atlanta brave Infield prospect. called upon von grissom Before Wednesday’s game against the Boston Red Sox.

Grissom will make his major league debut at age 21, same age as rookie phenom Michael Harris Second.

The future star is currently a shortstop, but is also capable of playing second and third base.

The Braves don’t even know what position he’ll settle in, but for now, they’ll hire one of the best coaches in the business to help develop him as a defensive shortstop: Ron Washington,

“Talking to people about von Grissom: He’s a hitter, not a slugger, who evolved into hitting for more power. He’s 6-3, so the Braves have always understood that his future isn’t in the SS. Maybe. But while he is a better hitter than a defender, he will now get a chance to work with Ron Washington,” Justin Toscano tweeted.

Washington will help Grison improve as a fielder

In fact, Grissom is a prolific hitter: In 22 Double-A games, he’s lacking .363/.408/.516; And there are already 14 home runs between High-A and Double-A.

It is clear that he has not grown physically and as a player, so he has not yet reached the pinnacle when it comes to raw power.

As he gets older, his chances of being a shortstop in the future will become less.

However, the Braves will have Washington working with him.

Washington is known as a coach magician when it comes to fielding.

he helped a young man Eric Chavez And Miguel Tejda During his time with the Oakland Athletics at the turn of the millennium, before starting a managerial career that took him to two straight World Series with the Texas Rangers in 2010 and 2011.

He returned to coaching in mid-2010, and has cemented his already good reputation when it comes to fielding.

Grissom may or may not stick to shortstop, but he’s sure he’ll have a great coach in Washington.
