The Detroit Tiger trades Robbie Grossman with the Atlanta Braves for an opportunity

MINNEAPOLIS – The Detroit Tigers made their first trade, just minutes after their last loss.

After Monday’s loss to the Twins, Tiger sent defensive player Robbie Grossman to the Atlanta Braves, according to sources familiar with the situation. The Tigers received in return left bowler Chris Anglin.

The trade deadline for this year is 6pm on Tuesday.

“Detroit is going to be special for me,” Grossman said Monday. “This shirt will always be special to me. The group of players at this club, that relationship never leaves. You will always have a special place in my baseball career.”

Left Tigers Robbie Grossman (8) scores a brace for quarterback Riley Greene (not shown) in the fifth inning on July 30, 2022 against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Center.

Grossman, 32, is having the worst season of his 10-year career in the MLS. 205 hits key with two home runs, 23 RBIs, 38 walks and 90 strikes in 83 games (272 at bat). He’s in the final year of a two-year, $10 million contract.

Entering 2022, Grossman appears to be a candidate for a short-term contract extension.

However, he can play both right and left and has a bug-free streak of 440 games that cut just a few weeks ago. Now it aims to help the brave in the Eastern National League battle and defend the World Championship.
