Padres C Grandal eligible to be reinstated Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal is eligible to be reinstated Tuesday from a 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test that called into question just how good his rookie numbers were.

Beyond saying he made a "mistake," Grandal has never told team officials why he took PEDs. Now they say Grandal will have to quiet any skepticism with his play.

Grandal was part of San Diego's second-half resurgence in 2012, hitting.297 with eight home runs and 36 RBIs in 60 games. He was called up on June 1, made his big league debut the next day and was sent back down. He was back up less than a month later, for good.

The Padres could leave Grandal in Triple-A a little longer, or, more likely, reinstate him on Tuesday.
