White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Expected back soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grandal (knee) ramped up his hitting and throwing Sunday and is expected to return soon, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Grandal recently twisted his right knee during drills and will miss at least the first two spring games due to inflammation, but he appears to be nearing a return. Barring any setbacks, the 32-year-old catcher should still have plenty of time to prepare for Opening Day.

White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Slowed by knee inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grandal twisted his right knee during drills and will sit for at least the first two spring games until his inflammation subsides, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Catchers come with inherent injury risk, as do players in their early thirties, so this certainly isn't the ideal place for Grandal to be in early in camp. The injury doesn't appear to be a particularly worrisome one, and he still has more than a month to get up to speed by Opening Day, but the worry here is that spring knee issues could foreshadow similar problems throughout the year for a player at his age and position.

White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grandal (hand) remains on the bench Tuesday against Cleveland.

Grandal exited Monday's game with a bruised hand and did not start Tuesday's contest, though he did appear off the bench. That would suggest he's not far from being able to return to the lineup, though the White Sox have already clinched a playoff spot, so they have very little reason to rush him.

White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grandal (hand) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Cleveland.

Grandal left Monday's contest with a bruised right hand. It doesn't sound as though he'll need to miss too much time, but with the White Sox's postseason berth already secured, they can afford to be cautious with him. James McCann starts behind the plate in his absence.

White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Makes up for mental error
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grandal went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 win over the Royals.

Grandal mashed a walkoff homer to give the White Sox the victory, which elevated them to a first-place tie with the Twins in the AL Central. If not for an incident in the top of the ninth inning, in which the catcher was involved, Grandal's bottom-of-the-ninth heroics would not have been required. Following a rundown, first baseman Jose Abreu threw home to nail Bubba Starling trying to score, but Grandal wasn't expecting the throw, believing the play was dead. He more than made up for his mental miscue with his fourth home run.
