      Indians' Robbie Grossman: Will start season at Triple-A

      Grossman will open the season at Triple-A Columbus, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. The young outfielder was recently informed that he would not be on the Indians' Opening Day roster, but he decided to not exercise his opt-out clause and will remain within the Tribe's organization. He'll provide organizational depth in the outfield that is sorely needed in Cleveland given the injuries to Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall. If the Indians' expected outfielders get off to a bad start this spring, Grossman could be an option for a call-up. That said, his performance at the big league level (.240/.327/.341) makes him a relatively weak fantasy option.

      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.
