Al Avila, Robbie Grossman release statements after Detroit Tigers complete deal

The Detroit Tigers made things official, officially inking switch-hitting outfielder Robbie Grossman to a two-year, $10 million deal.

With a .350 career on-base average, Grossman will bring desperately needed on-base improvement to A.J. Hinch’s squad. Having began his MLB career with the Houston Astros, this will be Grossman’s second go-around with Hinch.

In addition to the Astros, Grossman has also suited up for the Minnesota Twins and, most recently, Oakland Athletics over eight years.
