Latest Update Robbie Grossman went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in the Astros 5-2 win over the Yankees Wednesday. Thu Aug, 21, 01:26 AM
Has excellent strike-zone judgment, switch-hitting ability and pretty good upside as a hitter. Also owns good speed and great base-running instincts.
Flaws: : Must prove capable of hitting for power in the long run, since the jury is still out. Has good (but not great) defensive ability, and only an average arm.
Grossman has enjoyed his stay at Yankee Stadium the last two nights, going 3-for-9 with three RBI, two runs scored an a stolen base. However, he is hitting a mere .215 with six home runs and 30 RBI through 237 at-bats, so unless he is able to keep this pace down the stretch he has little to no fantasy value, even while receiving regular playing time in the Astros outfield. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Grossman is now 8-for-29 (.276 BA) with one home run, four RBI and six runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to try and battle back from a tough start to the season. Despite sitting on a .213 average Grossman has displayed some power, connecting on six home runs in 221 at-bats, but is going to find himself on the outside looking in once George Springer is back in the mix.

Grossman's level of power is significantly less than that of Carter, so expect maybe a little more small-ball during Wednesday's matinee.Analyst: Howard Bender
His five-game hit streak was put to bed and followed by a two-game hitless streak (0-for-6) here in the series against Miami. He'll take a seat with Chris Carter taking over in left and Marc Krauss in right.Analyst: Howard Bender
