Jedd Gyorko 2B/SS STL 6 days ago

Gyorko went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 27-year-old has enjoyed facing D-Backs pitching after what has been a frustrating start to his Cardinals tenure. Gyorko has gone 3-for-7 with a homer, four RBI, two walks and two runs scored over the first two games of the series, a welcome development in a month during which he's actually posting an average that his nine points lower than his already-mediocre .228 April figure. He's at least been able to provide some power, although Saturday's gopher ball was notably his first of May after he'd blasted four during the season's opening month.

Gyorko is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Kolten Wong is set to make his second consecutive start at the keystone after returning from a week-long absence Saturday, which results in Gyorko taking a seat Sunday. Gyorko's average dropped to .228 over the past week with him collecting just two hits in his last 16 at-bats. Manager Mike Matheny may opt to give Wong a few starts in a row following his lengthy absence, so Gyorko could be out of the lineup for a couple extra days beyond Sunday.

Gyorko went 3-for-5 with a home run, a triple and two runs scored Sunday versus the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko started and went deep in Saturday's game, and he followed that up in a similar fashion on Sunday. He has a .999 OPS through 38 at-bats this season and should continue to share time in what has developed into something of an infield rotation in St. Louis.

Gyorko went 3-for-5 on Saturday with a three-run home run in the win against San Diego.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko has been a solid and versatile infielder for the Cardinals this season, logging time at second base, third base, and shortstop. He's also provided some pop with three home runs in 33 at-bats which could make him a decent option in deeper leagues with daily lineups.

Gyorko is not in the lineup Thursday against Milwaukee.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko was tabbed to start at second base in Game 2 of the series Wednesday, and he's also made three starts at shortstop this season. He'll return to the bench Thursday, however, as Kolten Wong returns to his usual second base spot, while Aledmys Diaz gets the nod at short.

Gyorko is starting at second base and batting seventh Wednesday against the Brewers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko didn't start the Cardinals previous three games, giving way to the scorching-hot Aledmys Diaz at shortstop and Kolten Wong at second base, but he'll take Wong's spot in the lineup Wednesday. He doesn't have a high batting average thus far, but he does have a homer already and could provide a bit of pop at the bottom of the Cardinals' order.

Gyorko remains out of the starting lineup Sunday against the Braves.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko has started three of the first five games at shortstop for the Cardinals, but will sit for the second straight day Sunday afternoon. Manager Mike Matheny continues to rotate shortstops with Jhonny Peralta (hand) on the DL, as Sunday's starter Greg Garcia will be the third different player used at that position to begin the 2016 season. Look for that pattern to continue if none of the options are able to stand out offensively.

Gyorko is not in the lineup Saturday against Atlanta, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It looks like a routine day off for Gyorko, as the Cardinals will go with Aledmys Dias at shortstop. Diaz will bat eighth in the order.

Gyorko will move over to shortstop and bat eighth in the order for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko will remain in the lineup Wednesday despite Kolten Wong's return to the order by sliding over to short and taking Aledmys Diaz's spot. The former Padre hit his first home run as a Cardinal on Tuesday and finished the game going 2-for-5 with two RBI and two strikeouts. However, it's worth noting that he'll be facing right-hander Juan Nicasio on Wednesday, and Gyorko has struggled throughout his career to hit righties.

Gyorko hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates, part of a 2-for-5 game.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gyorko is getting a chance to show he deserves long-term playing time with Jhonny Peralta and Ruben Tejada laid up with injuries. Gyorko has three consecutive double-digit home run seasons, making him one of the best power producing second basemen in the league even with his perennial struggles in San Diego. Once he earns qualification at shortstop, his power will make him a major asset as long as he can hold onto playing time in St. Louis.
