San Diego Padres C Yasmani Grandal will leave extended spring training and report to Triple-A Tucson Saturday, May 18, and he's eligible to come off the restricted list May 28 after being suspended for the first 50 games of the season. "He feels good, everything is solid, offensively and defensively," general manager Josh Byrnes said recently. "We will get him ready to play in those games and evaluate where he is and where our roster is." C John Baker is hitting only .115 and will likely be optioned to the minors to make room for Grandal.
Fantasy Tip: Grandal looked good in his major league audition last year, but the PED suspension makes us question how much of his production was actually real. It's unclear how much time he'll split with Nick Hundley, too. It's time to snatch him up in NL-only leagues if he's out there, but you can probably wait on him in mixed formats.

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.

Hopefully he'll be full go in spring training."
