RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Early season injuries to Justin Maxwell and J.D. Martinez opened the door for Grossman to step in and contribute for the Astros, but the rookie struggled during his initial audition with the team. In 28 games as the starting center fielder, he hit .198/.310/.243 before he was sent back down to Triple-A to sort things out offensively. When Grossman returned to Houston in late July, he looked like a completely different player, immediately ripping off a 10-game hit streak en-route to a .322/.351/.466 line over his final 35 games. An oblique injury ended his season in September, but the switch-hitting outfielder likely proved himself enough to be considered for a starting role out of spring training.

2013

The Astros picked up Grossman from the Pirates as part of the Wandy Rodriguez deal. The 23-year-old outfielder has a knack for getting on base, posting a .266/.376/.410 line over his two Double-A stops. Grossman is most known for that exceptional plate discipline, and while he has subpar power potential, he runs well enough to partially offset the deficit. With Jordan Schafer back in Atlanta, Grossman should eventually get a chance to show what he can do in center field. For now, however, he will likely bide his time in Triple-A waiting for the call.

2012

Grossman provided the Arizona Fall League with one of its most electric performances (hitting .375/.472/.625 in 26 games) before breaking his hamate bone. During the 2011 campaign, the switch-hitting outfielder compiled a slash line of .293/.418/.450 in 134 games with High-A Bradenton. He scored 127 runs, strung together a 104:111 BB:K ratio and swiped 24 bases in 34 attempts. Grossman, who is expected to move up to Double-A for the first time, figures to be ready for spring training -- with the caveat that his power might initially suffer due to his hand injury. A strong start could push him to Pittsburgh by September, but he's still behind the likes of Starling Marte in the pecking order. His plate discipline alone gives him a chance to find regular work in the big leagues.
