Robbie Grossman was lifted from Sunday's game with tightness in his right groin.

The Twins should have more on Grossman's status after the game. If healthy, he's in line to serve as an extra outfielder this season.
Mar 19 - 2:30 PM

Robbie Grossman hit his 11th home run of the season in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Grossman was the only Twins hitter able to get to Tigers starter Matt Boyd on the evening, as the southpaw allowed just three hits in his eight innings of work. After a strong start to the year, the 27-year-old hit a lull in August but is back in a big way in September, going 11-for-28 (.392) with two homers this month. He's hitting .280/.388/.459 with 11 homers, 36 RBI and 46 runs scored on the year, and could be playing himself into the 2017 conversation with a good finish.

Robbie Grossman finished 4-for-4 Sunday against the Mets.

Grossman is mostly playing against lefties right now, but since the Twins haven't faced any in a while, he got the nod against a righty today in his first start in four days. After fading in July, he's hit well in his limited action of late, and he's back up to .280 with an .835 OPS in 293 at-bats.

Robbie Grossman went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double Wednesday in his return to the starting lineup.

Grossman hadn't started a game since Aug. 28 because of a mild oblique strain. He'll likely play primarily against lefties the rest of the way.

Robbie Grossman (oblique) came off the bench Monday against the Royals and was hit by a pitch in his lone plate appearance.

Grossman entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and finished the game in left field. The 26-year-old suffered an oblique strain late last month, but he's apparently making quick progress.

Robbie Grossman (oblique) entered as a pinch-runner on Sunday against the White Sox.

That should be a sign that his return is close. Grossman had been held on the bench for the Twins since August 29 due to a strained oblique -- an injury that can sometimes take weeks to fully recover from.

Robbie Grossman (oblique) took swings off a tee Friday and said he's "progressing."

Grossman has battled a strained oblique this week. It's unclear when he might be available, but the Twins can play it safe with expanded rosters.

Robbie Grossman (oblique) will be available to pinch-hit off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Indians.

Grossman continues to undergo treatment for recent oblique discomfort and sat out Tuesday's game against the Tribe. He was available off the bench for that contest and will likewise be available on Wednesday. Expect him to be returned to full health in the next few days unless he encounters a setback.

Robbie Grossman is day-to-day with oblique discomfort.

He is not in the Twins' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Indians, but the outfielder could be available off the bench. Grossman is batting .269/.384/.437 with nine home runs and 31 RBI in 78 games this season.

Robbie Grossman went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Royals.

The multi-hit game was his first since July 28, including his eighth homer of the year. The 26-year-old is batting .270/.389/.443 in 67 games and has become a regular in the Twins lineup in recent months.

Robbie Grossman hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Grossman finished 1-for-4 with the two-run blast off Astros starter Mike Fiers in the fifth inning, one of three homers the Twins hit off the right-hander in the game. The home run was Grossman's seventh of the season. Grossman's tale is that of the "he is what we think he is" variety, as two months ago the 26-year-old's robust .333/.459/.650 line demanded regular playing time. He got it, and Grossman is now slashing .266/.392/.436 through 64 games. Not much to see here.

Robbie Grossman went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Grossman had a single and a double and also collected a pair of walks, reaching base in four of his five plate appearances on the night. It has been quite a year thus far for Grossman, who is hitting .280 with a .864 OPS in 57 games. It's no surprise, then, that he's basically taken over as the everyday left fielder, and the 26-year-old should continue to find regular playing time going forward.

Robbie Grossman homered and walked against the White Sox on Thursday.

Grossman ends June with a .237 average for the month, but with 23 walks and five homers, he remained a solid player anyway. We wouldn't expect him to continue to hit for as much power.
Thu, Jun 30, 2016 05:42:00 PM

Robbie Grossman is absent from the Twins starting lineup on Saturday.

The hot-hitting outfielder will get a breather against right-hander Michael Pineda. Danny Santana is starting in his place and hitting second for the Twins.
