Robbie Grossman went 2-for-3 with a walk against the Orioles on Saturday.
Both hits were singles and he didn't factor into the scoring. He has a .253/.379/.386 slash line with six home runs and 26 RBI in 281 plate appearances. He's not exactly the ideal clean-up hitter but that is the role he's been thrust into for the Twins. Jul 8 - 5:35 PM

Robbie Grossman went 3-for-4 with a double versus the Giants on Friday.

He was picked off after one of the hits. Unfortunately, Grossman isn't really good at anything on the field despite getting on base; he's a poor outfielder and he's just 18-for-32 stealing bases in his career. The .410 OBP goes a long way, though, and the Twins will keep him in the lineup until it drops.

He is 16-for-45 (.356) with four home runs and nine RBI since May 18 to raise his average from .238 to .279 to emerge as a solid play in most AL-only fantasy formats and some deeper mixed leagues.

Still, things are working out so far.
