Grandal (knee) threw and took some swings Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Manager Tony La Russa said the fact that Grandal is not limping is an encouraging sign, and it suggests he may be slightly ahead of schedule in his recovery from left knee surgery. It's unclear when the catcher will be ready for activation, but all signs have pointed to his returning before the regular season concludes.
Grandal underwent successful surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left knee Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Grandal was removed from Monday's game against the Twins with a knee injury, and initial reports were that he's expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. However, it's possible his return timeline could change, given that he required Wednesday's procedure. The White Sox still anticipate Grandal being able to return sometime later this season, and the club is expected to provide an update on the backstop in the near future. Zack Collins should serve as the primary catcher in coming weeks while Seby Zavala spells him behind the plate.
Grandal is expected to miss four to six weeks with a torn tendon in his left knee, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. The catcher falls victim to a knee injury in his first game back from a relatively minor calf ailment. Specifics about Grandal's return timeline should become available in a few weeks. Zack Collins will be the White Sox's starting catcher, with Seby Zavala, whom the team recalled Tuesday, serving as the backup.
Grandal (calf) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins. The catcher was seen with crutches following Monday's contest, so it's no surprise he isn't playing Tuesday. It remains unclear how severe this calf injury is, but with the All-Star break nearing, an IL stint for Grandal seems likely. Zack Collins is catching Tuesday and will likely do so as long as Grandal is out.
Grandal was removed from Monday's game against the Twins with a strained left calf. The 32-year-old dealt with tightness in his left calf over the weekend and aggravated the injury in his return to the lineup Monday. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it wouldn't be a major surprise to see Grandal miss a bit of time given the recurring nature of the issue.
