Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Goes yard against Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Friday's extra-inning win over the Astros.

Grossman ended a three-game hitless streak with a homer to center in the bottom of the seventh, his first long ball of the season. Grossman is in a slump after a strong start to the campaign, however, and he has gone 2-for-18 (.111) in his last six games, although both hits have gone for extra bases.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Cooling off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is 1-for-15 with four strikeouts and one walk over his last five games.

He got off to a hot start but is now hitting .233/.324/.300 on the season. Grossman continues to start against all righties and sit against all lefties, but he won't be assured of that setup over the rest of the season if this cold spell continues.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Continues hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in a win over the Angels on Sunday. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt.

The veteran outfielder drew the start for the second straight day and continued to be an agitator to Angels pitching. Factoring in Sunday's tally, Grossman is 3-for-6 with two RBI, a walk and two steals over the last pair of contests heading into Monday's series finale.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Impressive thievery in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and two stolen bases in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Grossman was a one-man wrecking crew for the Athletics on Saturday, with the only asterisk the fact his exploits came on a day when the team scored all of one run. The veteran's opposite-field single in the seventh brought home Stephen Piscotty, with Grossman logging his second steal of the day following the hit. The 30-year-old is slated to again enjoy relatively steady playing time that nevertheless falls short of an everyday role in the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and he'll look to improve on last season's .240/.334/.348 line that featured his lowest figures across the board since 2015.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Hot bat during spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman hit .304 (7-for-23) with a double, a home run, five RBI, six walks and eight runs across 12 Cactus League games before spring training was suspended.

The veteran outfielder projects to once again draw occasional starts at the corner outfield spots against right-handed pitching during the coming season. However, considering the high likelihood of a shortened 2020 campaign, it remains to seen if he'll appear in as much as 85 percent of the Athletics' regular-season contests for a second consecutive year. Grossman would have likely been set for steady playing time had Opening Day unfolded as scheduled March 26 with Stephen Piscotty still dealing with an oblique injury at the time, but Brodie Brazil of NBC Sports Bay Area reports the latter is no longer feeling pain and feels he'll be fully healthy when the season does begin.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Strong spring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman, who went 2-for-3 with a run in a Cactus League loss to the Royals on Tuesday, is hitting .304 across 12 spring games.

The veteran outfielder will play on a one-year, $3.7 million deal in 2020 after avoiding arbitration, and he appears to be laying the foundation for offering the Athletics a good return on that salary this season. Grossman has a double, a home run, five RBI, six walks and eight runs across his 29 spring plate appearances, and he'll be looking to improve on 2019's pedestrian .240/.334/.348 line this coming season while once again providing outfield depth.

January 10, 2020 03:40 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Gets just shy of $4 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman agreed to a one-year, $3.725 million deal with the A's on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

This was Grossman's third and final year as an arbitration-eligible player. He will enter the year providing outfield depth and would likely need an injury to someone ahead of him on the depth chart to get regular playing time.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is in the starting lineup for the American League Wild Card Game against the Rays on Wednesday, batting eighth.

Grossman returns to the starting nine after missing time at the end of the regular season with a sore shoulder. The 30-year-old struggled at the plate in September, recording a .149/.216/.234 slash line with six runs and four RBI in 22 games.

September 29, 2019 02:28 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Dealing with shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman has been dealing with a sore shoulder in recent games, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Grossman has been out of the lineup the last two days, and with the Athletics having clinched home-field advantage for Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game with their win Saturday, he's also sitting out Sunday's regular-season finale. The veteran outfielder has endured a difficult September at the plate (.136 average), and this latest report may help at least partly explain his struggles.

September 23, 2019 02:00 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Rough sledding in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman, who went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday, is hitting just .154 (6-for-39) with three extra-base hits and four RBI in September.

The veteran outfielder also has four walks and six runs over that span, but it's been a month of meager fantasy production for Grossman overall. The 30-year-old has also failed to leave the yard in 31 games, a dubious streak that's capped his overall upside at a critical time of season.

September 11, 2019 01:08 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Scores twice and drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-6 with a pair of runs and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's blowout win over the Astros.

Grossman was one of three teammates to record at least three hits in the 21-7 victory. The night was a significant improvement over what Grossman had done over the previous 11 games, where he'd hit just .161/.235/.226.

September 8, 2019 02:08 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Grossman has turned in an ugly .182/.280/.598 slash line versus left-handed pitching this season, so it's not too surprising that he'll head to the bench with southpaw Daniel Norris serving as Detroit's opening pitcher. Jurickson Profar will replace Grossman in left field.

September 5, 2019 01:08 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Out again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is not in the lineup Thursday against the Angels

Grossman will stick on the bench for a second straight game with another left-hander in Jose Suarez set to serve as the primary pitcher for the Angels. In his place, Chad Pinder is starting in right field and hitting seventh.

Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is not starting Wednesday against the Angels.

Grossman will sit with lefty Patrick Sandoval on the mound for Los Angeles. Chad Pinder starts in right field.

September 1, 2019 07:44 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Out against left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The right-handed Chad Pinder and switch-hitting Jurickson Profar will occupy the two corner outfield spots in the series finale while lefties Grossman and Seth Brown head to the bench with southpaw J.A. Happ on the bump for New York.

August 27, 2019 04:24 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman will be on the bench Tuesday against lefty Mike Montgomery and the Royals.

Grossman continues to sit against most lefties. Seth Brown gets the nod in left field in his absence.

August 24, 2019 06:40 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Heads to bench against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Chad Pinder will start in left field and hit sixth against left-hander Madison Bumgarner. Grossman is 13-for-38 with a home run, eight runs scored, four RBI and five walks in his last 10 starts. The switch-hitting outfielder is slashing just .189/.302/.297 in 43 plate appearances against southpaws.

August 23, 2019 04:20 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Laces three-bagger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk and two runs in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.

Grossman continues to enjoy a solid month at the plate, with Thursday's effort marking the seventh consecutive start in which he's hit safely. The veteran outfielder has an outstanding .409 on-base percentage across 66 plate appearances in August, and he retains a chance to eclipse personal bests in runs, RBI, walks and steals if he continues to log regular playing time for what remains of the season.

August 21, 2019 06:24 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees.

Grossman will give way to Chad Pinder in left field Wednesday with lefty J.A. Happ starting for the Yankees. The outfielder is in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, slashing .320/.393/.520 with one home run and four RBI during that stretch.

August 15, 2019 01:12 PM
Athletics' Robbie Grossman: Laces trio of hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grossman went 3-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run and two runs overall in a win over the Giants on Wednesday.

The switch-hitting outfielder put good wood on the ball in the win, notching his first two extra-base hits of August in the process. Grossman has hit safely in three of his last four games and appears to be rebounding from a 15-game skid that spanned July 22 to Aug. 7, one during which he hit .136 (6-for-44) with 12 strikeouts and saw his season average quickly tumble 18 points to .243.
