San Diego Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, who showed potential as a rookie last season, will rejoin the Padres Tuesday after serving his 50-game suspension for testing positive for elevated levels of testosterone, MLB.com reported.

Grandal, 24, had a brief rehab assignment, and will be with the Padres this week, but it's unclear how the Padres plan to use him.

The Padres plan to send John Baker to Triple-A Tucson to make room for Grandal on the active roster.
