Robbie Grossman has been a big hit in the AFL

Pirates Robbie Grossman Passes the 2007 AFL Numbers of Andrew McCutchen

Robbie Grossman keeps rolling along. The on base machine started the game off today against Peoria with a leadoff double against Brewers right-handed pitcher Cody Scarpetta.

The Mesa Solar Sox rolled to a 10-3 victory. Grossman also walked twice in the game. We thought he might fade away after such a hot start and an 0-for four on Thursday. But taking a closer look, Grossman has 14 hits in his past ten games and an OPS of 1.117.

Looking at Grossman now with 77 at-bats and 29 hits is impressive. Just how impressive?

Back in 2007, a Pittsburgh Pirates prospect named Andrew McCutchen had 28 hits in 98 at-bats. Cutch had no homers, two triples, and five doubles.  His OPS was .758.

Heh, just sayin.
