Gyorko is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko's power and versatility have offered him a regular spot in the lineup lately for the Cardinals, but he'll get a day off Tuesday. Jhonny Peralta will fill in at the hot corner, while Aledmys Diaz and Greg Garcia take over the middle infield spots.

Gyorko homered, scored twice and knocked in a pair in a 2-for-4 game with a walk Tuesday night against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko was enduring a nasty cold spell, as he was hitting just .238/.289/.286 without a home run over his past 13 games, but he broke out in a big way Tuesday night. Only three qualified second basemen have more home runs than Gyorko's 27: Brian Dozier, Robinson Cano and Rougned Odor. Gyorko also brings versatility, as he played shortstop Tuesday night, where only Manny Machado and Brad Miller have hit more homers.

Gyorko is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko took over and thrived as the starting shortstop while Aledmys Diaz was on the disabled list, but he'll head to the bench for Tuesday's game. Now that Diaz is back, the 27-year-old may have to split some time on the field, but how the time is divided will likely become clearer as the month rolls along.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He has started the last 23 games, hitting .250 with 11 home runs over that span. Thanks to this recent power surge, Gyorko now has a career-high 26 homers, even though he only has 360 plate appearances on the year.

Gyorko went 2-for-5 with a walk and a homer Monday, part of a 12-run effort for the Cardinals against the division-rival Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko's homer was his 26th of the season and his 12th in his last 30 games. It also extended the Cardinals' team home run streak to 24 games. Although he's hitting just .244, Gyorko is providing solid pop at the second base position. His .260 isolated power is tops among NL second basemen with at least 300 at-bats.

Gyorko went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and walk in Saturday's 9-1 loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko launched his 25th bomb of the season in the first, a 358-foot shot to left that gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead that would soon dissipate. The 27-year-old slugger's homer total is a career high and he remains on pace to exceed the high-water mark of 63 RBI he posted back in 2013. Three of those round-trippers have come in the last five games, with all of them being solo shots.

Gyorko went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs against the Mets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He's had the power stroke going lately, having drilled six homers to go with 11 RBI and 12 runs over the last 11 games. He may still be hitting a fairly typical .249, but Gyorko has improved his plate discipline with the move to St. Louis -- he's walking more and striking out less. The main thing depressing his batting average at this point is a .247 BABIP, which he could quite reasonably improve upon by season's end.

Gyorko went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Sunday's rout of the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was his 20th of the season and fifth in his last eight games, as Gyorko continues his recent power binge. He's hitting .281 (9-for-32) over that eight-game stretch with eight runs scored and 10 RBI and should remain a fixture in the Cards' starting lineup as long as he stays hot.

Gyorko smacked a very timely 19th homer of the season in the ninth inning Friday as part of a 2-for-5, two-RBI night in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging infielder tied the game with a 405-foot shot in the ninth that plated Jhonny Peralta, his fourth round-tripper in the last six games. Gyorko has also hit safely in six of his last seven and has 10 RBI overall in August.

Gyorko went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Gyorko is on fire, with three home runs in his past four games and a five-game hitting streak. With 18 homers, Gyorko has already topped his totals from both 2014 and 2015. Despite the fact that he was expected to ride the bench heading into the year, Gyorko now is tied for ninth in home runs among second basemen with Baltimore's Jonathan Schoop.
