Grover serves notice with strong senior season

BOSTON -- Taylor Grover dominated during the 2013 season at South Carolina-Aiken, and the Red Sox took notice.

Boston selected the closer in the 10th round of the Draft on Friday as the 293rd overall pick.

Grover recorded just a 0.92 ERA in 29 1/3 innings during the 2013 season, notching a 5-0 record and picking up 11 saves. Opposing batters hit .154 against him.

Not much is known about Grover, as he has a limited body of work, but he was labeled a "hard thrower" by the Augusta Chronicle. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds. Grover is a junior and could return for his final season of eligibility
