Bells' Griggs Rated No. 4 Prospect in WCL

09/15/2010 10:50 PMBellingham Bells starter and UCLA right-hander Scott Griggs has been tabbed the No. 4 prospect in the West Coast League by Baseball America, as announced by the national magazine this week in its annual rankings of top summer collegiate baseball league prospects.

Following the Bruins’ run to the College World Series, Griggs went 1-2 with a 3.89 ERA in six starts with the Bells in 2010. The native of Alamo, Calif., registered 32 strikeouts in 27 innings and held the opposition to a .173 batting average. Griggs had nine strikeouts and three walks in 5.0 innings on July 27, and allowed just one run and three hits in six innings to pick up the victory for Bellingham on July 20.

“Scott is already a phenomenal pitcher with lot of potential and he will only continue to develop his craft at UCLA,” said Bells general manager Justin Stottlemyre. “He had an special energy every time he took the mound for us and it was apparent to everyone in the ballpark. It’s no mistake that he’s the second highest rated pitching prospect in the league from this past summer.”

In UCLA's run to the 2010 College World Series, Griggs threw one scoreless innings in the Bruins' regional-opening victory over Kent State (June 4). The right-hander notched one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning of relief versus South Carolina in Game 1 of the finals of the College World Series (June 28).

Griggs followed top prospect Stefan Sabol (c/3b/of, Cowlitz; Fr., Oregon), No. 2 Chase Anselment (c, Kitsap; So., Washington), and No. 3 Jeff Ames (rhp, Wenatchee; So., Washington) on Baseball America’s list of the top West Coast League prospects.

The top-10 list was completed with: No. 5 Mitch Haniger (of, Corvallis; So., Cal Poly), No. 6 Marco Gonzalas (lhp, Wenatchee; Fr., Gonzaga), No. 7 Royce Bolinger (of, Kelowna; Jr., Gonzaga), No. 8 Kerry Jenkins (of, Bend; Sr., San Jose State), No. 9 Collin Bennett (of, Wenatchee; Jr., Hawaii), and No. 10 Dayne Quist (lhp, Kelowna; Jr., UC Davis).
