Grant was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 3rd round of the 1974 amateur draft. He played for the Cincinnati Reds (1978-81), Houston Astros (1982-84), Kansas City Royals (1985), and San Francisco Giants (1986-91). He batted and threw right handed.

Grant was an All-Star in 1979.

In 1987 he was 9th in the National League with 13 wins.

In a 14-season career, Grant posted a 98-103 record with 783 strikeouts and a 4.02 ERA in 1739-2/3 innings pitched.

Grant's nickname is "Buffy."

Grant may or may not have lifted his "bio" from Mike LaCoss.
