Latest Update Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-2 with a double, three RBI, a run and a walk in the Padres victory over the Giants on Sunday. Sun Sep, 21, 07:56 PM
Has very good offensive upside due to his switch-hitting prowess and a big frame (6-2, 215 pounds). Is also patient enough to draw a fair amount of walks.
Flaws: : Needs to continue to work on is receiving skills and on calling a better game from behind the plate to maximize his potential as a big-league catcher.
What is scary is that today's performance raised his average to only .219 for the year. He has 41 RBIs on the year to go with 13 home runs. Analyst: Colby Conway
Grandal is now slashing.214/.310/.378 with 12 home runs and 36 RBI through 323 at-bats as he continues to have an up and down season for the Padres. Although he has flashed signs of what he could provide his fantasy owners, until he shows more consistency he needs to remain on the waiver wire. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Grandal has struggled through his 2014 campaign, slashing .209/.304/.369 with 12 home runs and 36 RBI through 320 at-bats, as he continues to be unable to live up to the hype placed around him from his days in the minor leagues. Unless you are in an NL-only league there is now reason to make him a fantasy consideration, barring an incredible run down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Grandal is batting just .210 on the season and that's just not going to cut it, even for the Padres. He's been playing more first base lately, but because of the batting ineptitude, he'll take a seat in favor of Jake Goebbert on Thursday.Analyst: Howard Bender
