|Justin Grimm picks up relief win vs. Cards |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/25/14) Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm (3-2) picked up a relief win Friday afternoon at home against the Cardinals.
Grimm allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over a scoreless inning of work in the seventh. In the bottom of the frame, Luis Valbuena launched a two-run go-ahead home run, which proved to be the difference. Grimm owns a 4.87 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 44 1/3 innings of relief this season.
|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."
|Justin Grimm takes loss Monday vs. White Sox |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/6/14) Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm was handed his first loss of the season after giving up two earned runs on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning while striking out two in his team's 3-1, 12-inning loss to the White Sox Monday.
Grimm (1-1) watched the White Sox take the lead on an RBI double, and he provided an insurance run by walking a batter with the bases loaded. It was his second rough outing in his last three games, leaving him with a 3.38 ERA and 16:9 K:BB ratio in 13 1/3 innings.
|Cubs to use 'various options' in save situations |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Sunday he will use Pedro Strop, Blake Parker, Hector Rondon and Justin Grimm in save situations after removing Jose Veras from the closer's role.
"They give me various options," Renteria said, per MLB.com. "You still have to put them in situations where they feel comfortable."
|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.
