Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Trent Grisham was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the first round of the 2015 amateur draft with the 15th overall pick. He soon signed for just over $2.7 million and made his pro debut with the AZL Brewers on June 20th. He was known by his birth name of Trent Clark at the time, but changed it legally in 2017 in order to be known by his mother's last name. He gave the Brewers a serious scare, when in his second professional game, he ran headfirst into the fence while trying to make a catch in center field at Maryvale Baseball Park and had to be taken off the field off a stretcher because of fears of a serious neck injury. Luckily, he suffered only a bad bruise on his forehead.

He was first called up to Milwaukee on April 1, 2019 and saw action at all three outfield spots during the final two months of the season, when the Brewers managed to secure a place in the postseason as the second wild card team in the National League. He started in right field during the last two weeks of the season, after MVP candidate Christian Yelich went down with a knee injury, and he hit .231 with 6 homers and 24 RBIs in 51 games. He started the Wild Card Game in right field and went 0 for 3 with a walks and a run scored, but was the goat of his team's loss to the Washington Nationals as he misplayed a single by Juan Soto in the 8th inning, letting the ball slide under his glove and allowing two runs to score as Milwaukee lost the game, 4-3. On November 27th, he was traded to the San Diego Padres, alongside P Zach Davies, in return for P Eric Lauer and IF Luis Urias.

He won the starting centerfield job with the Padres in 2020 and hit quite well. On August 22nd, he had the first three-homer game of his career in a 13-2 win over the Houston Astros.
