Name: Benjamin William Gross
Born: Oct 5, 1996 in Cranbury, NJ
Four-Year College: Duke
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 210 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
  IP ERA WHIP BB/9 SO/9
Career 52.1 4.30 1.34 2.41 8.43
Drafted in the 10th round (299th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in 2019 (signed for $10,000)
The Astros drafted Gross after his senior season at Princeton, where he posted a 4.47 ERA over nine starts with an exceptionally low walk rate (1.20 per nine), but Gross instead transferred to Duke as a grad student and started in the bullpen before working his way into a starting role for the Blue Devils. Gross doesn't have overwhelming stuff and pitches in the upper-80s and low-90s, with his stuff getting into the 92-94 mph range at its best in shorter stints. He also has a fringey, upper-70s curveball but repeats his delivery well and consistently locates his pitches.
