Padres | Yasmani Grandal did not hit during offseason

San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal (hand) did not hit all winter because he was bothered by two inflamed tendons on his catching hand. He suffered the injury in a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks last season but played through the pain during the final month of the year. It did not bother him while he was catching but made it difficult whenever the switch-hitting Grandal needed to bat from the left side of the plate. He is not expected to resume hitting until early next week. Grandal said he would be ready to play by May 28, when his 50-game suspension ends.
