this Saturday he will start a minor league rehab assignment.
Yasmani Grandal will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Tucson.
Grandal is still serving his 50-game suspension for a positive PED test, but he is allowed to begin a 10-game minor league assignment. The 24-year-old backstop is eligible to join the Padres on May 28 and may split playing time with Nick Hundley upon his return.
once he is eligible to return, does he get called up right away?
does he take over as the full time catcher with SD? Nick Hundley was good in April, pretty much sucks in May.
if Grandal is the starter, what are expectations?
