Grossman (groin) took a full batting practice Sunday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman has been sidelined since March 19 after straining his groin while attempting to make a catch, but it looks as if he's on the cusp of a return. He hopes to get back in the outfield for a Grapefruit League game as soon as Monday or Tuesday.

Grossman (groin) is expected to miss 5-to-7 days, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder is battling some tightness in his right groin, but the ailment doesn't appear to be overly serious, as the team noted that it expects Grossman to be ready for the start of the regular season. Grossman will compete for regular time in the outfield and could also see at-bats as the Twins' designated hitter.

Grossman exited Sunday's game against the Red Sox with tightness in his right groin, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of Grossman's injury is yet to be seen, and it's possible that he was simply removed for precautionary reasons. Further reports should become available in the coming days. He'll be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Grossman is the leading candidate to win a reserve outfielder role this spring, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He'll compete with Zach Granite, Daniel Palka, Drew Stubbs and J.B. Shuck.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman will most likely begin the season as the fourth outfiedler, but it's possible he could win the DH job or platoon in left field with Eddie Rosario. Grossman had the most productive offensive season of his big league career last year (.280/.386/.443), so it would be an upset if he didn't make the final 25-man roster. His only worry would be if the Twins decided to keep a better outfielder on he bench for his glove, as Grossman was a poor fielder by most advanced metrics.

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.
