Grandal suspended 50 games

Catcher Yasmani Grandal is no longer part of the Reds, but this is still interesting news that crossed on Wednesday: Grandal was given a 50-game suspension by Major League Baseball for a positive test of testosterone.

You may recall that Grandal was a major part of the the 4-for-1 trade with the Padres last December that brought starting pitcher Mat Latos to the Reds. Also sent to San Diego were Yonder Alonso, Brad Boxberger and Edinson Volquez.

Grandal was also a first-round pick of the Reds in 2010.
