Who doesn't like a homecoming? North Augusta native and Midland Valley product Taylor Grover has had a special one the last few days. Now, a pitcher with the Greenville Drive.
A year removed from college ball with USC Aiken, Grover threw three innings of shutout ball against the Jackets back on friday. He was a closer for the Pacer program and hums the fastball in at 90 plus. He's now getting use to pitching at the pro level where he's still trying to find his spot in the minors and he knows there's a long road ahead.
"I didn't have a lot of innings and stuff so they ended up moving me to Greenville. I only have five innings but so far it's been real good and I've been working hard so I just have to keep what I've been doing the whole time."
Currently, Grover isn't technically on the Drive roster, making room for one of the Red Soxs top prospects. But they moved him to Greenville so he could see more mound action. Expect he'll get plenty of work in the next few months as he continues to chase the dream every ball player has.
