Player Outlook
Jordan Groshans made his MLB debut in 2022 and had a .619 OPS in 17 games for Miami, but he didn't make it back to the big leagues last season. The 24-year-old spent the full campaign at Triple-A Jacksonville, where he posted a disappointing .244/.344/.341 slash line in 125 contests. He's a high-contact hitter with good plate discipline (17.4 percent strikeout rate, 12.7 percent walk rate last year), but he has just 23 home runs and a .108 ISO in 374 games during his minor-league career. The lack of pop makes Groshans an unattractive option at both corner infield spots, and he may need a strong rebound in 2024 in order to sniff the big leagues again.

  • Yankees' Jordan Groshans: Sent to Triple-A

    Groshans was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. Groshans was designated for assignment Wednesday, and he will now report to Triple-A. The third baseman joined the Yankees organization Feb. 13 after he was DFA'd by the Marlins, and he'll now look to prove himself with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in order to earn a call-up to the major-league roster in 2024.

  • Yankees' Jordan Groshans: Loses 40-man roster spot

    Groshans was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Wednesday. He'll exit the 40-man roster in favor of Jahmai Jones, who was scooped up via waivers. Groshans was a waiver claim himself just a couple weeks ago and now could be on the move again.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: DFA'd by Fish

    The Marlins designated Groshans for assignment Tuesday. Groshans will lose his spot on the 40-man roster following the acquisition of Jonah Bride from Oakland on Tuesday. After making his MLB debut in 2022, Groshans spent all of last season with Triple-A Jacksonville, where he slashed .244/.341/.331 with 61 RBI in 528 plate appearances. The 24-year-old will presumably return to Jacksonville to begin 2024.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Takes live BP on Tuesday

    Groshans (shoulder) took batting practice Tuesday morning in Marlins camp, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. It's another step in the right direction for Groshans, who banged up his left shoulder earlier this month in a Grapefruit League game. The 23-year-old will seemingly be ready for the beginning of the season at Triple-A Jacksonville.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Battling sore shoulder

    Groshans is dealing with a sore shoulder, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Groshans made a pair of diving plays Friday and visited a doctor about his shoulder the next day. While that may not bode well, a specific diagnosis beyond "soreness" has yet to emerge. Groshans could win a bench spot this spring after appearing in 17 big-league games last season, though the recent addition of Yuli Gurriel could hurt his chances.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Getting work at first base

    Groshans has been getting regular work at first base during Grapefruit League games to begin spring training, improving his odds of breaking camp on the 26-man roster, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. The Marlins don't have an established backup to Garrett Cooper at first base, so if Groshans shows he can handle the position, he could work his way into a bench role to begin the season. The 23-year-old's prospect status has dimmed the last couple of years as his projected power has never materialized, but after being acquired from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline last year, he batted a solid .262 through his first 17 big-league games. Groshans came up through Toronto's system as a shortstop, and he could wind up filling a multi-position utility role in Miami.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Moves into utility role

    Groshans is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Atlanta, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Groshans started in six of the Marlins' past seven games at third base and went 6-for-23 with no extra-base hits, one walk and three runs. Now that Joey Wendle is healthy again to close out the season, Groshans may handle more of a utility role during the Marlins' three-game series with Atlanta.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Takes seat Saturday

    Groshans isn't starting Saturday against the Nationals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Groshans started the last four games and went 3-for-14 with a run, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout. Jon Berti will take over at the hot corner and lead off Saturday.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: First three career hits

    Groshans went 3-for-3 in Wednesday's 6-1 loss against the Phillies. After going hitless in three at-bats in his career debut Tuesday, Groshans turned things around with a three-hit effort Wednesday. The rookie peppered his hits across the outfield, which is in line with his approach in Triple-A this season where he hit more balls the other way than he did to the pull side. The balanced approach likely contributed to his .301 average over his last 133 plate appearances in the minors and may make him a sneaky source of batting average down the stretch if he sees regular playing time.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Hitless in debut

    Groshans went 0-for-3 in his major-league debut Tuesday as the Phillies beat the Marlins, 2-1. Groshans batted eighth and played third base in his first big-league game, flying out twice and grounding out once. Miami acquired the former top prospect in a deal that sent Zach Pop and Anthony Bass to Toronto before the trade deadline. Since joining Triple-A Jacksonville in August, Groshans has posted a .301/.399/.416 slash line with two homers and a 19:19 BB:K. He'll likely serve in a utility role down the stretch for the Marlins.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Making MLB debut Tuesday

    Groshans' contract was selected from Triple-A Jacksonville and he is starting Tuesday against the Phillies, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Groshans was traded from Toronto to Miami at the trade deadline for big-league relievers. He has a very strong track record of patience and an ability to make frequent contact in the minors, but Groshans has struggled to tap into his raw power in games. The No. 12 overall pick in 2018 hit .301/.398/.416 (123 wRC+) with two home runs and as many walks as strikeouts (19) in 31 games at Triple-A Jacksonville. Since the trade, he played 12 games at third base, 10 games at shortstop and nine games at second base, so he could play all over the infield over the final three weeks of the season.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Set to be called up Tuesday

    Groshans is expected to be called up by the Marlins on Tuesday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports. Groshans posted an .814 OPS over 31 games with Triple-A Jacksonville after being acquired from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline, and it appears that earned him his first trip to the big leagues.

