Grossman will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and bat cleanup Sunday against the Rangers, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. While Tyler Austin appears to be the Twins' preferred option at DH, Grossman will enter the lineup for a third straight game and looks to have a clear path to playing time in the short term with left fielder Eddie Rosario (quadriceps) still hurting. Rosario has yet to resume baseball activities and seems likely to miss additional action, so Grossman should remain a fixture in the lineup during the upcoming week.
Grossman will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Athletics, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He'll draw into the lineup for a resting Eddie Rosario, giving Grossman his fifth start in eight games since returning from the 10-day disabled list. For the third consecutive season, Grossman boasts a double-digit walk rate (11 percent), but that's about the only skill he brings to the table. He has mustered only four home runs and no steals in 333 plate appearances and has graded out as a below-average defender, which could leave him on the outside looking in for work in Minnesota's outfield rotation over the final month of the campaign.
The Twins reinstated Grossman (hamstring) from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports. Grossman rejoins the big club after wrapping up a three-game rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Rochester. Though he's back on the active roster, Grossman won't re-enter the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Tigers, as the hot-hitting Tyler Austin will draw a fourth consecutive start.
Grossman (hamstring) will likely be activated from the disabled list ahead of Sunday's game against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Grossman showed no ill effects from the hamstring injury during his rehab assignment, going 5-for-11 with a double in three games with Triple-A Rochester. He is expected to take Johnny Field's roster spot, and Grossman may play semi-regularly in right field for a stretch with Max Kepler shifted to center.
Grossman (hamstring) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Grossman has been sidelined since Aug. 6 with a hamstring injury. He's expected to make multiple appearances for the Red Wings before being cleared to rejoin the Twins, leaving his exact return date up in the air. The 28-year-old has hit .253/.332/.365 through 92 games this season.
