Vaughn Grissom

21-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Atlanta Braves
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Grissom began the season with High-A Rome before being promoted to Double-A Mississippi. Atlanta summoned him in early August, and he filled in admirably, posting a .291/.353/.440 line in 156 plate appearances. However, a .163/.250/.163 stretch for two weeks in September cost Grissom his starting job for the last ten games and into the playoffs. Grissom's early success was driven by a high BABIP, so regression was expected. He fanned a little more in the bigs, but that's to be expected. Even though he was mostly a shortstop in the minors, Grissom played second with the Braves. With Ozzie Albies back, Grissom could play shortstop or outfield. Ron Washington worked with Grissom in case the move to short manifests. Grissom is looking at a long and productive career, but his plausible outcomes this season range from a full-time job to struggling in the spring and opening the season with Triple-A Gwinnett.

Loses grip on everyday role
SSAtlanta Braves
September 28, 2022
Grissom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Washington, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
For the third game in a row, the rookie finds himself on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher, an indication that manager Brian Snitker views Grissom as a bench player. Orlando Arcia will pick up another start at the keystone at the expense of Grissom, who has slashed .163/.250/.163 with a 29.2 percent strikeout rate over his last 14 games.
