      Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal: Cleared to swing from both sides of plate

      Grandal (shoulder) was cleared to swing from both sides of the plate Friday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Grandal continues to work his way back from left shoulder surgery, and clearance to swing certainly represents a step in the right direction. Fortunately, the left shoulder issue really only impacts the backstop in the batter's box, as he throws with his right hand like nearly every other catcher. Barring something unforeseen, the 27-year-old should be on track to serve as the Dodgers' primary catcher once again in 2016 despite an underwhelming second half in 2015.

      Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal: Agrees to one-year deal with Dodgers

      Grandal agreed to a one-year, $2.8 million contract with the Dodgers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. Grandal was the centerpiece of a trade that brought sent Matt Kemp to the Padres in 2014. While his first half of the season was promising, he tanked in the second half to finish with just a .234/.353/.403 batting line. Despite the downfall, he should once again serve as the Dodgers' primary catcher in 2016.

      Dodgers unsure if Yasmani Grandal will play Thursday

      Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said catcher Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is "50-50" to play in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. A left shoulder injury, suffered in Monday's Game 3, kept Grandal on the bench for Game 4 of the series, though it may have been a blessing in disguise as Clayton Kershaw and A.J. Ellis worked well together in the victory. Grandal was available to pinch-hit Tuesday and figures to be again in that capacity Thursday if he isn't cleared to return to the lineup.
