Yasmani Grandal Figures To Be San Diego's Main Catcher Going Forward
Jul/06/12 08:42 AM Filed in: Yasmani Grandal
Yasmani Grandal, Padres -- Grandal earned the call to the majors over the weekend and celebrated by homering twice in his first career start. He thrived at Triple-A Tucson this season, hitting .335/.443/.521 with six homers, 18 doubles and 35 RBI in 194 at-bats. He has started all four games since getting the call, and figures to be San Diego's primary catcher going forward. We all know the familiar refrain with hitters in Petco Park at this point, but Grandal has a ton of raw power and a position that is forever shallow. Those of you in keeper or dynasty leagues should pounce, and Grandal should be rostered in nearly all formats.
