robbie grossman

The Texas Rangers acquired outfielder Robbie Grossman from the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday morning in exchange for minor league right-hander Anthony Hoopii-Tuionetoa.

Grossman, 34, was part of Texas’ World Series-winning team last season before signing with the White Sox as a free agent in March.

Grossman was batting .211 with four doubles and four RBIs in 25 games for Chicago, which entered the day with the worst record in baseball at 8-28.

He contributed 10 home runs and 49 RBIs while batting .238 in 115 regular-season games for the Rangers last year. In seven playoff appearances, he went 2-for-19 with 10 strikeouts.

Grossman is a career .243 hitter with 90 home runs and 419 RBIs over 12 seasons playing for the Houston Astros (2013-15), Minnesota Twins (2016-18), Oakland Athletics (2019-20), Detroit Tigers (2021-22), Atlanta Braves (2022), Rangers and White Sox.

Hoopii-Tuionetoa, a 23-year-old native of Hawaii, started this season playing for Double-A Frisco, his highest level in the minors so far. Over 10 relief appearances he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings.
