Grandal was helped off the field, unable to put any pressure on his knee, and was on crutches in the clubhouse. Manager Tony La Russa spoke on Grandal’s injury saying he will be put on the injury list on Sunday.
“It’s hard [to assess the injury] because he had it twisted, but the way [trainer] James [Kruk] described it, to be determined. Just wait and see.”
With Grandal being on the IL the Sox will be bringing up catcher Carlos Perez from Triple-A Charlotte to Cleveland for Sunday’s series finale to back up Seby Zavala as reported by Chicago Suntimes. Zavala, being one of two catchers on the Sox’s 40-men roster, took over behind the plate for the rest of Saturday’s game.
Grandal, 33, is having one of his worse seasons, after missing five weeks earlier in the season due to spasms, another significant injury adds to his line of bad luck.
