Justin Grimm melts down in late loss
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/14) Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm melted down in a key spot Tuesday, in a 4-3 loss to the Cardinals.
Grimm, the seventh pitcher used in the game by the Cubs, struggled with his command in the 12th inning. He retired just one of the five batters he faced, allowing one hit and two walks to load the bases, before hitting Greg Garcia to bring in the winning run.
Grimm has mostly been solid this season, but is now 1-2 on the season with a 3.63 ERA in 17 1/3 innings of work. He has 19 strikeouts and 12 walks on the season.
Justin Grimm plans to be more aggressive
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/14) Cubs reliever Justin Grimm, who's been roughed up in two of his last three outings, said he will be more aggressive in getting ahead of hitters, reports ESPN.com. He's walked nine and given up 13 hits in 13 1/3 innings.
"Pitch sequence was off to some guys,” Grimm told ESPN.com about Monday's performance, when he gave up two earned runs in 2/3 of an inning. “Other than that, I have to stay ahead and get aggressive. When I’m not aggressive, I’m not at my best."
|Acquired from the Rangers in the Matt Garza deal last July, Justin Grimm's future with the Cubs is uncertain, which probably says something about his ability. More than anything else, the Cubs are lacking in long-term rotation options. Grimm doesn't even seem to be part of the discussion. At age 25, he isn't in the mix for a rotation spot this spring, and all 10 of his appearances in a late-season call-up last year came in short relief. He has shaky command for a pitch-to-contact guy and may need to move to the bullpen permanently to avoid becoming organizational depth. Either way, you don't need to pay Grimm a second thought on Draft Day.
