Grossman is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The switch-hitter will take a seat for the third time in the last five games, a surprising development considering he had played in 21 straight games entering the month. Grossman is hitting just .255/.391/.396 this season, so the Twins may be searching for other power options at the plate. Miguel Sano will take over at the DH, as Eduardo Escobar starts at the hot corner.

Grossman is out of the lineup Sunday, LaVelle E. Neal of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman takes a seat on the bench for the second time in the past three games as Miguel Sano slides into the DH spot. During Saturday's contest, Grossman went 1-for-3 with one RBI, and will likely be back in the lineup for Monday's opener against Boston.

Grossman is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Indians, LaVelle E. Neal of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman takes a seat after starting the past three games going 2-for-9 at the plate in that span, with three walks and one strikeout. The 27-year-old has been a sturdy cog in the Minnesota lineup so far this season, and will likely be back in the order for Saturday's contest. In his place, Kennys Vargas is taking the DH duties against Trevor Bauer.

Grossman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman will be on the bench for the second game in a row after he played only the first half of Saturday's doubleheader. After seemingly wrestling away primary DH duties away from Kennys Vargas earlier this month, Grossman's hold on an everyday role may be loosening after going 0-for-12 at the plate in his previous three starts.

Grossman is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman pounded out two of the Twins' franchise-record 28 hits in Tuesday's massacre, but it won't be enough to keep him in the lineup over Kennys Vargas, who recorded four hits in the contest. It will be Grossman's first time out of the lineup since May 28, ending a streak of 15 consecutive starts.

Grossman went 2-for-6 with two runs in Tuesday's 20-7 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman actually had one of the quieter performances for a Twins offense that racked up a franchise-record 28 hits, but it was nonetheless another solid showing for the 27-year-old, who has turned in multi-hit efforts in three of his last five contests. Though his main competition for reps at DH, Kennys Vargas, exploded for four hits Tuesday, Grossman has been the more consistent performer of the two and maintains a 116-point edge in on-base percentage for the season. Look for Grossman to maintain at least a semi-regular lineup spot for the Twins, though in standard 5x5 leagues, he'll likely be an average-to-below-average contributor outside of the runs and batting average categories.

Grossman went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, three runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 11-5 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Kennys Vargas' demotion has put Grossman back in the lineup on a regular basis and he's responded with a .348/.464/.696 slash line, two homers, five RBI and six runs in his last seven games. His ability to draw walks should keep him entrenched as the No. 2 hitter in a Twins batting order that's currently ninth in the league in wOBA (.326).

Grossman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs during Monday's loss to Houston.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder is riding a nine-game hot stretch with three homers, seven RBI, eight runs and a 1.273 OPS through just 29 at-bats. The switch hitter has posted a .281/.396/.447 slash line dating back to last season and could be earning more playing time with his recent heater. It is a crowded outfield with Eddie Rosario, Max Kepler and Byron Broxton all receiving regular starts, but there might be a clear path to consistent at-bats as the designated hitter with Kennys Vargas' recent demotion to the minors.

Grossman is not in the lineup Friday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

It's the second consecutive game that Grossman has sat out, a surprise considering his .348 average and two home runs over the last week. Eddie Rosario will be in left field and Max Kepler will be in right field as the team opens the home stand.
