Top 10 opposing players for 2012 - No. 7 Robbie Grossman
Bio: Pittsburgh's second-rounder from 2008, Grossman's name is just beginning to catch a star. He stands 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, is 22 years old, and attended Cy-Fair High School, in Cypress, Texas. He received a cool $1 million from the Pirates to bypass the University of Texas.
A switch hitter, Grossman hit .326/.441/.442 versus lefties, and .281/.410/.455 versus righties. For what it's worth, he had just one extra-base hit in 32 at-bats against Tampa pitching last season with Bradenton.
"Grossman is technically a five-tool prospect, yet one without a plus tool. He showed a much simpler swing in 2011 and a better feel for contact. He has enough pop to earn average power grades. He's a 50-55 runner who can steal a base when given the opportunity, plays a good outfield, and has a solid arm. It's not a tool, but one of Grossman's most valuable attributes is his plate discipline; he led the minor leagues with 104 walks and rarely commits to a bad pitch."
