Steven Gruver is a 2008 LHP with a 6'2'', 205 lb. frame from Canfield, OH who attends Austintown Fitch HS. He has a strong, well proportioned build that is fairly mature and is especially strong in his lower half. Gruver pitches from a rock/step back delivery and falls off some at release. His fastball was consistent between 87-90 ph and was mostly straight, with some running action at times. Both of Gruver's off speed pitchers are solid, he has very good hand speed on his 74 mph change up and his 73 mph curveball had sharp bite and tight spin at times. Gruver comes at you with three quality pitches and pitches aggressively. He has some fine tuning to do with his delivery but all the elements are there for a high level southpaw. He is an excellent student off the field.
