CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox reinstated catcher Yasmani Grandal from the 10-day injured list before Friday night's series opener against the crosstown Cubs.

The 32-year-old Grandal had been sidelined since he tore a tendon in his left knee July 5 at Minnesota. The switch-hitter batted .303 (10 for 33) with a homer and three RBIs over 11 games on a minor league rehab assignment.

Catcher Zack Collins was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte to make room on the roster. Collins, who was selected by Chicago in the first round of the 2016 amateur draft, hit .202 with four homers and 24 RBIs in 72 games with the AL Central-leading White Sox.

Grandal is in his second season with Chicago after he agreed to a $73 million, four-year contract in November 2019. The two-time All-Star is batting just .188 in 63 games this year, but he has 14 homers, 38 RBIs and a .388 on-base percentage, his highest number since his rookie year and well above his career average of .351.
