Latest Update Grandal smacks ninth homer on Sunday Mon Jul, 21, 06:57 AM
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.
Grandal has finally started to come around in the month of July, slashing .289/.373/.533 with three home runs over his last 45 at-bats. He has now already homers in two of the first three games since returning from the All-Star break, so hopefully his newly found confidence at the plate can lead to a more productive second half, that is if he can stay healthy which is a task in itself.

The home run was Grandal's sixth of the season, but he is still batting a paltry .185. He should heat up as the weather continues to get warmer, but his value is limited to deep two-catcher leagues at this point.Analyst: David Kerr
Grandal tweeted out that his hand is fine and what first looked like a broken finger and knuckle, turned out to just be a blood vessel that burst.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The home run was just the second hit for Grandal since May 6th, so don't get too excited as this former top catching prospect is showing that he is not as good as his cocky smile may lead you on to believe. Even in two catcher leagues you are better off targeting someone else as Grandal's five home runs on the season in no way make up for his .206 average and lackluster auxiliary stats.Analyst: Michael Pichan
