Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal lands on the injured list with a left knee strain – The Denver Post


The Chicago White Sox placed catcher Yasmani Grandal on the 10-day injured list with a left knee strain, one of three roster moves announced Sunday.

The Sox also selected the contract of catcher Carlos Pérez from Triple-A Charlotte and transferred pitcher Kyle Crick to the 60-day IL.

Grandal suffered the injury Saturday, attempting to score on Elvis Andrus’ single in the seventh inning. He has a .203 batting average with five doubles, three home runs and 21 RBIs in 74 games.

With Grandal unavailable, Seby Zavala steps into the starting role behind the plate. He’s slashing .279/.326/.395 with nine doubles, two homers and 18 RBIs in 41 games.

Pérez, 26, is slashing .257/.319/.446 with 13 doubles, 17 home runs, 63 RBIs and 27 walks in 91 games for the Knights this season.

Crick has been on the injured list since June 14 with right elbow inflammation.
