Grant Sides was drafted in 2012, 12th round, out of Samford.
I have been a fan of his since he was in Lake County back in 2012. He had a very nice 2016, and I don’t see why he wont be an option for the big leagues pen at some point in the second half of 2017.
I was really happy when he made the Eastern League All-Star team this season. I was not able to get him at the ASG–it was a zoo–but I went back the next game and was able to get him. I figure with him in Columbus next season (not to mention that I live in Hawaii), that it would be the last time I would ever get him in-person, so I asked him to inscribe it. He did, and was very cool about it. Made my day.
