Grandal will be traded to the Dodgers as part of the package for outfielder Matt Kemp, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.
Grandal had a rough 2014 season with the Padres, posting a career-high 26 percent strikeout rate and slashing .237/.335/.389 over 443 plate appearances. He'll get an opportunity to turn things around, but his playing time is currently blocked by A.J. Ellis at catcher, and Adrian Gonzalez at first base. The Dodgers have been very active during the 2014 winter meetings, however, so Grandal's status still has the potential to change on short notice.
