Padres | Yasmani Grandal nearing return

San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal will join Triple-A Tucson on Saturday, May 18, to begin the permissible 10-day rehab assignment before his 50-game suspension for a positive test for performance-enhancing substance ends on May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal posted a .297/.394/.469 slash line in 60 games for the Pads in 2012, but there has to be some doubt about how he'll perform once he returns given the numbers of others after they've been popped. Nick Hundley (.259/.314/.426) has been adequate, as well, not to mention vocal about his feelings regarding Grandal's possible impact on his job. This should be interesting. Grandal warrants ownership in deep leagues, still, because he's young and presumably still quite talented.
