    Tyler Grimes continues to struggle at low Class-A Beloit. After starting the year with an abysmal .155 BA at the time the thread was originally posted, he's pulled his average up to a Mendozian .207 in 45 games, similar to the .225 he posted in 42 games at Beloit in his rookie season. He has committed 13 errors in 40 games at SS this season, posting a .930 fielding percentage. Although he's not a huge power thread (2 HRs), almost half his hits have gone for extra bases (14 of 30). His OPS stands at .672. He has added 4 stolen bases, but has been caught three times.

    A couple good games, and Tyler Grimes has pulled his batting average up to .219. He was also selected for the Midwest League All-Star Game with some other guys named Sano and Rosario... 7 Snappers in all made the All-Star Game, with Sano the only starter.

    Since my last update, Grimes is 18 for 74 (.243) with a homer and a couple of steals. Also, he has 5 walks and 20 strikeouts over this period. Although most of his time in the field has been at shortstop (56 games), he has also played 6 games at 2B, 1 game at 3B, and has DH'ed 5 times. Overall, not hitting for average or power, is being thrown out 40% of the time as a base stealer, and is iffy with the glove. He's still just 21, but right now he seems to be more of a suspect than a prospect.

    Icky. Tyler Grimes now carries a .209 BA with an OPS of .649, and is 5-for-35 over his last dozen games. He did add a homer and a SB (plus a CS). He has also committed 23 errors in 80 games, 19 of them at SS.

    a 10 for 64 slump (.156) has Tyler Grimes approaching the Mendoza Line, and his OPS has dipped to .643. Another caught stealing has dropped his stolen base percentage to 54%.
