Grossman is hitting third Tuesday and should serve as the Twins' everyday left fielder over the rest of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Eddie Rosario (broken thumb) is done for the year, leaving Grossman and Logan Schafer as the only healthy left fielders on the active roster. Grossman has had his most productive offensive season of his big league career this year (.280/.387/.451), and while his .364 BABIP and 13 percent HR/FB are well above his career norms, it's possible that he made tangible improvements this year. After all, he turned 27 years old on Sept. 16 and had fewer than 200 big league games under his belt heading into the season.

Grossman went 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and two RBI against the Royals on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

He's now cracked double-digit homers for the first time in his career. At 26, Grossman's the right age for a power breakout, but he wasn't a big slugger in the minors. He owns an impressive .389 OBP thanks to a high walk rate, but has been starting mostly against lefties when healthy, which means his best fantasy utility comes in AL-only and daily formats.

Grossman (oblique) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has logged only one at-bat over the last eight games while battling an oblique issue. The Twins haven't provided much in terms of details, but his return to the lineup Wednesday is obviously a positive indication. Grossman, who hit .258 in the month of August, is sitting on nine home runs and 31 RBI on the year. He'll man left field and hit fifth in the order against Kansas City's Danny Duffy.

Grossman (oblique) is out of the lineup Monday against the Royals, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins still haven't offered much clarity on Grossman's timetable for a return from the oblique injury, so he's far from a safe lineup option in weekly leagues. With Byron Buxton on a tear since rejoining the Twins prior to the past weekend, Grossman's regular spot in the lineup may have disappeared by the time he's healthy again.

Grossman (oblique) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman is facing an uncertain return timetable due to the sore oblique, but he may have been at risk of losing his spot in the lineup anyway with the Twins eager to give Byron Buxton another chance at full-time duties in the outfield over the season's final month. It's probably still worthwhile to hang onto Grossman in AL-only and deeper mixed formats, but just be wary that a regular starting role may not guaranteed once he's healthy again.

Grossman (oblique) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the White Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

A sore oblique has kept Grossman from the Twins' last four games, and while there should be no need for a DL move with expanded rosters, it's uncertain when he may be able to return to the field. Grossman is batting just .224 against right-handed pitching this season but he's been an asset against lefties (.347/.429/.561).

Grossman (oblique) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

EDGE Analysis

A healthy Grossman, with his .990 OPS against left-handers, likely would have started Friday against White Sox starter Carlos Rodon, but it appears he is still not feeling good enough to play a full nine innings.

Grossman is out of the lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

With Grossman still out, Minnesota will head into Thursday's matchup with an outfield of Eddie Rosario, Byron Buxton, and Max Kepler. Although this is Grossman's third straight day out of the lineup, he's still considered day-to-day heading into Friday's outing versus the White Sox.

Grossman (oblique) is available from the bench Wednesday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that a stint on the DL won't be necessary for Grossman. Although he's still receiving treatment for his sore oblique, he's able to play Wednesday if need be. He should still be considered day-to-day heading into Thursday's series opener versus the White Sox.
