Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3 with a long solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Rays.
Grandal absolutely unloaded on a Chris Archer offering to lead off the seventh inning, hitting a moonshot solo home run to right. The tater was his 14th of the season. While that is a healthy home run total for a catcher, the 27-year-old backstop has struggled to do much else with the bat and is hitting just .211/.330/.430 over the course of 228 at-bats.

Yasmani Grandal was unavailable on Thursday due to a stomach virus.

It's the same ailment that's kept Corey Seager out of action for three games. Whether either player is available to play on Friday in St. Louis remains to be seen.

Yasmani Grandal hit his 13th home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

The dong was Grandal's first since a three-homer game leading into the All-Star break. He's got 38 RBI and 22 runs scored to go with a disappointing .208/.321/.429 line on the season.

Yasmani Grandal went 5-for-5 with three homers and six RBI against his former team as the Dodgers beat the Padres 10-6 on Friday.

Grandal is the 33rd player and three catcher to collect three homers and five hits in a game. Kris Bryant has also done it this year. The two catchers to do it previously were Walker Cooper in 1949 and Victor Martinez in 2004. Grandal raised his average from .183 to .204 tonight. It's the first time he's seen the Mendoza Line since May 20.

Yasmani Grandal crushed a go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Nationals.

Tanner Roark was pitching a shutout entering the eighth, but the Dodgers put two men on against him to start the frame and Grandal made Roark pay for those base runners, clocking a three-run homer to boost the home team to a 3-2 lead. Kenley Jansen would close out the affair without incident in the ninth. For the season, Grandal is slashing just .183/.304/.353 with six homers and 26 RBI across 153 at-bats. Those numbers look even more unsightly when one considers the fact that Grandal actually hit .295/.426/.477 in April.

Yasmani Grandal is not in the Dodgers starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Giants.

It'll be A.J. Ellis instead working behind the dish for the Dodgers and batting eighth against Jake Peavy. Look for Grandal to be back in there for Monday's series-opener against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Yasmani Grandal is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and catch Mike Bolsinger. He's batting eighth versus right-hander Tyler Chatwood.
Jun 6 - 6:45 PM

Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

Call it a much-needed day to clear the head. Grandal is hitting just .188/.281/.357 this season. A.J. Ellis earns the start at catcher in his place and will bat seventh.
Jun 1 - 8:05 PM

Yasmani Grandal went hitless in three plate appearances Monday, watching his season batting line drop to .188/.281/.357.

The Cubs managed to hold the Dodgers to just one hit on the day even after losing starter Jason Hammel to a hamstring cramp after two innings. Grandal can't wait to flip the calendar to June, as he's batted an ugly .123/.183/.292 in May after a .295/.426/.477 April.
May 30 - 8:39 PM

Yasmani Grandal hit his fourth homer Wednesday against the Reds.

Grandal had been in a 2-for-33 slump while dealing with his frequent off days and a recent minor ankle injury. He's been awfully slump-prone throughout his career, partly due to playing through physical issues, but he can also look like an elite catcher at times.

Yasmani Grandal (ankle) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.

Grandal missed a few games after fouling a ball off his right ankle on Saturday. He's starting at catcher and batting eighth Tuesday night against Reds righty Daniel Wright. It will be Winkler's major league debut.

Yasmani Grandal (ankle) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's marathon win over the Padres.

Grandal was held out of the Dodgers' starting lineup after fouling a ball off his right ankle on Saturday. X-rays came back negative. He's considered day-to-day.

Yasmani Grandal (ankle) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Grandal departed Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his right ankle. X-rays came back clean and he's available to pinch-hit. A.J. Ellis is catching Sunday. The Dodgers also have Howie Kendrick at third base for Justin Turner and Trayce Thompson in left field.

X-rays on Yasmani Grandal's right foot came back negative.

Grandal had to leave Saturday's loss to the Padres after fouling a ball off the foot, but thankfully exams came back clean. "It looks worse than it is," said Grandal. Even with X-rays coming back negative, it wouldn't be a surprise if Grandal sits for a day or two if he's sore.
