Zack Granite - OF MIN

Recommended Posts

Just called up by the Twins. If you are looking for SB, he could be worth an add.

He's extremely intriguing, even if his success rate for steals was a little lower than you would like in AAA given his speed, but why?  Kepler is obviously not going anywhere as a regular vs RHP, I'd be shocked if they give up on Buxton in CF yet, and Rosario has been solid in LF.  Grossman has been fairly bad after a solid start, but I'm still finding it hard to see a regular role for Granite to make the call-up serve a purpose.

 

If he had a clear role, I would have rushed to pick him up with the state of SB's these days and his contact ability, but it's hard to get excited yet.

I guess we'll see how he fairs at the MLB level. Only reason I picked him up was that I'm in a 20 team dynasty CATs league that rosters 30 minors per. team so, if your in a deep league I'd say it would be a good time to grab him.

I just love players like him, plus hit tools, elite speed and elite plate discipline (walks the same amount as he strikes out = high OBP which = to more SB opportunities...but I agree, theres just no ABs for him unless they are making moves by the deadline (or looking to include Granite in a deal) since they are only 2 GB 1st place in the AL central.
