Latest Update Robbie Grossman will take Carter's place in left field Wednesday Wed Jul, 30, 12:38 PM
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'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
In just this second game since being recalled from Triple-A, Grossman logged his first fifth multi-hit performance of the season, but his first of more than two hits. He is now sitting on a .176 average with three home runs and 13 RBI through 123 at-bats in his second season in the big leagues. Although he has been in the lineup in each of his first two games back with the team, he is going to have to start producing at a higher level before gaining any lasting fantasy value as we head into the All-Star break. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Grossman had been hitting .474 with a 1.223 OPS over his last 10 games down at Triple-A recently and is well-deserved of the call-up here. He should see some decent playing time over the rest of the week.Analyst: Howard Bender
