San Diego Padres outfielder Trent Grisham

Padres’ outfielder Trent Grisham has certainly had better seasons, but he seems to be returning to his potential this month.

He started this season in April hitting .153/.274/.250. May wasn’t much better for him, but in June, he started proving his potential with much better hitting (.230/.320/.379).

His season stats are currently the lowest they’ve been, but his June numbers isolated are similar to what he typically produces each season.

Between April and May, he contributed 11 runs total. In June alone, he’s contributed 18. He certainly has a lot of work to do, but he’s emerging above team average and noticeably beginning to help the San Diego’s weak offense.
