Robbie Grossman Chooses His 2023 Home


One of the last viable free agent outfielders has selected his new home. Switch-hitting ten-year veteran outfielder Robbie Grossman has agreed to terms with the Texas Rangers. 

It's a major league deal for Grossman worth $2M plus an additional $3M available in performance bonuses. 

We got word earlier in the day that the Rangers, who were still on the hunt for a left fielder, were in talks with the 33-year-old, and they put the final push on to get it done. 

Grossman had a career year in 2021, when he rocked a career-high 23 home runs and stole 20 bases, also a personal best, to join the 20-20 club. He also notched an OPS+ of 115, making him 15% better than the average major league hitter.

But Grossman came crashing back to earth in 2022, when he hit just .209 with a .622 OPS, along with 7 HR and 45 RBIs for the Detroit Tigers and Atlanta Braves. Over the course of his decade in the big leagues, he registers as an average hitter, with an OPS+ of 101. 

He'll immediately jump to the front of the line for left field rights in Texas, who also have Josh Smith, Bubba Thompson and Mark Mathias as options in the OF corner.
