• Catcher Yasmani Grandal, who was suspended the first 50 games of the season for testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone, played in the first of what's expected to be 10 Minor League games with the Triple-A Tucson Padres.
In a game in Des Moines, he caught nine innings and was 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Tucson's 4-2 victory over Iowa. Grandal won't play Sunday, but will resume his stint with Tucson on Monday. He's eligible to rejoin the Padres on May 28 when the team is in Seattle.
