|Justin Grimm unsure about role |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/24/13) Cubs pitcher Justin Grimm isn't sure what his role will be with his new team, according to MLB Network Radio.
Grimm said he was glad to be with the club, and thinks it will be a good fit. While he expressed some disappointment about being sent to Triple-A Iowa, Grimm understands the move. He admitted, however, that the Cubs did not specify his role in the minors. Grimm was used primarily as a starter with the Rangers this season, but there are some scouts who think he could thrive in the bullpen.
Grimm had a 6.37 ERA in 89 innings prior to the trade.

(7/23/13) Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer went on MLB Network Radio Tuesday to explain why pitcher Justin Grimm, who was acquired from Texas Monday, will report to Triple-A Iowa.
"He was kind of rushed along," Hoyer said. "We want to get him some innings in Iowa, get some Triple-A innings under his belt. We like him in the rotation, but if he goes to the bullpen, he has a plus fastball, too."

(7/22/13) The trade sending Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers has been finalized, Yahoo! Sports reports Monday. The Cubs sent Garza to the Rangers for infielder Mike Olt, minor league pitcher C.J. Edwards, starting pitcher Justin Grimm and a player-to-be-named-later.
Grimm has the most major-league experience with 22 appearances and 19 starts with the Rangers over the last two seasons. He was 7-7 this year with a 6.37 ERA over 17 starts with 68 strikeouts over 89 innings. Grimm should jump into the Cubs' rotation in Garza's spot.
Olt has played in 16 big-league games, all came last season. He hit .152 in 33 at-bats with five RBI. The 24-year-old was batting .213 in 65 games with Triple-A Round Rock.
Edwards, 21, was playing with Class A Hickory but has shown loads of potential. He's 13-5 over two pro seasons with a 1.68 ERA. He has 122 strikeouts with Hickory this season over 18 starts and 93 1/3 innings.
