Grandal went 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and three RBI in Sunday's 12-6 win over Houston in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Grandal cut the White Sox's deficit to 5-3 in the third inning, when he drove a fly ball 359 feet to left field that barely cleared the fence for a two-run home run. The backstop was then at the center of a pivotal play for Chicago with the game tied at 6-6 in his next at-bat an inning later. After he hit a grounder to first base, Grandal was hit by the ball on a throw home by the Astros' Yuli Gurriel that scored Luis Robert, with officials ruling the play an error rather than interference on Grandal's part. Robert's run gave the White Sox a 7-6 lead, and Chicago didn't look back after that to secure its first win of the series.

Grandal is starting Friday against the Cubs after being activated from the injured list.
Grandal was activated from the injured list earlier Friday after missing close to two months with a knee injury. The backstop will resume his season with an underwhelming .188/.388/.436 slash line, but he should get the bulk of the starts while Seby Zavala spells him behind the plate.
Grandal (knee) was activated off the injured list as expected Friday.
Grandal has been out since early July while recovering from knee surgery. Prior to his injury, he owned a very strange yet productive .188/.388/.436 slash line. He walked nearly twice as often as he recorded a hit (60 to 34), but over 40 percent of his hits were homers (14). He's been a similar low-average, high-walk, high-power hitter throughout much of his career, but he'll need to do less damage to fantasy teams' batting averages down the stretch if he's to be a quality option in standard setups. Zack Collins was optioned to clear space for him on the roster, so Seby Zavala will serve as Grandal's backup for now.
Grandal (knee) will be activated off the injured list Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Grandal has been out since early July after undergoing surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left knee. He's gotten into a full 11 rehab games and has looked good, hitting .303. He should return to his role as the primary catcher down the stretch, though the White Sox likely won't want to overwork his surgically repaired knee, so he could get more days off than usual over the next few weeks.
Manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday that Grandal's (knee) return is "imminent," Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
La Russa previously ruled Grandal out for the team's current road trip in Toronto, but it appears as though the catcher will be back in action in the coming days. The 32-year-old has made nine rehab appearances between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte, and he's slashed .321/.394/.464 with a home run, a double, four runs and three RBI.
Manager Tony La Russa said Grandal (knee) won't return from the 10-day injured list during the White Sox's upcoming four-game series in Toronto that concludes Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
La Russa stressed that Grandal hasn't suffered a setback in his recovery from the left knee surgery he required in early July; the White Sox simply aren't keen on rushing him back early while he rebuilds strength in the knee. Grandal will likely remain on assignment at Triple-A Charlotte through at least the end of the week before the White Sox re-evaluate him for a potential activation. Through his first seven rehab games between Charlotte and Double-A Binghamton, Grandal has gone 9-for-20 with a home run and three RBI.
Grandal's (knee) rehab assignment will be moved to Triple-A Charlotte beginning Tuesday.
Grandal began a rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham last Wednesday, and the backstop wound up going 4-for-11 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored across four games. It's not entirely clear how many games the club plans on having him play with Charlotte, but assuming he continues to progress well, the 32-year-old figures to have a chance of being activated from the 10-day IL by the end of the week. Grandal should resume as Chicago's primary catcher once he's activated.
Grandal (knee) was sent to Double-A Birmingham on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment.
Grandal tested his knee by running the bases over the weekend, and he's been cleared to return to game action with the team's minor-league affiliate. The 32-year-old has been on the injured list since early July due to a left knee procedure, but he'll begin the final step in his recovery process and will reclaim the primary role behind the dish once he's reinstated from the 10-day IL.
