Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Quiet pre-swing, mild load with a leg kick used for timing. Above-average bat speed and plus barrel control. Stays balanced through swing. Has a quick trigger that can catch up to velocity.
Power 60 Plus raw power, ball jumps off of the bat. Has the ability to hit with power to all fields. Power will play more in game with physical maturity.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Current average foot speed, will play down to fringe-average with maturity. Possesses a choppy, upright running style. Athletic and with good instincts, can be a decent base runner in the future but speed will not be part of his game. 4.33 clock on home to first.
Glove 50 Jays will keep him at shortstop as long as they can but will eventually find a home at third base. Lacks lateral quickness to excel at the six. Good instincts and soft hands, will be a capable defender at the hot corner.
Arm 55 Plenty of arm strength for either position on the left side.

Groshans has the look of an older, more polished college bat not a teenager playing in his first full season assignment. He's big and strong with plenty of projection left in the tank. The bat has potential to be a middle of the lineup type that is a rare mix of contact and power. That offensive potential will allow for an eventual move off the six. Profiles as a plus starter at the major league level that is an occasional All-Star.
