Tigers grab big catcher, Grayson Greiner, in third round
Forty years ago, the Tigers took a "big" catcher in the first round, but Friday's third-round pick, Grayson Greiner, is two or three inches taller, 10 pounds heavier than the guy nicknamed "The Big Wheel," Lance Parrish.
The backstop for the University of South Carolina, as well as the USA Baseball collegiate teams, Greiner is listed at 6-foot-5 or 6-6, and 220 pounds.
