Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Attempts to improve batting eye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk bought a pitching machine in the offseason and also took a vision training course, John Lott of the Athletic reports.

At the very least, it's nice to see Grichuk putting in the effort. He has shown very little in terms of growth with his plate discipline and pitch recognition to this point, posting a 29.9 percent strikeout rate and 5.8 percent walk rate through 1,386 big-league plate appearances. He's particularly struggled against sliders (.179 average), and that has been a point of emphasis this winter. The 26-year-old has always had exciting power, and he thinks his offseason eye training and a chance to play regularly with the Blue Jays will lead to a boost in overall performance. Grichuk is also looking to run more with his new club, according to team broadcaster Mike Wilner.

Cardinals' Randal Grichuk: Comes to terms with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Cardinals on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports.

Grichuk finished the 2017 season with a slash line of .238/.285/.473, while hitting 22 home runs and plating 59 baserunners. The 26-year-old has played in over 100 games the past three years for the Redbirds but is expected to see a decline in appearances due to the recent addition of Marcell Ozuna this offseason. Although opportunities will be available, expectations should be limited heading into 2018 as he's set to serve the role of fourth outfielder with Dexter Fowler and Tommy Pham also in the starting lineup.

Cardinals' Randal Grichuk: Wraps up campaign with blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's season-ending 6-1 loss to the Brewers.

Grichuk wrapped up an uneven 2017 in strong fashion, launching his second round tripper of the final six contests. The 26-year-old outfielder spent nearly a month in the minors refining his swing after slashing just .222/.276/.377 over his first 181 plate appearances of 2017. He showed a solid level of improvement upon returning June 25 -- generating a .249/.291/.539 line that included 32 extra-base hits (11 doubles, three triples, 18 homers) -- but he still sported a bloated 30.3 percent strikeout rate that was actually a tick higher than the 29.8 percent figure he'd tallied before the demotion. Grichuk undeniably has power to spare, so his primary offseason goals are likely to center on improving a subpar 68 percent contact rate and 5.9 percent walk rate.

Cardinals' Randal Grichuk: Goes deep in rare start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 2-for-4 with a triple, a homer and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Cubs.

Grichuk hit an RBI triple in the first inning and added a solo homer to make it 8-3 in the seventh. The latter proved to be an important insurance run when Chicago cut the deficit to one with an eighth-inning rally. He hadn't started a game since Sept. 21, but this performance could earn Grichuk more playing time down the stretch.

Cardinals' Randal Grichuk: Squares up 20th bomb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

The long fly gives Grichuk his second consecutive 20-homer showing, and he reached the benchmark in just 106 games. The 26-year-old outfielder has also shown more pop of late with five bombs and a .551 slugging percentage through his past 15 contests (49 at-bats). Unfortunately, Grichuk isn't locked into the lineup daily and is still striking out 29.5 percent of the time. It's probably wise to view him as a boom-or-bust fantasy asset until he proves otherwise.
