Both Los Angeles Dodgers and Catcher Yasmani Grandal Unconcerned About Numbers Behind the Plate

(Mandatory Credit: Jake Roth/USA TODAY) “He’s been unbelievable back there,” Dodgers’ pitcher Zack Greinke said of his teammate and freshman Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal, “His catching is better than advertised.” When it comes to Grandal’s “advertising,” the jury is still out. He’s universally hailed as one of the best pitch-framers in the league. From 2007...

Yasmani Grandal May Want To Put the ‘Catch’ In Catcher

Yasmani Grandal is here for two reasons. One is that he can hit, and that he’s likely to hit better than ever in 2015. (And lest you think that this is me showing some bias, do remember that I wrote for ESPN about how he was a breakout candidate back in November, when he was still with the Padres.) The second thing is that he’s a pretty well-regarded pitch framer, which is important...

Don’t fret about Yasmani Grandal from the right side

GLENDALE, Ariz. — If you just look at the stat line, you’d think Yasmani Grandal was a poor right-handed hitter. For his career, he owns a .225/.335/.379 line, and just five of his 24 career home runs have come from the right side. But Grandal said on Dodger Talk that he thinks he has more power from the right side. It makes sense, as most switch-hitters begin hitting right...

Baby gets shaken around while dad scrambles for home run ball (video/GIF)

Your browser does not support iframes. It should go without saying that no souvenir baseball is worth possibly hurting one’s child, let alone a traumatic brain injury in an infant. But some folks will never learn, as evidenced by this guy diving into a battle for a ball hit for a three-run homer off the […] The post Baby gets shaken around while dad scrambles for home run ball...

Dodgers should look at the Padres' Yasmani Grandal to upgrade at catcher

I love A.J. Ellis. He's a good baseball player, a great interview and an even better person. There's no "but" here. Ellis is solid.The fact of the matter is, he wore down pretty noticeably last season. I saw a game at the beginning of September in which he looked sluggish behind the dish. He allowed just six passed balls in 2013 (down from 11 in 2012), but was also "charged" with...
