Scouting Report

Grant Green is a player that seems to tweak his game and makes adjustments on the fly. With that said, he appears to improve with each viewing. Green had a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League, proving to be a quick study in the outfield. He's already taking some good routes to the ball and has no problem flashing the plus speed and arm strength to handle the position. However, he still is not all the way there as far as getting the correct jumps. But, it appears that will come with time.

As much progress as he's made defensively, it will always be Green's bat that carries him. His combination of balance and quick hands have long impressed scouts. He continued to show off that bat in Arizona during the fall. Green turns on the plus fastball with relative ease and impressed by taking some breaking balls to the opposite field. He's also showing an improved ability to fight off pitcher's pitches when he's behind in the count. There's never been much doubt about his ability at the plate, but the polish is really beginning to show up.
