Grossman was added to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners after Stephen Piscotty was scratched for undisclosed reasons. Laureano will start against a southpaw (Yusei Kikuchi) for just the third time this season. He'll bat eighth and play left field, with Chad Pinder sliding over to right.
Grossman will sit for the second straight game Saturday against Seattle as the Athletics face another lefty in Yusei Kikuchi. Grossman has started against a lefty just twice all season. As usual, Chad Pinder will take over in left field in his absence.
Grossman isn't starting Friday night against Seattle. Grossman will take a seat after starting each of the last three games. Chad Pinder draws the nod in left field and is batting second with Grossman out of the lineup.
Grossman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers. Grossman will take a seat in the series finale while lefty masher Chad Pinder (career 124 wRC+ versus southpaws) enters the lineup in the outfield with lefty Gregory Soto on the hill for Detroit. Though he's riding a four-game hitting streak, Grossman is batting just .226 on the season and doesn't offer much power even when things are going well at the plate.
Grossman was added to the lineup Saturday against the Tigers after Khris Davis was scratched for undisclosed reasons. Grossman had been expected to sit as usual against lefty Matthew Boyd, but there was a change in plans. He'll bat sixth and play left field.
