Biographical Data
Player Name:Scott Griggs

Focus Area
Fastball:Griggs can throw his fastball up to 92 mph. He pitches at 90 mph, but there might be more in the tank.
Fastball movement:There's a little arm-side sink when he's down in the zone.
Curve:Right now, it's a tick below average, but could be an average offering in the future.
Slider:A little bit better than his curve; it could be an above-average offering down the road.
Control:It's an issue. He doesn't have command consistently because of some delivery factors and doesn't seem to have a natural feel for pitching.
Poise:He's a good kid, but doesn't always seem ready mentally for pitching.
Physical Description:Griggs has a good, projectable pitcher's body.
Medical Update:He's been dealing with a recurring finger blister that has caused him to back off in outings. He had an elbow issue in his junior year, but seems to be fine now.
Strengths:Good pitcher's body, good arm with some projection to him and the chance to have three average pitches.
Weaknesses:Delivery prolbems have led to command and control issues. He doesn't have a great feel for pitching, so sometimes you see great stuff but without the results you'd expect.
Summary:Griggs is a projectable high school right-hander in Northern California who has some good stuff, but hasn't always had the kind of results you'd like to see with that arsenal. He's got three pitches -- fastball, curve, slider -- that could all be at least average offerings in the future and there might be more in the tank. Command is an issue because of some delivery problems, and he had to deal with a blister throughout the spring. There are teams who do like projects, and there is a lot to work with here, so someone might try to sign Griggs away from his commitment to UCLA.
