(5/31/14) Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal was not in the lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

|Yasmani Grandal back in lineup Wednesday |

(5/28/14) Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal is in the starting lineup and batting eighth in Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Grandal left Tuesday's game with a hand injury after being hit by a ball while catching, but his X-rays came back clean and the injury won't cost him any time. He has hit .194/.279/.389 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 108 at-bats.
|X-rays come back negative on Yasmani Grandal hand |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(5/28/14) The hand injury to Padres starting catcher Yasmani Grandal might not be as severe as first feared. Initial x-rays on it came back negaive, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Grandal, who hurt the hand on a backswing Tuesday night, has been a mess at the plate. He has just two hits in his last 33 at-bats as his average has dipped under .200 for the first time since he started the season 0 for 2.
|It was a tough year for Yasmani Grandal in 2013. The Padres catcher missed the start of the season while serving a 50-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Grandal took over as the regular catcher after making his season debut in late May, though, he wouldn't spend a great deal of time on the diamond as a major knee injury in early July brought his season to a close. Grandal would need surgery after suffering damage to his ACL and is expected to need 9-12 months of recovery time, which could mean Grandal misses the first half of the 2014 season. Prior to getting hurt, Grandal was struggling offensively. After batting .297 with a .469 slugging percentage and .863 OPS as a rookie in 2012, Grandal slumped to .216/.341/.693 in 28 games last season. Grandal has good offensive potential for a catcher, but the knee injury keeps him out of play in most Fantasy leagues Draft Day. Grandal is more of a late-round, draft-and-stash option if you can afford the DL or bench spot.
