MLB Betting News: Texas' Grimm to make debut vs. Houston

Houston (Harrell) at Texas (Grimm) -195 O/U 10.5

Due to a slew of injuries, Texas was forced to call up rookie right-hander Justin Grimm for today's game against Texas. Here are his Minor League numbers. Here is an extended scouting report.

Grimm's repertoire is fastball/curveball/changeup, with the fastball generally being in the low-90s, though it can touch 95-96 mph, and the curveball being a potential plus pitch. His changeup is a work in progress, and like a lot of the Rangers' A-ball pitchers, how that third pitch develops will likely determine where Grimm's future lies. If the changeup can get to a point where it is a viable third pitch, he could have a shot at being a major league starter, although Grimm will also have to improve his command of his other two pitches. If the changeup doesn't develop, the fastball and curve alone would make him a viable relief prospect.
