Robbie Grossman OF HOU 1 Month

Robbie Grossman went 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Astros beat the Rangers 8-4 on Wednesday.

Grossman, who was just recalled Tuesday after a couple of weeks back in Triple-A, snapped an 0-for-28 slump that dated back to June 9. He'll get a few more starts this week with Dexter Fowler and Alex Presley out, but he might not be much of a factor afterwards.

Grossman was recalled on Sunday and has started both games in left field, swatting two singles in Tuesday's win. He also stole his second base of the season in two attempts. The 24-year-old has the ability to go deep as well, making him an interesting name in AL-only leagues.

Grossman will serve as the Astros everyday left fielder upon his return. He struggled in his first stint with the team, slashing just .125/.236/.313 with two homers and six RBI in 14 games. He could be worth a look in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Dropped to eighth in the order, Robbie Grossman went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Wednesday.

The Astros redid their lineup at the end of the spring because of how impressed they were with Grossman, moving him up to second and going with Jose Altuve in the cleanup spot. It ended up lasting less than a week and a half with Grossman off to a 2-for-29 start. Now he's 2-for-32 with 12 strikeouts and still no runs scored. Fortunately for him, the Astros don't have anyone else they'd rather play in left field right now, so Grossman will get a chance to snap out of the funk.

Astros manager Bo Porter indicated Wednesday that Robbie Grossman will get at-bats out of the No. 2 spot this season.

Jose Altuve was originally slated to be the No. 2 hitter behind Dexter Fowler, but he could now slide into the No. 3 spot. Grossman, 24, batted .268/.332/.370 with four homers and six stolen bases over 63 games last season and has some appeal as a late-round option in mixed leagues.

Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle has confirmed a Yahoo! Sports report that the Astros have discussed an extension with Robbie Grossman's agents.

Ortiz says the deal would lock Grossman up beyond his arbitration years. Grossman isn't slated for arbitration eligibility until after the 2016 season, so the deal would obviously be a lengthy one. The 24-year-old batted .268/.332/.370 with four homers and six stolen bases over 63 games for the Astros last season. He's a career .269/.381/.387 hitter in the minors.
