The Oshawa Dodgers are thrilled to announce the
signing of LHP Evan Grills.  Last summer, as a call-up
with the Dodgers at only 15 years of age, Grills was
the youngest player ever to play Intercounty Baseball
sharing the title with Larry Ament, the only other 15
year old to play in the IBL when he pitched for
Listowel back in 1969.  In 5 games with the Dodgers
Grills was 1-2 with a 4.13 ERA over 28.1 innings
pitched with 24 strikeouts.  Grills is expected to be
drafted in the June 2010 Amateur Entry draft and is
currently ranked as the top Canadian in the draft and
33rd best prospect in North America.  In a short time,
Grills has already amassed many career highlights.  He
is the youngest player ever selected to the Ontario Blue
Jays, joining their development program as a 12-year
old in the fall of 2004 and the 18 and under team as a
14-year old in 2006.  He became the youngest member
of the Canadian National Junior team at 14 when
selected in March 2007.  Grills will continue to split his
time this season with the Dodgers and the Canadian
Junior National Team.
