Robbie Grossman News
Detroit Tigers outfielder Robbie Grossman stole his 20th base of the year in Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He now has his first 20-20 season of his career as he has a career-high 23 homers on the season. Going into this season, the 32-year-old Grossman had never topped 11 home runs or nine stolen bases in a single season. Even though his batting average this year (.239) is down from previous years (career .250 average), this has still been by far the best offensive season of his career. He has showed great plate discipline in 2021 with a 14.6% walk rate that ranks in the 97th percentile of the league.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Robbie Grossman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the team's 9-3 loss to his former team, the Oakland Athletics, on Tuesday. The home run was his 20th of the year and it marks the first 20 home run season of his career. His previous career-high in home runs was 11, which he set with the Minnesota Twins in 2016. Grossman is slashing .238/.355/.423 this year with 15 stolen bases, 58 RBI and 70 runs to go along with his 20 home runs. He has a lot of value in OBP leagues and in leagues that reward walks. His 14.4% walk rate ranks in the 97th percentile.
Detroit Tigers outfielder Robbie Grossman will get a routine day off on Monday afternoon versus the Minnesota Twins. Grossman has been in stuck in a bad slump over the past two weeks and has just nine hits over his last 44 at-bats with one home run, two RBI and a pair of stolen bases. Replacing Grossman on Monday will be outfielder Derek Hill. Hill has really struggled offensively and has just nine hits over his last 50 at-bats. Hill will bat ninth this afternoon versus Bailey Ober and can be avoided in all formats.
Positioned at the top of the Detroit Tigers batting order, outfielder Robbie Grossman enjoyed a highly productive breakout year in his first season in the Motor City. Grossman logged 671 plate appearances for A.J. Hinch's team, hitting .239 with a .357 on-base percentage, 23 home runs, and 20 stolen bases. He was more valuable in leagues where on-base percentage was part of the scoring, but it was a quality fantasy season nonetheless. Only nine other players collected at least 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Grossman should continue to be productive next season for the Tigers thanks to his on-base skills, over-the-fence power, and stolen base potential. Another 20-20 season certainly isn't out of reach, and he could eclipse his 88 runs scored from last season by a considerable margin with Javier Baez hitting behind him. Eventual Major League debuts by Spencer Torkelson and Riley Greene should only help add to Grossman's fantasy value as a table-setter near the top of the Tigers' lineup. The outfielder's ADP per NFBC is 172 at the moment. If you can draft him somewhere in that range between now and Opening Day you'll be well on your way to building a successful fantasy roster.
