Scouting the Draft: Grant Holmes

Grant Holmes is a HS RHP out of South Carolina.  Holmes has a nice solid pitcher's body at 6'2, 190 lbs.  He has a simple looking, compact delivery.  According to his BLF writeup, His FB sits at 94 with a range of 93-96 MPH.  He also has a hard curve in the low 80's.  He seldom uses his changeup in games.  On video, it looks like he tends to open up the left shoulder early which leads to some armside sail.

BLF has him ranked at #13.  Mack Ade of Mack's Mets has him at #14 in his early mock draft.  Matt Garrioch of Minor League Ball has him at #12.  BA has him at #24 callling him "undersized" and just 6 ft tall, but still gives him credit for a 96 MPH heater.
