removed from last night’s contest in the fourth inning after experiencing tightness in his forearm. The Rangers said after the game that the move was precautionary, as they don’t expect the ailment to be serious, according to T.R.

Morales, Mariners pound Grimm, Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Justin Grimm came into Tuesday's game against Seattle having earned wins in his last two starts. That number was a tad misleading though because Grimm was the beneficiary of solid offensive nights that masked five-inning starts from the rookie right-hander. There was no masking his performance against the Mariners. Grimm was blasted for six runs in four...
