"Best case scenario this is a tummy ache, worst case an oblique strain. Either way the recommended treatment is to rub dirt on it."
Bud Black was just on The Dave and Jeff 1090 Show and he said that he thinks that Yasmani Grandal will be heading do the DL— XX Sports 1090 (@XX1090) July 31, 2012
"Yeah that was a bummer guys. This is an oblique strain, obviously the severity of these varies from player to player and injury to injury, but this is the type of the injury that we've come to know doesn't heal in a day or two. So this looks like a disabled list situation for Yasi."
I didn't think this injury was going to be a big deal after Grandal's comments last night
"It looks like he's going to be out for at least the 15 days, and hopefully this is mild enough where he can get back on the horse in 15, but keep your fingers crossed on this one. Of all the injuries that are happening in this day and age for position players, I don't like this one at all."
"I don't think it's that bad," said Grandal after the Padres' 11-5 victory over the Reds. "We're going to see what happens tomorrow. But I think I'll be OK."

Here's how the injury happened last night:
