Interview Conducted By David Saltzer - Senior Writer

Randal Grichuk was another 1st round selection, in 2009, out of Lamar Consolidated High School (Texas).  Grichuk struggled mightily last year amid various injuries which cost him most of the season.  In 2012, however, the 21-year-old outfielder was healthy and he showed the Angels his true potential.  In the first half, Grichuk posted just a .714 OPS with a .296 OBP.  But once July came around, Grichuk began to click on all cylinders.  In the second half of the season, Grichuk hit .336 with a .941 OPS and his outfield defense continued to dazzle. 

Grichuk's notable performance during the 2012 season earned him a spot on the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League.  Expect Grichuk to start the 2013 minor league season with the Arkansas Travelers, patrolling right field.
