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.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gyorko will finish with just one start in the three-game series, something that's beginning to become a recurring trend given his woeful .145/.230/.200 batting line. Those in deep or NL-only leagues are advised to stay patient with Gyorko and keep him on the bench until his bat comes around, but for at least the time being, Yangervis Solarte appears to have supplanted Gyorko as manager Bud Black's preferred second-base option.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Friday.

It's been a rough first month of the season for Gyorko, who is slashing .135/.211/.173. Yangervis Solarte will get the start at second base and should continue to cut in Gyorko's playing time.

Gyorko went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts after entering the game as part of a double switch as the Padres dropped a decision to Houston Tuesday night.

It appears Gyorko and his anemic .143 batting average may have fallen into an actual platoon at second base with Yangervis Solarte who is hitting .346 on the season and has 12 RBI despite being a part time player. Gyorko has been sitting against right-handed starting pitchers so his fantasy value has taken a big hit with him being on the short side of the platoon. Look for him to continue to lose playing time until his bat wakes up or Solarte cools off significantly.
