As first reported by MLB.com’s Corey Brock, the Padres have put catcher Yasmani Grandal on the 60-day disabled list with a right knee injury suffered Saturday when Anthony Rendon slid into his legs at home plate while trying to break up a double play.

Rene Rivera was called up from Triple-A Tucson in a corresponding 25-man roster move and will share time at catcher with Nick Hundley going forward.

The Padres aren’t certain yet about the full extent of Grandal’s injury, but it has already been determined that he has MCL and ACL damage — which usually means surgery is going to be necessary. An X-ray is scheduled for Sunday night and an MRI is set for Monday morning.

Grandal missed the first two months of the 2013 season while serving a 50-game PED suspension for elevated levels of testosterone. He was batting .216/.352/.341 in 108 plate appearances since his May 28 debut.

      Please explain to me how testosterone prevents ligament tears from collisions or consider yourself mentally inferior to the contents of the bag I brought back after walking my dog in the park. Now.

      Karma for what? He was suspended for PED’s and missed 50 games because of it. It’s not like he didn’t get caught and avoided his punishment.

    Yup. Couldn’t happen to a better cheater.
