HOUSTON -- Robbie Grossman was out of the Houston lineup on Friday for a second straight game, mending a rolled ankle suffered on Wednesday.

Grossman hit inside in the cage on Friday and the outfielder remains day to day. Grossman did not hit in the cage on Thursday.

"I'm trying to get the soreness out," said Grossman. "I'm ready to go when they tell me to."

Grossman twisted his left ankle rounding first base following a single on Wednesday against Oakland, on a 2-for-4 night. The injury is not considered serious.
