Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Keeps producing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Mariners.

Grossman homered and drove in three for the second consecutive game, and he now has multiple hits in three straight contests. His primary production Thursday came on a two-run homer in the sixth inning -- his eighth long ball of the season. Through 262 plate appearances, Grossman has maintained a .241/.355/.421 line with 31 runs scored, 31 RBI and eight stolen bases.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Keeps rolling Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

Grossman had two doubles in Tuesday's contest and kept rolling Wednesday. The veteran outfielder now has seven home runs this season and has been a steady contributor for the Tigers, primarily serving as the team's leadoff hitter and delivering a solid .354 on-base percentage.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Doubles twice, scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

The Tigers are just 25-35, but Grossman has been a reliable veteran for the team. He has a solid .353 on-base percentage as the primary leadoff hitter and has also contributed eight stolen bases, which is just one off his career high. Grossman should continue to play nearly every day in Detroit, at least until the organization potentially decides to get younger players into the lineup more frequently.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Grossman will get a breather for the second Sunday in a row, paving the way for Derek Hill to join Akil Baddoo and Nomar Mazara in the Detroit outfield. Baddoo will step in as the leadoff man in place of Grossman, whose .347 on-base percentage paces all Tigers with at least 110 plate appearances on the season.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Sitting series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

This appears to be just a normal day off for the veteran outfielder, as he has not been reported to be dealing with any sort of injury. He figures to be a pinch-hit option for manager A.J. Hinch as the Tigers look to finish off the sweep of the Yankees.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Cranks walkoff home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run scored and a walk in the 3-2 win Friday over the Yankees.

With the Tigers down to their last out in extra innings, Robbie Grossman slammed a two-run home run off Justin Wilson to win the game. The 31-year-old is a rare bright spot in a lackluster offensive lineup, leading the Tigers in home runs (six), RBI (24), runs (26) and steals (eight). Grossman has good plate discipline, walking 35 times which is good for fourth in all of baseball. In 220 plate appearances, he is slashing .253/.377/.427.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Hits fifth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Grossman's ninth-inning home run made the game interesting and continued a good stretch for the veteran outfielder, who is batting .333 with two home runs and nine runs scored across his last 10 appearances. Grossman should continue to lead off for the Tigers and provide respectable fantasy numbers.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Records three hits in Friday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Friday's win over the Royals.

Grossman has been a steady leadoff hitter for the Tigers, as he's reaching base at a .383 clip. He was also caught stealing for the first time this season in eight attempts, so he's given the team an unexpected boost of speed as well. Grossman isn't the flashiest fantasy option, but he does have some appeal in deeper leagues and OBP formats.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Sets table in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-4 with two walks, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-8 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

The switch hitter continues to thrive atop the Tigers' order. Grossman has a six-game hitting streak going and has reached base in 10 straight games, posting a .375/.480/.700 slash line over the latter stretch with seven extra-base hits (three doubles, two triples and two homers), three steals, nine runs and 11 RBI.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Launches fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Cubs.

He went back-to-back with Jake Rogers in the sixth inning to account for Detroit's only offense. Grossman extended his modest hitting streak to five games with the blast, his fourth homer of the year, and he's hitting .450 (9-for-20) with a double, two triples and two long balls over that stretch.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Reaches base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI, two runs scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Twins.

Grossman has two three-hit performances over his last five games, though he's also gone hitless twice during that span. The veteran outfielder has reached base in six of his last seven games and has reach at least twice four times during that stretch.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Three hits, three RBI in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-3 with two walks, a double and three RBI in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Red Sox. He also stole two bases.

Grossman certainly did his part from atop the lineup, but the Tigers dropped another one to fall to 8-22. His aggressiveness on the bases has been a pleasant surprise, as Grossman now has six stolen bases this season, which is only three shy of his career high. The veteran outfielder should continue to see regular playing time in the short term, though he's a candidate for a reduced role at some point if Detroit wants to get a better look at some younger players.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Swipes third bag of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Royals.

Grossman doubled to kick off the third inning and later scored Detroit's first run of the day on an RBI single. He's just 4-for-26 over his last eight contests with one homer and three RBI, though it was a good sign to see the 31-year-old reach base twice Monday afternoon.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Blasts two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.

Grossman's fifth-inning blast off Royals starter Mike Minor accounted for all of the Tigers' runs Friday. The 31-year-old Grossman has two homers, seven RBI, six runs scored and a pair of stolen bases across 79 plate appearances. He's slashing .226/.380/.355 in a near-everyday role.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Three hits, homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-4 with a home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's loss to Cleveland.

Grossman was a productive presence at the top of the order for the Tigers, and he delivered the team's first run of the game when he took Aaron Civale deep in the seventh inning. The veteran outfielder entered this game batting just .125, but that average was boosted to .250 after his best game of the campaign to date. Even if the average remains a bit low, Grossman remains a threat at the top of the order due to his impressive eye at the plate -- he has nine walks in seven games thus far.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is starting in right field and batting leadoff in Saturday's game against Cleveland.

Grossman received his first off day of the season Friday and returns to the lineup for the Saturday evening contest. Despite batting just .125, the veteran outfielder has a solid .440 OBP thanks to the nine walks he's drawn in just six games.

April 10, 2021 03:24 PM
Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is not in Friday's lineup against Cleveland, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The veteran switch hitter is batting .125 through six games but thanks to a 6:9 K:BB, his OBP sits at a sparkling .440. Akil Baddoo is starting in left field while JaCoby Jones starts in center.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Records first two hits Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-inning win over the Twins.

After batting leadoff in the first four games of the season, Grossman bumped down to sixth with Minnesota starting the left-handed J.A. Happ. Grossman responded with his first two hits of the year, though he's reached base plenty, as he now has nine walks in just five games. The Tigers may continue to use Niko Goodrum as the leadoff hitter against southpaws like they did Tuesday, but Grossman figures to remain atop the order against righties.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Shifts down in order versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman will start in right field and bat sixth Tuesday against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

With the Tigers facing a lefty (J.A. Happ) for the first time this season, manager A.J. Hinch has elected to push Grossman down in the batting order in favor of Niko Goodrum, who has recorded six hits in eight career at-bats against the Twins southpaw. Like Goodrum, Grossman is a switch-hitter who hits lefties better than righties, but Goodrum owns a career 131 wRC+ in those matchups compared to Grossman's 110 wRC+. The Tigers could end up sticking with a leadoff platoon as a result, with Grossman getting the nod atop the lineup against right-handers. Although he's yet to record a hit through Detroit's first four games, Grossman has drawn eight walks, resulting in a terrific .500 OBP.

Tigers' Robbie Grossman: Steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 0-for-1 with three walks and a stolen base in Thursday's 3-2 win over Cleveland.

The left fielder hit leadoff to begin the season and displayed his propensity for getting on base. Grossman is not known for outstanding base-stealing numbers, having never swiped more than nine bags in a season, but he was only thrown out once in nine attempts last year with Oakland. The leadoff spot in Detroit would seem to be his spot to lose.
