Brewers calling up breakout OF prospect Grisham

Breakout outfield prospect Trent Grisham will join the Brewers and be in the starting lineup for Thursday's game at the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell told reporters.

Grisham, a former first-round pick, played his way onto the Brewers with a standout season at Double-A and Triple-A.

A big outfield bat, he is arguably the Brewers' top prospect.

With Biloxi (AA) and San Antonio (AAA) this season, Grisham is batting a combined .300 with 26 HRs and 71 RBIs.
