Average bat speed; noisy hands; strong forearms and wrists; lacks fluidity through zone with swing; drops back shoulder; does not use bottom half; mild load and leg kick; swing can become unbalanced; minimal recognition of spin.
Average raw power; slight leverage; does not barrel ball consistently; hit tool will hinder ability to for in-game power to manifest.
4.50+ home to first times; second gear is better; some agility but speed is not an asset.
Quick and agile behind plate; ability to get low; inconsistent with pitch framing and blocking; chance to be above-average with both; instinctual behind the plate; agressive.
Premium arm strength; extreme carry; low and accurate throws to bases.
Signed as an international free agent in 2012 for $575,000. Grullon has a defense-first profile, which will carry him through the minors. The glove is currently inconsistent, but flashes plus ability. I see a light bat that will struggle in the majors, but the glove is enough for Grullon to stick as an average regular. The risk is still high due to a lack of experience at the higher levels and concerns regarding the bat moving forward.
