Grossman went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. The double was Grossman's 21st of the season, which puts him six behind the career-high 27 doubles he recorded back in 2018. While he'll have to finish with a flourish over the last 10 games to reach that mark, the 32-year-old outfielder has already had a nice campaign with 23 home runs and 18 stolen bases, which are both new career bests. His previous career highs in those categories were 11 and nine, respectively, so the production has been a pleasant surprise.
Grossman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Rays. Grossman homered in the ninth inning with the Tigers down 7-1, giving him 23 long balls this season. By comparison, the veteran outfielder had 19 total home runs the past three years combined. He also has 17 stolen bases this season, and the new career bests in home runs and steals have given Grossman more fantasy value than many would have expected coming into 2021.
Grossman went 0-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 10-4 win over Tampa Bay. The outfielder only got on base once Friday, but he was able to be productive anyway. Grossman is now 17-for-22 in stolen base attempts this year, including 2-for-3 across nine games in September. He's slashing .242/.357/.429 with 22 home runs, 63 RBI, 79 runs scored, three triples and 20 doubles as a regular presence in the top half of Detroit's lineup.
Grossman went 4-for-5 with three singles, a solo home run and three runs scored in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Pirates. Grossman was everywhere in Pittsburgh, playing pepper with the Pirates in the early innings before going big with a solo homer off Cody Ponce in the seventh. Over the course of Detroit's three games on the banks of the Allegheny River, Grossman went 7-for-13 with a double and a homer.
Grossman went 1-for-6 with a three-run home run in Friday's 15-5 win over the Reds. He got in on the rout with a seventh-inning blast off Jeff Hoffman. Grossman has stayed productive over the last month-plus, slashing .267/.359/.485 with five of his 21 homers on the season in addition to three steals, 12 RBI and 17 runs in 29 games since the beginning of August.
