RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Grandal was having a great season until he got injured in 2015, so for 2016, he mixed things up and got injured, then had a great season. Grandal had a brutal beginning to his campaign, ending the month of June hitting .179/.292/.347 after playing through the pain of forearm, wrist, and foot injuries. And then, he got better. From July 1 to the end of the season he hit .267/.376/.581 with 20 homers, superb numbers for a catcher. At his best, Grandal controls the strike zone like few hitters and simply crushes the ball when he makes contact, though he's still whiff-prone with a 22.9 percent career strikeout rate. There's little doubt that Grandal is an excellent player with rare value in OBP leagues when healthy, the problem is he's not healthy very often and will frequently play through injuries, even if they hurt his numbers. He enters 2017 as the clear starter in L.A. at catcher, with only Austin Barnes behind him to get an occasional start against lefties.

2016

Grandal entered the 2015 season in a tough spot with the "we got THIS guy as the centerpiece for Matt Kemp?" label firmly attached to fans' expectations. Grandal put those whispers firmly to rest in the first half of the season, batting a robust .282/.401/.526 and making his first All-Star appearance. It all went south after that however, as a sore left shoulder was likely a major contributor to an awful second half that saw Grandal hit a meager.162/.280/.215. It's unlikely that Grandal simply forgot how to hit, but he'll certainly enter 2016 with something to prove. Grandal underwent shoulder surgery in October, and while no definitive timetable is known, he should head to spring training fully healthy and in a position to be the team's Opening Day catcher. Given his first half heroics and second-half fade, Grandal could be a good buy low with the chance of huge rewards if he can stay consistent and healthy over the course of a full season. A forearm issue slowed him late in camp, and brings a little added risk to the table.

2015

Strife characterized Grandalís 2013 season, which was abbreviated due to a 50-game suspension to start the year and concluded with a gruesome ACL tear in July. While the injury legitimately threatened his Opening Night availability last season, he bucked all expectations and landed on the 25-man roster, making his first appearance behind the dish in the second game. As a precaution, the Padres carried three catchers well into May, but with no indication of a setback to Grandalís right knee, Nick Hundley was dealt to the Orioles on May 24. The move provided Grandal and Rene Rivera with an equal share of the nods, but as the season wound on, the former garnered sporadic starts at first base due to Yonder Alonsoís season-ending forearm injury and to ease stress on Grandalís surgically-repaired knee. Ultimately, Grandal worked his way into a near everyday role at first, which coincided with the end of his season-long battle with the Mendoza Line. Entering Aug. 24 with a miserable .204/.302/.376 line, he thereafter displayed his prowess at the plate, batting .283 with five home runs, 21 RBI, 19 runs scored, and a 20:35 BB:K in 130 at-bats. Traded to the Dodgers as part of the Matt Kemp deal in December, Grandal should benefit from having a more talented lineup around him in Los Angeles. Look for him to take over as the team's primary catcher.

2014

After serving a 50-game suspension to start the year for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, Grandal took over catching duties from Nick Hundley, fitting in 28 contests before sustaining a season-ending ACL tear in July. One month passed before Grandal underwent a full reconstruction of the ACL in his right knee, which typically requires 9-to-12 months in order to recover fully. Despite stated optimism that he'll be ready for spring training, the Padres ultimately have the final word on his rehab, and he's hardly a lock to be ready for Opening Day. In his absence, Hundley will continue to don a catcher's mask, with Rene Rivera acting as depth.

2013

First the bad, Grandal was suspended for 50 games for testing positive for a performance enhancing substance in November. Now the good, whatever price most owners were set to pay for him in 2013, this recent news likely slashes that in half, if not further. It's impossible to say what, if any, effect the substance that Grandal was using had on his 2012 performance. What we do know is that as a rookie, he showed a good eye at the plate and can hit for power as he hit .268/.368/.392 in one of the toughest venues for hitters, Petco Park. These numbers come from a small sample size (114 plate appearances) as he spent half of his 2012 season in the minors. How he'll spend his 2013 season will largely depend on how he responds to his suspension and how his teammates perform early on in his place, but there's reason to believe he'll reprise his role as the Padres' primary catcher after his 50-game absence.

2012

The Reds were in an enviable position to have two high-ceiling catching prospects in the system in Grandal and Devin Mesoraco. That depth was leveraged with the acquisition of Mat Latos in December, which made Grandal the catcher of the future in San Diego. Grandal progressed from High-A to Triple-A at the end of last season, though an injured left hand ended a campaign in the Arizona Fall League. It may not take him long to supplant Nick Hundley with his new organization. He eventually projects as a high-average hitter with the potential to hit 20 homers at the major league level.

2011

Many draft experts considered Grandal to be a potential top-five pick in last year's Rule 4 draft, but he slipped to the Reds at No. 12 overall due to signability concerns. For the second year in a row, the Reds broke ranks with recent history by going over slot to sign Grandal much like they did Yonder Alonso the year before. Grandal will be on the fast track for the Reds, as he can hit for both power and average and is considered to be a smooth defensive catcher. Devin Mesoraco will probably reach the majors before Grandal, but Grandal has the higher ceiling.
