2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Granite went to the same Tottenville High School on Staten Island that long-time big leaguers Jason Marquis attended. Upon graduation, Granite went to Seton Hall and was the Twins 14th round pick in 2013. Upon signing, he hit .285 in 61 games at Elizabethton. He advanced to Cedar Rapids in 2014 but was limited to just 25 games due to a couple of long DL stints. It was a frustrating year, but he came back strong in 2015. Listed at 6-1 and 175 pounds, both might be generous. Granite has a very professional approach at the plate where he takes a lot of pitches, gets on base and can wreak havoc on the base paths. He is very fast and think triple out of the batter’s box. he has the speed for centerfield and the arm for left field which would be his future position.