  • Marlins' Jordan Groshans: Traded to Miami for relievers

    Groshans was traded from the Blue Jays to the Marlins on Tuesday in exchange for Anthony Bass and Zach Pop, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. This was something of a make-or-break year for Groshans to maintain his prospect stock, and so far he has come up short. A 22-year-old shortstop who could also end up at third base, Groshans has hit .250/.348/.296 with one home run in 279 plate appearances at Triple-A. His plate skills are very strong, but despite standing a muscular 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Groshans has been unable to tap into impact game power thus far.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Power missing in action

    Groshans is hitting .291 through 33 games for Triple-A Buffalo, but he has just a single home run and two steals. He has just four doubles, too, so even though he's been loading up on singles, Groshans has struggled mightily to hit for extra bases. In fact, his OBP (.394) is well higher than his slugging percentage (.355). Groshans' 19:18 BB:K is terrific, but he at least showed a little bit of pop at his previous minor-league stops. A career-high 47.3 percent groundball rate can likely absorb some of the blame here, as it's hard to do much slugging when you're not elevating the ball, but Groshans isn't exactly an exit-velocity superstar either. It's hard to see him as a third baseman in the big leagues with this lack of power, but he doesn't have the defensive acumen to be an everyday shortstop (which is where he's played the majority of 2022). He has first-round pedigree and has long been a well-respected prospect, but right now Groshans isn't looking the part of a guy who's going to make a big fantasy impact.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Set for Triple-A debut

    Groshans will make his debut for Triple-A Buffalo on Friday. He was dealing with an oblique injury in spring training and was then sent to Single-A Dunedin, which is where the Jays' spring training complex is, to ramp up in games. Groshans notched four hits in five games at Single-A and is now ready to get his first taste of Triple-A. He is capable of playing all over the infield and was reportedly very impressive this spring before getting injured.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Active at Low-A Dunedin

    Groshans (groin) has joined Low-A Dunedin, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. Groshans suffered an oblique strain late in camp and hasn't yet appeared in any minor-league games this year. He'll build up in Dunedin since the Blue Jays' extended spring training complex is located there, but he should head to Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo at some point.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Heating up at Double-A

    Groshans is batting .318 (14-for-44) over his last 12 games for Double-A New Hampshire with a home run, six doubles and a 9:8 BB:K. The 21-year-old has had trouble finding in-game power this summer, and his homer Wednesday was only his sixth in 66 games this season and first since June 25. Groshans has maintained good habits during that power drought though, and he's finally beginning to see better results. Toronto's No. 1 fantasy prospect should be viewed as the organization's third baseman of the future following the trade of Austin Martin and Cavan Biggio's washout 2021, and Groshans is putting himself in position to make his big-league debut sometime next season.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: No homers since late June

    Groshans hasn't hit a home run for Double-A New Hampshire since a two-homer effort back on June 25, though he's still managed to hit .294/.374/.412 with 10 doubles and an 11:18 BB:K in the 25 ensuing games. His lack of home-run power is certainly concerning, but Groshans has kept hitting nonetheless, and he's cut down his strikeout rate to a noteworthy degree in the process. The Fisher Cats also play in a park that typically favors pitchers. Of course, as a guy who has minimal speed and is expected to land at third base in the majors, he's going to have to hit the ball out of the yard way more often. Groshans has only five homers on the season, and if he doesn't ultimately find a way to tap into his raw power, he'll run the risk of falling into more of a utility-type profile.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Dealing with sore back

    Groshans hasn't played at Double-A New Hampshire since May 18 due to mild lower-back soreness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. The Blue Jays don't appear to be overly concerned about the injury and believe that with some extra rest, Groshans will be able to avoid an extended absence. The 21-year-old dabbled at both shortstop and third base through his first 11 games with New Hampshire, batting .244 with no home runs and no stolen bases while striking out 13 times in 48 plate appearances (27.1 percent).

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Groshans: Will split time at shortstop

    Groshans will split his time between shortstop and third base for Double-A New Hampshire, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports. The Jays want to continue the 21-year-old's development at short, but with Austin Martin on the Fisher Cats as well, Groshans will shift to the hot corner when Martin is at the six. Third base is still the most likely home in the majors for Groshans, but at the very least, this suggests the organization isn't sold on Bo Bichette sticking at shortstop in the long term.
