Yasmani Grandal Heads to Injured List Among White Sox Roster Moves

Grandal’s stretch of underperformance coupled with bad luck is reflective of the 2022 White Sox’s struggles to date.

The Chicago White Sox made a trio of roster moves Monday ahead of a three-game series against the Detroit Tigers. As expected, the club reinstated starting pitcher Lance Lynn from the injured list to set up his season debut tonight. But in the same breath, the Sox placed catcher Yasmani Grandal on the injured list (retroactive to June 12) due to lower back spasms.

The 2022 season has been an incredible struggle for the switch-hitting catcher. Grandal owns a horrid .185/.294/.237 slash line on the season but was finally showing signs of life at the plate with hits in six of his last seven games played.

But after recording his second hit in Saturday’s contest against the Texas Rangers, he exited early due to hamstring tightness. Now, Grandal will be on the shelf for the foreseeable future as he deals with lower back spasms.

The 33-year-old’s stretch of underperformance coupled with bad luck is reflective of the 2022 Chicago White Sox’s struggles to date. Viewed as American League Central favorites entering the season, the South Siders are currently in third place with a 27-31 record.

Clearly, things haven’t gone the way Yasmani Grandal or the White Sox envisioned. And now both must battle through additional adversity to produce their desired results.
