The Dodgers have activated catcher Yasmani Grandal from the 7-day concussion disabled list. He’s back in the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Cardinals.
Grandal suffered a concussion when he was hit by the backswing of Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte last Friday, so he ended up missing exactly seven games. He went 3-for-10 with a double and five walks over three minor league rehab games with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Acquired from the Padres over the winter in the Matt Kemp deal, Grandal was off to an excellent start prior to hitting the disabled list, putting up a .291/.403/.466 batting line with four home runs and 17 RBI over 33 games. He nearly has as many walks (20) as strikeouts (23).
