Grandal is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

A.J. Ellis will take over behind the plate, affording Grandal a day to rest his legs after five consecutive starts. Grandal has rewarded patient fantasy owners after a rough first three months of the season, as he's totaled 14 home runs since the calendar flipped to July. He's tied with Jonathan Lucroy for the most home runs among catchers (20).

Grandal picked up three hits Tuesday, including a two-run home run, to go along with a walk, three RBI and three runs scored in the Dodgers' 15-5 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Grandal has been absolutely on fire lately, hitting .330/.454/.742 with 12 home runs in his past 30 games. He now has 19 homers on the year, a career-high already. Grandal's full-season batting average remains at just .234, but the switch-hitting catcher could certainly help many fantasy teams if he's still available in your league.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers' starting catcher is hitting .284/.422/.612 with six home runs in 67 at-bats in the second half of the season. He will get Saturday's day game off after starting the last four games behind the dish. A.J. Ellis will start at catcher and hit eighth Saturday.

Grandal went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Grandal homered for the second straight contest, tying his career high in RBI with 49 on a two-run blast in the third inning. The slugging catcher has achieved that feat by driving in nine runs in his last seven games, so he's likely to top it substantially by season's end. Don't be surprised if his .236/.355/.492 line actually climbs down the stretch, as it's currently being held back by a career-low .257 BABIP.

Grandal went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo homer, a walk and three runs scored in Monday's 9-4 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Grandal extended his hitting streak to eight games, with an impressive six extra-base hits, seven runs and eight RBI in that stretch. The homer gave the catcher a new career high of 17, having increased his total from 16 last season and 15 the year before that. With just two RBI needed to match his previous career high as well, the 27-year-old is undoubtedly having his best campaign to date at the dish.

EDGE Analysis

A.J. Ellis will get the start behind the dish for the Dodgers at Coors Field on Wednesday. Grandal is swinging a hot bat over his last 10 games, hitting .313 with three home runs and six RBI in 32 at-bats.

Grandal went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, a walk, three RBI and three runs in the Dodgers' 14-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

While Grandal hasn't hit a triple since 2014, he was just a triple short of the cycle Sunday, continuing his recent hot stretch and finishing July with a .324/.439/.691 batting line on the month. Grandal had been dreadful at the plate up until then, entering July hitting just .179. The Dodgers' catcher is finally starting to show why he was ranked fairly highly among preseason catcher ranks, and now has 15 home runs on the season, tied for the most among NL catchers. With the catcher position so thin, Grandal will be a valuable asset to fantasy owners if he continues putting up numbers like he has this past month.

Grandal went 1-for-3 with his 14th home run of the season Tuesday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

That's eight homers in the past month for Grandal, who is just two shy of last season's career-high total. The recent power surge has raised the catcher's slugging percentage to .430, but a dismal .227 BABIP has suppressed his average to a meager .211 mark.
