Robbie Grossman News
Detroit Tigers outfielder Robbie Grossman (knee) is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Grossman, who recently returned from the injured list, left the game early on Friday after fouling a ball off his knee. Luckily, X-rays came back negative, but he'll miss at least one game as a result. The 32-year-old veteran switch-hitter just hasn't gotten into a groove this year, as he's slashing .201/.312/.243 and is still searching for his first long ball in 144 at-bats. Grossman has added 10 RBI, 13 runs scored and two stolen bases. With Grossman out Saturday, Victor Reyes is in center field and is hitting leadoff against Jays right-hander Kevin Gausman. Reyes is also searching for his first homer of the year, but he's hitting .292 in 24 at-bats for Detroit.
Detroit Tigers outfielders Robbie Grossman (neck) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps) could start minor league rehab assignments early next week. Grossman has been on the injured list for around a week, and he could rejoin the Tigers at some point next week, barring any setbacks on his rehab assignment. The 32-year-old switch-hitter just hasn't been able to get off the ground in 141 at-bats this year, as he's hitting just .199/.311/.241 with no home runs, 10 RBI, 13 runs scored and two stolen bases in 42 games. Reyes went on the IL on May 16 with a right quadriceps strain. The 27-year-old was hitting .292/.346/.458 with an .804 OPS, no home runs, four RBI and one run scored in 11 games before his injury, and he should return to at least semi-regular playing time when he's reinstated.
The Detroit Tigers placed outfielder Robbie Grossman (neck) on the injured list on Monday and recalled infielder Kody Clemens from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move. Grossman left the game early on Sunday against the Cleveland Guardians with a neck injury and will now miss at least the next 10 days. The 32-year-old switch-hitter hasn't really been a fantasy option in mixed leagues this year, as he's hitting a lowly .199/.311/.241 with no homers, 10 RBI, 13 runs scored and two stolen bases in 42 games played. Willi Castro, Derek Hill and Daz Cameron will operate in the Tigers outfield on Monday against Minnesota Twins right-hander Dylan Bundy. Clemens should serve as a depth infielder for Detroit.
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.
