Yasmani Grandal (concussion) will serve as the designated hitter on his upcoming rehab stint with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It's a good sign that he'll be ready to come off the 7-day concussion disabled list as soon as he's eligible to do so, as his timing shouldn't be off. Expect Grandal to rejoin the Dodgers by the end of next week.

Yasmani Grandal (concussion) is expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible next Saturday.

Grandal was placed on the DL Saturday with a mild concussion, but the Dodgers anticipate him being ready to play in a few days. He could play 2-3 rehab games before being activated.
May 24 - 2:28 PM

Dodgers placed C Yasmani Grandal on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Grandal suffered the injury Friday when Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte hit him with his backswing. The Dodgers think he'll be back to normal soon but understandably wanted to be cautious. We'd expect A.J. Ellis to do most of the catching in his absence, though Austin Barnes could see time there as well. Barnes was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

The Dodgers aren't sure whether Yasmani Grandal suffered a concussion Friday, but he won't play Saturday.

It's possible Grandal will end up on the seven-day concussion DL, but that remains to be seen. A.J. Ellis will catch Saturday.
May 23 - 12:59 AM

Yasmani Grandal was forced to leave Friday's game against the Padres after being hit in the head by Yangervis Solarte's backswing.

Grandal attempted to remain in the game but had to be replaced by A.J. Ellis to start the fifth inning. He's likely to be evaluated for a possible concussion. Consider him day-to-day.

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

A.J. Ellis will catch Clayton Kershaw and bat eighth against Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
May 21 - 12:22 PM

Yasmani Grandal's run-scoring single in the fourth inning would be the only run scored in a 1-0 Dodger win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Grandal finished the game 1-for-2 with a walk. The two-out RBI single off of Kyle Kendrick gave Grandal 17 RBI for the season. He's also hit four homers and scored 17 runs. The catcher's been in a groove offensively and has a season-slash of .301/.421/.484 while helping to lead the 24-13 Dodgers.
May 17 - 6:59 PM

Yasmani Grandal hit a pair of three-run home runs and added a two-run single to finish with eight RBI in Thursday's 14-4 win over the Brewers.

Grandal's two-run single in the sixth would have been nice on its own. As is, it was just the opening act. He smashed a three-run homer off of Rob Wooten in the eighth inning, then repeated the feat one frame later, this time off of Jonathan Broxton. The outburst was made all the more surprising given that Grandal had just two home runs and four RBI entering the game. With the huge effort, he bumped his batting line to .301/.414/.534.
May 7 - 6:49 PM

Yasmani Grandal is batting second for the Dodgers on Thursday afternoon against the Brewers.

Grandal has primarily been batting fifth this season, but he gets a bump for Thursday's matinee in Milwaukee. The 26-year-old catcher has a decent .261/.370/.420 slash line in 81 plate appearances this season.
May 7 - 10:37 AM

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday night against the Brewers.

Veteran catcher A.J. Ellis will be behind the plate for Dodgers spot starter Joe Wieland.
May 6 - 4:16 PM

Yasmani Grandal blasted a walkoff home run leading off the 13th inning on Sunday, propelling the Dodgers to a 1-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Grandal entered the game as a pinch-hitter when he drew a walk for A.J. Ellis in the tenth inning. His only official at-bat in the contest was his game-winning blast off Evan Marshall in the 13th inning. He's now hitting .230/.356/.377 with two homers and three RBI on the season.
May 3 - 8:18 PM

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

It's merely a day of rest for Grandal. A.J. Ellis is catching Brett Anderson.
May 3 - 12:37 PM

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

Grandal had previously started every non-Clayton Kershaw start, but A.J. Ellis is catching Brandon McCarthy in this one. He's one of a few regulars sitting for the Dodgers, as Darwin Barney is playing shortstop for Jimmy Rollins, Scott Van Slyke is in left field instead of Carl Crawford and Alex Guerrero is again at third base in place of Juan Uribe (hamstring).

Yasmani Grandal hit his first homer as a Dodger in Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers could have hit Grandal at the bottom of the order, like they do A.J. Ellis, but he's been plugged into the fifth spot in his starts dating back to the beginning of the spring. For fantasy purposes, it'll help make up for him probably not playing quite as much as most starting catchers.
