Team Florida played three games and we will take a look at each player from 2018 Team Florida. Today, we take a look at the four outfielders in attendance.



Corbin Grantham OF / Buchholz, FL / 2020

Standing at 5-foot-11, 181 pounds he is an extremely well put together, twitchy athlete. Son of the University of Florida’s defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, you can see the all around athleticism. Running a team best 6.55 60 yard dash, he is an extremely twitchy athlete. Still fairly new to baseball full time, the tools are a bit raw in game, but overall he has a ton of tool and extremely high ceiling. Still a bit raw on routes in the outfield, he still track balls down extremely well with natural athleticism and closing speed. Offensively, the twitchiness translates to above average bat speed. He can cut himself off at times, but when he works through to extension, his natural strength has present power with more to come. Had a double in the game against Carolina and as he continues to get baseball reps the sky's the ceiling.

Behind the plate, the athleticism plays well and is a solid defender. He also plays some infield and moves well and is a solid defender. Overall, he has an IQ for the game and is a player that can be a super utility guy, which will be very valuable to a club at the next level. Offensively, there is present bat speed and strength. He has bat to ball skills, with a fairly compact swing. He has gap to gap power and translated to an RBi single against the Carolina’s. He is a very athletic, super utility player whose bat will play at the next level.
