Trent Grisham News
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday for a matchup with the Chicago Cubs and right-hander Keegan Thompson. The outfielder wasn't in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup between the two teams but will hit eighth on Wednesday and start in center field. In 119 plate appearances this season, Grisham is batting .149 with a .265 on-base percentage and a home run. He has yet to face Thompson at the Major League level.
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham will be out of the starting lineup for the first time this season on Monday as the team lines up to face the Cincinnati Reds. Jose Azocar is getting the start in center field and batting ninth in the game. Meanwhile, Austin Nola is slotting in at designated hitter and leading off for the game. Grisham hasn't been providing much of a spark as the team's primary leadoff hitter so far this year. He's drawn seven walks over 11 games, but he's slashed just .146/.271/.244 and he's only scored two runs.
San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham had a bit of an underwhelming showing at the plate during Spring Training this year. The 25-year-old put together a .229/.308/.343 slash line with just two extra-base hits (a home run and a double) over 13 games. Grisham took a big step back last year. He flashed a lot of potential in his first year with the Padres in 2020, when he posted an .808 OPS and compiled 10 home runs and 10 stolen bases in just 59 games. Last year, however, he had a .740 OPS, 15 home runs and 13 stolen bases over 132 games. He's likely to at least start the season as the Padres' leadoff hitter, which makes him alluring for fantasy purposes in and of itself. He's ranked No. 146 overall in the RotoBaller rankings.
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.
