I don't want to speak for Mario-Rijo, but I think Grandal will be moved to first base because Mesoraco will hopefully be the Reds catcher for at least six more seasons. Mesoraco is supposed to have better defensive tools than Grandal and he is much closer to the major leagues. Mes will have an earlier shot at the bigs and if he sticks, the Reds will need to find a place for Grandal to play. If Grandal was to become the regular 1b, I wonder if they would play him at catcher on Mes's off days. Interesting to think about.
