      Robbie Grossman: Released by the Astros

      Grossman was released by the Astros on Thursday. Grossman made appearances with the Astros in each of the last three seasons, but the 26-year-old failed to make much of an impact with the big league club. He's now free to join another team during the offseason and it seems likely he will receive a non-guaranteed minor league contract from another club.
