Grossman went 2-for-2 with two walks in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and bat cleanup Sunday against the Rangers, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Tyler Austin appears to be the Twins' preferred option at DH, Grossman will enter the lineup for a third straight game and looks to have a clear path to playing time in the short term with left fielder Eddie Rosario (quadriceps) still hurting. Rosario has yet to resume baseball activities and seems likely to miss additional action, so Grossman should remain a fixture in the lineup during the upcoming week.

Grossman will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Athletics, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll draw into the lineup for a resting Eddie Rosario, giving Grossman his fifth start in eight games since returning from the 10-day disabled list. For the third consecutive seasons, Grossman boasts a double-digit walk rate (11 percent), but that's about the only skill he brings to the table. He has mustered only four home runs and no steals in 333 plate appearances and has graded out as a below-average defender, which could leave him on the outside looking in for work in Minnesota's outfield rotation over the final month of the campaign.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman rejoins the big club after wrapping up a three-game rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Rochester. Though he's back on the active roster, Grossman won't re-enter the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Tigers, as the hot-hitting Tyler Austin will draw a fourth consecutive start.

Grossman (hamstring) will likely be activated from the disabled list ahead of Sunday's game against the Tigers, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman showed no ill effects from the hamstring injury after starting a rehab assignment, going 5-for-11 with a double in three games with Triple-A Rochester. He is expected to take the Johnny Field's roster spot, and Grossman may play semi-regularly in right field for a stretch with Max Kepler shifted to center.

It's expected that he will play in multiple games for Rochester, though a concrete return date has yet to be established. Across 92 games this year, Grossman has hit .253/.332/.365 with four home runs and 34 RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman was removed from Sunday's series finale in the seventh inning after suffering a leg injury while sprinting to first base. Although the issue was classified as mild, the Twins are being cautious with the 28-year-old outfielder. Grossman isn't expected to remain on the shelf for longer than the minimum.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman will start in right field and lead off Sunday against the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Grossman will enter the lineup for the first time since July 30 with Jake Cave having seemingly solidified an everyday role in the outfield and Logan Morrison faring well recently as the Twins' designated hitter. The 28-year-old, meanwhile, has managed only a .231/.311/.282 batting line since the All-Star break and will need to heat up at the plate before seeing more opportunities.
