Walter on Roberts
"Griff has made a huge jump from last season to this season. He features a fastball that gets up to 95 with great sink, and a breaking ball that is thrown with velocity and depth. With two plus pitches and the ability to strike people out, he is tailor made to close. If Supple or McSweeney emerges as a potential closer, Griffin could also find himself in the weekend rotation down the stretch."
