Gyorko will bat cleanup Sunday against Lance Lynn and the Cardinals.

Gyorko has been solid since returning to the Padres, collecting seven base hits in his last 16 at-bats. Manager Dave Roberts will reward him by moving him up in the order to the spot typically occupied by Justin Upton, who is getting the day off.

Gyorko continues to look good Saturday, going 3-for-4.

He's now picked up seven hits in his last four games, and Gyorko seems intent on re-establishing himself as the Padres' regular second baseman. If you need middle infield help he could be worth a look.

Gyorko started for the fourth straight day Friday and finished 2-for-4 with a homer in the Padres' win over St. Louis.

The homer came against Cards right-hander Michael Wacha in the seventh inning, and the Padres seem to be giving him a look as the everyday second baseman while Cory Spangenberg is on the disabled list. Gyorko seemed to get back on track at Triple-A during his a 16-game demotion (.854 OPS), and the organization's investment in him should afford him a reasonably long window in the coming weeks to return to the form he showed in 2013 (.249/.301/.444, 23 homers).

Gyorko was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of the Union-Tribune reports.

Gyork was pulled from Monday's game at Triple-A El Paso after one inning, indicating that a call-up was in the offing. He'll rejoin the Padres' infield with Cory Spangenberg landing on the disabled list Tuesday. Gyorko had four home runs in 61 at-bats in his stint at Triple-A El Paso and also improved his plate discipline, striking out 11 times and walking seven times.

Gyorko played just one inning in Monday's game at Triple-A El Paso and it's expected that he'll be recalled by the Padres as a corresponding move Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It's believed that Cory Spangenberg will go on the DL, leaving Gyorko to reprise his role as the starter at second base on the small side of a platoon (facing left-handed starters). Over 16 games with the Chihuahuas, Gyorko hit .279/.362/.492 with four homers, nine RBI and a 7:11 BB:K in 61 at-bats.

Gyorko hit his third home run in five games on Wednesday, The Union-Tribune reports.

Gyorko was sent down earlier this month after managing a poor .210/.282/.311 batting line with 35 strikeouts over 46 games with the Padres. It appears he is starting to find his swing at Triple-A now with four home runs and a .286 batting average.

Gyorko was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.

Gyorko has seen his opportunities limited of late, logging just six at-bats in the month of May after hitting .279 in June. He's seemingly the odd man out at third base, so he'll head to Triple-A, where he figures to see more regular playing time. In a corresponding move, the Padres brought up right-hander Nick Vincent from El Paso. Vincent has already made two cameos for the big league club this season and was last up from May 1-7.

Gyorko is is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

Gyorko is far from a fixture in manager Bud Black's starting nine, but he had managed to work his way into the lineup four times in the last six games. He hasn't done much with the stick over that stretch, however, collecting just two base hits while striking out seven times.

Gyorko is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Gyorko has surrendered the keystone to Cory Spangenberg for three straight games, but will get the start and bat sixth in the order Sunday afternoon. The veteran has two multi-hit games so far in May, but is still batting under the Mendoza Line on the year.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.

Cory Spangenberg is set to man second base Tuesday, and it appears Gyorko will play almost exclusively against left-handed pitching moving forward. Gyorko is 3-for-41 (.073 average) with 10 strikeouts and zero walks against right-handed pitching so far this season.
