Grossman is not in the lineup Friday for the second day in a row.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Paul Molitor wanted to give Joe Mauer a lighter load Thursday and Mitch Garver a start Friday, and both were slotted in as the designated hitter at Grossman's expense. Grossman is 9-for-24 (.375) since returning from the disabled list, so it seems likely he will be back in action Saturday following his two-day break.

Grossman (thumb) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Grossman is back with the Twins after successfully completing a pair of minor-league rehab games with Triple-A Rochester. Now that he's healthy, Grossman should resume his role as Minnesota's primary DH, though they could choose to ease him back into things with an expanded roster.

Grossman (thumb) will begin a two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester on Saturday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The plan is for him to join Minnesota in Tampa Bay on Tuesday. According to Berardino, the switch-hitting Grossman can only hit from the left side of the plate at this stage in his rehab, and he is unable to throw. Of course, as primarily a DH, he will not be asked to throw when he returns to the majors.

Grossman was able to take cuts from both sides of the plate Thursday, but is still feeling soreness in his left thumb, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has been on the disabled list for two weeks now after suffering a fractured thumb against Cleveland. It appears as though the Twins may choose to reinstate him before he's able to throw, which will mean all of his starts will come out of the DH spot until he's effective from the outfield. At this point, Grossman will transition to live hitting soon, and could return to the big-league club by the second weekend in September.

Grossman (thumb) was placed on the disabled list Thursday and is expected to be sidelined for three weeks, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins have yet to announce a corresponding move, but there are a number of viable outfielders in the system from which to choose. Manager Paul Molitor laid out a three-week timetable for Grossman, adding that throwing will be the biggest challenge he faces en route to a return. Still, a three-week timetable will allow Grossman to get back on the field for the better part of September.
