Trent Grisham was leading the Double-A Biloxi Shuckers in home runs before he was promoted.
The 2015 first-round draft pick by the Milwaukee Brewers accelerated his home run rate when he reached Triple-A. He hit home runs in his first three games, all on the road, with the San Antonio Missions.
Friday night he played centerfield and hit his first home run at Wolff Stadium, the Missions’ home field. That was one of only four Missions hits in a 9-2 loss to the Round Rock Express.
The Fort Worth native is batting .286 with four home runs after seven games with the Missions.
Grisham, a 6-foot, 205-pound left-hander, played 63 games with the Shuckers this season and hit .254 with 13 home runs.
