Grandal (forearm) has been scratched from Saturday's game against the Angels and will instead play in a minor league game, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles New Group reports.
Manager Dave Roberts said of Grandal, "He felt OK coming out of [Friday]. Not great." The skipper later admitted that the "window is closing" for Grandal to make the Opening Day roster. By keeping him on the minor league side, the team will have the option to backdate a DL stint at the start of the season.
