Robbie Grossman

Grossman is no stranger to North Texas, graduating from Cy-Fair High School in Cypress, TX.

The switch-hitting outfielder has spent the last two seasons in the Bay Area with Oakland, batting .241 with 14 home runs over that time.

Grossman owns a career 6.7 WAR over the course of his eight year big league career, and owns a .980 Fielding % in left field.

His ability to switch-hit is a huge asset to a Rangers team that is, and has been, right-handed heavy.

Grossman won’t break the back for Texas, as he signed a one year, $2 million deal with Oakland last season.

Lastly, Grossman can help balance out the lineup and give the Rangers a reliable outfielder on a cheap contract. He would be a nice addition to the Rangers squad in 2021.
