Griffin is an athletic and talented 2023 RHP/3B prospect. At 3B, Griffin is aggressive to the ball and plays through the backhand. Continuing to present a low/early glove, working from the ground up, and fielding the ball in front of his body will allow him to be a more consistent fielder. At the plate, Griffin gets his hands back into the drive position and stays balanced through contact. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and using the lower half will allow him to drive the ball to all fields. On the bump, Griffin stays balance over the rubber, separates on time, and gets extension over the front side. Continuing to develop his secondary pitches will elevate his game on the mound. Griffin will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
