Player of the Week: Grayson Grinsell


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

Each week this season, the PBR Nevada staff will be selecting the Player of the Week from the submissions received from the coaches and peers after games have been completed on Saturday afternoons. Submissions will be accepted through Sunday and announced Monday morning as we head into the next week of games.

Player of the Week

Grinsell had himself a huge week on both sides of the ball going 6-11 at the plate then earning a complete game shutout, striking out 15 in batters in the process while allowing 0 walks and using 89 pitches in the effort. The two-way prospect also held down the centerfield position earlier in the week against a talented Damonte Ranch team where he used his PBR Verified 6.85 speed to track down a potential game tying hit, over his head with an excellent leaping catch at the warning track. The PBR Nevada ProCase attendee has continued to see his game trend in the right direction with additional physical strength translating to each part of his game which culminated at his standout performance at the Reno Knights Scout Day where he posted personal bests in both the 60 Yard Dash and Outfield Velocity where he lead all Scout Days with his 96 mph throw, helping the future Oregon Duck to move up to the #4 spot in the Nevada 2022 Class Rankings.

Congratulations to Grayson Grinsell on earning Nevada's Player of the Week.

Scouting Report

10/21/18 - Wiry, 5-foot-10, 140. Grinsell has an athletic build.   This projectable two way player is as loose and natural as they come.  On the mound, his delivery is smooth and easy from the windup, gathering over the rubber and releasing from a ¾ slot. His fastball has some straight fade on his arms side.  His curveball is lite but shape and spin are there.  Like the fastball, his changeup has fade life to his arm side.  From the stretch, he rushes a bit with the use of a slide step which hinders velocity, but the zone feel remains good.  In the field, Grinsell possesses good rhythm with a long loose release and solid carry.  He plays the arm side run from the outfield well.  Size and strength gains might potentially shift him to corner outfield, but his quickness makes a stay in CF prominent. Grinsell stands in at the plate with an open stance, tapping back to straight knee to knee and then striding. He shows heavy hand load, tipping the barrel behind his head, providing major separation.   He hits against a firm front side with some natural loft. His barrel is free and easy with whip at the end. He makes consistent hard contact and flashes raw power. He is a projectable 5 tool type player.
