RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Grossman endured his second straight brutal start to the season in 2015, hitting a mere .143 with a .222 OBP over 24 games for the Astros as the team's fourth outfielder. His poor performance earned him a ticket back to Triple-A in May, which is where he spent the rest of the year while Houston employed Preston Tucker in the role of fourth outfielder. Grossman's production was still below average for the Fresno Grizzlies, with a .325 wOBA and 93 wRC+ over 93 games. He was released by the Astros after the season and then signed to a minor league deal with the Indians. This is certainly a better opportunity for him to find playing time, as the Indians outfield is a mess. However, Grossman has not done anything of late to suggest that he would provide value if given a significant role.

2015

A strong second-half in 2013 (.322 batting average) and a hot spring (.360) had the Astros raving about Grossman's potential, but a brutal start to 2014, during which the 25-year-old hit .125 with 17 strikeouts in 48 at-bats, resulted in a quick demotion to Triple-A. The switch-hitting outfielder turned things around with a .337 batting average in 44 minor league games, but struggled yet again upon his eventual return to Houston. Overall, Grossman hit .233/.337/.333 in 360 big league at-bats (103 games). His elite walk rate (13%) is certainly a plus, but his speed and power are still below average. Coming off a down season offensively, Grossman will have to be a standout in Astros camp to beat out Jake Marisnick (among others) for the starting job in left field. Most likely, he'll open 2015 as the team's fourth or fifth outfielder.

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.
