Profile: The switch-hitting Grossman signed with the Indians last offseason after being released by the Astros, but he never got a crack at the MLB roster, even with the injury to Michael Brantley and the suspension of Abraham Almonte. Grossman accepted his assignment to Triple-A Columbus at the end of spring training but exercised his mid-May opt out to sign a minor league deal with the Twins. Less than two days later, the Twins purchased his contract after demoting a slumping Eddie Rosario, and boom, in the span of about 48 hours, Grossman had gone from Triple-A afterthought to starting MLB left fielder. Grossman hit the ground running with the Twins, carrying a 1.000-plus OPS for his first 26 games before cooling down a bit. Still, he finished by hitting a stellar .280/.386/.443 while filling in for a Twins outfield that had issues all season long -- save for brief hot stretches from Byron Buxton and Max Kepler. Grossman was terrible defensively in left field at times, but he hit lefties well enough (.344/.418/.576) that he'll merit a look as a platoon option at DH and again in left with Rosario. He's not a starter but more of a really nice bench piece. (@Brandon_Warne)

The Quick Opinion: Grossman could have some utility in fantasy leagues that are easier to use platoons in — Scoresheet and deeper leagues — but his lack of a future as a starter makes him less useful in most formats.
