Detroit Tigers trade Robbie Grossman to Atlanta Braves for left-handed pitcher Kris Anglin

The Detroit Tigers have made their first trade, just moments after their latest loss.

After Monday’s loss to the Twins, the Tigers sent outfielder Robbie Grossman to the Atlanta Braves, in accordance with sources with understanding of the problem. The Tigers are receiving left-handed pitcherKris Anglin in exchange.

Grossman, 32, is suffering arguably the worst season of his 10-year MLB career. The switch-hitter is batting .205 with two home runs and 23 RBIs in 83 games (272 at-bats). He could be in the ultimate year of a two-year, $10 million contract.

Still, he is able to play all three outfield positions and had a 440-game errorless streak snapped just a couple weeks ago. He is able to now help the Braves battle for the NL East and defending their World Series championship.

Anglin, drafted by the Braves in the 16th round of the 2021 draft out of Howard College in Texas, has spent this year in rookie ball and Single-A. The 20-year-old is 4-6 with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.433 WHIP in 17 appearances (11 starts). He could be not listed on the list of Braves’ top 30 prospects, in accordance with MLB Pipeline.
