Grossman (illness) is hitting fifth as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Red Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman was lifted from Sunday's contest due to heat illness, but he's good to go after Monday's scheduled off day. He'll face left-hander Chris Sale in this one.

Grossman was removed from Sunday's matchup against the Indians due to what the Twins are referring to as "heat illness," Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With temperatures reaching the mid-to-upper 90s in the midwest this weekend, Grossman will be lifted for precautionary reasons. He was 2-for-3 prior to exiting, and will be replaced by Taylor Motter in right field.

Grossman will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and bat seventh Sunday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has checked in as the DH in 11 of the Twins' 16 games since May 18, a date that coincides with Joe Mauer suffering a neck injury that later landed him on the disabled list. According to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, Mauer put in a full workout prior to Sunday's contest, creating some hope the 35-year-old may be able to return from the DL later this week. Once Mauer is back in the fold, he and Logan Morrison would likely share duties at first base and DH in most games, thereby squeezing Grossman out of the lineup on a recurring basis.

Grossman is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has settled into a regular role in the Twins' outfield with Byron Buxton (toe) on the disabled list, but he hasn't produced much with the extra at-bats. He's hitting just .185 on the season and is hitless in his past three starts. Grossman will head to the bench for night off, allowing Ryan LaMarre to pick up a start in center field Friday night.

Grossman went 3-for-4 with a walk and a double in Friday's loss to the Reds. He's reached base in seven of his last nine plate appearances.

EDGE Analysis

After a 4-for-37 start to the season at the plate, Grossman has finally heated up the past two games going 6-for-8 with a walk. Grossman should continue to see time in the lineup while Byron Buxton (toe) remains on the disabled list, either at DH, right field or left field.

Grossman went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman collected three of the team's eight hits, and he provided his first round-tripper of the year in the third inning off of Domingo German. The 28-year-old should continue to see time in the lineup while Byron Buxton (toe) remains on the disabled list, but Grossman doesn't seem to be entrenched in any permanent role at the moment, as he's rotated between left field, right field and the DH spot over his past five appearances.

Grossman went 2-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 10-1 loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

With Byron Buxton (migraines) on the disabled list and Logan Morrison in a deep slump to begin the year, playing time has begun to open up for Grossman despite his own struggles at the plate, and he responded Saturday with his first multi-hit performance of the season. The 28-year-old has now started four straight games, and he figures to remain a regular on Paul Molitor's lineup card for time being, particularly if he strings together some more hits.

Grossman is in Thursday's lineup at DH batting fourth in the order, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman gets his first start of the season against southpaw James Paxton. Grossman got regular duty at DH last season, but he's become more of a reserve player after the acquisition of Logan Morrison.

Grossman struck out in his lone pinch-hit appearance during Monday's 5-4 loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

With the Twins facing right-handed starting pitching in their first four games, Grossman has been limited to a bench role in all of those contests. It's likely that Grossman will remain out of the lineup Wednesday against Pirates right-hander Ivan Nova, but he should draw into the lineup Thursday versus southpaw Steven Brault. One of the Twins' two lefty-hitting outfielders, Max Kepler or Eddie Rosario, would move to the bench to accommodate Grossman in that scenario.

Grossman went 1-for-3 in Friday's spring training win over Tampa Bay. He's hitting just .130 (3-for-23) this spring and faces increased competition for playing time with the Twins signing Logan Morrison.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman looked set to get regular playing time at DH, but now may have more of a reserve role with Morrison set to get the most time at DH. Grossman could work his way into a platoon in left field or right field, but his poor glove makes it hard to play him in the outfield. His spring training stats may not matter for a veteran, but they won't help his chances to carve out a regular role.
