This is Grimmett's second year in the organization, having spent 2008 in Greeneville, throwing 31.2IP (meaning he threw 10 more innings in 2009 than in 2008). His K/9 ratio went up from 5.1 to 6.0, but his BB/9 rate doubled from 1.7 to 3.5. And his hits/9 jumped from 11.7 to 13.6, as well. Grimmett also had 11HBP and four wild pitches. As you can see from the splits, June started out okay, but then the wheels fell off. So 2010 will be a big year for Zach, but let's keep in mind that he still will only be 20 on Opening Day 2010.
