Trent Grisham News
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham is absent from Tuesday's starting lineup versus the Baltimore Orioles. Normally, Grisham is in there against right-handed starters, but it appears he'll get a rest day here. Instead, Ben Gamel will cover right field and bat ninth versus right-hander Jack Flaherty. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups accordingly with Grisham on the bench. The expectation is that he'll return after this rest day.
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham (back) was scratched from his team's lineup ahead of a Monday night matchup against the Chicago Cubs. Grisham is dealing with back spasms, which will hold him out of the series opener against the Cubs. The Padres will turn to Fernando Tatis Jr. in center field while Brandon Dixon will play right. Stay tuned to see if Grisham is able to return to action by Tuesday.
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases and a run scored as the team ran away late from the Miami Marlins 9-4 on Tuesday. The southpaw has always shown reverse platoon splits, but Grisham got his knocks versus righties in this one. The center fielder is especially victimizing left-handed pitching for a 317/.429/.585 slash line in 41 at-bats this year. Grisham is a regular player for the Friars, but the two-time Gold Glover is mostly in there for his defensive acumen. The 26-year-old is hitting just .196 with five home runs, 14 RBI, and three stolen bases on 168 at-bats this season. Grisham draws walks at a high 15% clip, but he is not worth rostering in fantasy outside of the deepest of leagues.
Grisham turned heads with his .251/.352/.456 line with 10 each of HR and SB in 2020, but his sophomore campaign wasn't nearly as exciting: .242/.327/.413 with 15 HR and 13 SB in 527 PAs. The biggest culprit seems to be his rate of Brls/BBE, which fell from 11.1% in 2020 to just 5.2% in 2021. His HR/FB was nearly cut in half as a result, from 20% to 12%. Grisham's struggles at the plate also led to a demotion to the bottom third of the order, making it harder for him to compile counting stats as well. That said, there were some positives in the seemingly lost season. Grisham struck out less often with a 22.6 K% against a 25.4% mark in 2020 on the strength of a career-best 87.7 Z-Contact%. He also cut his IFFB% drastically, going from 16% in 2020 to 7.2% last year. His BB% appears poised for positive regression too, as his walk rate fell from 12.3% to 10.2% despite no change in his overall approach. If Grisham can regain some of his lost power while translating his 2021 peripherals into actual production, he should turn a nice profit on his ADP of 128.68.
