Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Grossman is a good hitter, but his approach does need some work. He has a high leg lift that will need to be toned down.
Power:He's got some power now, though it's likely to come a little later in his career. More of a line-drive gap hitter now.
Running Speed:He's got above-average speed.
Base running:He's very aggressive and makes the most of his natural speed on the basepaths.
Arm Strength:His arm is average, at best.
Fielding:His overall aggressiveness translates pretty well to his defensive game in the outfield.
Range:He's got average range.
Physical Description:Grossman is a gritty little player with some Lenny Dykstra to him.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Hard-working attitude; gets the most out his tools because of his aggressiveness on the field.
Weaknesses:He doesn't necessarily profile well. He's not quite good enough to play center every day, but not strong enough offensively to man a corner.
Summary:Grossman is the kind of player that can be fun to watch because he knows only one speed: full. A real grinder, he plays the game hard and makes the most of his tools, which include decent speed and some strength at the plate. He doesn't really profile well at any outfield position, but it's also evident he won't be outworked and is the type to exceed expectations.
