Padres reinstate Grandal from restricted list

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) — The San Diego Padres have reinstated catcher Yasmani Grandal from the restricted list after he missed the first 50 games of the season while serving a suspension for a positive testosterone test.

The Padres made the move official on Tuesday before completing a two-game series in Seattle. The Padres optioned catcher John Baker to Triple-A Tucson and designated for assignment infielder Edinson Rincon.

Grandal was part of San Diego's second-half resurgence in 2012, hitting .297 with eight home runs and 36 RBIs in 60 games. Grandal was allowed to play 10 games at Triple-A, where he hit .306 with three doubles and two RBIs in nine games.

Grandal apologized to his teammates at the start of spring training and read a statement in which he apologized to fans and the organization.
