  • Braves' Robbie Grossman: Sits after two straight starts

    Grossman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Grossman, whom Atlanta acquired from Detroit on Aug. 1, had picked up starts in three of the past four games in the corner outfield, going 1-for-9 with two walks, a double and an RBI. The switch-hitting Grossman is expected to serve as a short-side platoon option for Atlanta, with Eddie Rosario and Ronald Acuna typically seeing the bulk of the starts at either corner-outfield spot.

  • Braves' Robbie Grossman: Goes to Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Grossman from Detroit on Monday in exchange for left-hander Kris Anglin, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    After one season and part of another as a full-time starter in the outfield for Detroit, Grossman may have to settle for a short-side platoon role as he makes the move to Atlanta. He'll make for a natural partner in left field with the lefty-hitting Eddie Rosario, given the switch-hitting Grossman's success versus southpaws this season. In 96 plate appearances against left-handers, Grossman owns a .999 OPS.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Remains on bench Thursday

    Grossman is out of the lineup for Thursday's game at Cleveland.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Tallies three hits in nightcap

    Grossman went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    It was Grossman's first multi-hit effort since June 26, as the veteran outfielder has struggled all year to string together hits. He's now batting .210 after hitting .239 last season. Although Grossman's average wasn't great in 2021, he did offset that to some degree with a career-best 23 home runs and 20 stolen bases along with a .772 OPS. Grossman has just two long balls, three steals and a .596 OPS in 2022. With the power and speed largely disappearing, the 32-year-old hasn't been able to make much of a fantasy impact.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Playing both ends of twin bill

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Grossman will start in both games of Monday's doubleheader with the Guardians, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    After getting a breather in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Royals, Grossman remained out of the lineup for Sunday's 7-4 loss in the series finale. According to Woodbery, Hinch attributed Grossman's back-to-back benchings to the outfielder's poor career numbers against Royals starter Brady Singer (0-for-10, seven strikeouts). Grossman came off the bench to line out in a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday, so he doesn't appear to have fallen out of favor for an everyday role just yet.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Sits in second straight

    Grossman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    The Tigers haven't indicated that Grossman is dealing with an injury, but his absence from the lineup for a second straight day raises some eyebrows nonetheless. Like many Detroit hitters, Grossman has endured a disappointing 2022 campaign, but since he went 6-for-23 with three doubles and three walks over the team's last six games, he hasn't been the main culprit behind the team's recent struggles. An explanation for Grossman's back-to-back absences could become available later Sunday.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Riding pine Saturday

    Grossman isn't starting Saturday against the Royals.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Homers again Sunday

    Grossman went 2-for-3 with two walks, a three-run home run and four total RBI in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

    Grossman went deep for the second straight day and he got to it right away, taking Dane Dunning deep in the first inning with two runners on. The homers are the first two of the season for the veteran outfielder, who hit a career-best 23 long balls last year. Grossman's previous career high was 11, so the 2021 total looks a little bit like an outlier.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Solo shot in win

    Grossman went 3-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over Texas.

    Grossman launched a solo shot in the first, then scored on an Eric Haase homer in the fourth. The three hits in Saturday's game were Grossman's first since June 13. After playing well in late April and early May, things have not gone well for the outfielder. Although his June batting average is .240, he is slashing just .205/.304/.259 on the season.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Gets breather Wednesday

    Grossman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

    After returning last week from a stint on the injured list due to a neck issue, Grossman fouled a ball off his knee in his first game back and sat out the Tigers' next contest. He rejoined the lineup Sunday and has proceeded to start three straight days while going 2-for-11 with four strikeouts. Grossman appears to have avoided any setbacks with the knee, but he'll get a breather Wednesday in a day game after a night game.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Back in action

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Held out Saturday

    Grossman (knee) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays.

  • Tigers' Robbie Grossman: X-rays negative

    Grossman (knee) underwent X-rays that came back negative Friday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Grossman exited Friday's loss to the Blue Jays in the bottom of the eighth inning after fouling a ball off his right knee, and he's tentatively considered day-to-day after his exams didn't reveal anything too concerning. If the 32-year-old misses any additional time, Harold Castro and Kody Clemens would likely see increased at-bats.
