Jedd Gyorko 2B/3B SD 5 Days

Gyorko clubbed his 10th home run of the year, while going 2-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Gyorko has been hitting well of late, going 9-for-30 in his last eight games. Still, it has been a sub-par year for Gyorko, as he has battled injuries all year. He now owns a meager .203/.263/.335 slash line in 340 at-bats this year.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

With Gyorko stuck in a 5-for-27 slump since returning from a hamstring injury Aug. 25, manager Bud Black will have the infielder ride the pine for a day with the hope that it kick-starts his production. The newly-recalled Cory Spangenberg will pick up a start at second base.

Gyorko went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's walkoff victory versus the Brewers.

Gyorko's fifth-inning single marked his first base knock in week, as he's been limited to 13 at-bats over the last seven contests due to a balky left hamstring. With the injury seemingly behind him, the second baseman can focus his attention on upholding his impressive turnaround in the second half, during which he's slashed .287/.362/.468 with four homers in 94 at-bats.

Gyorko (hamstring) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers.

As expected, Gyorko will slot back in Tuesday against right-hander Jimmy Nelson after missing three starts with a hamstring concern. He'll man second base and bat fifth. Gyorko has improved his OPS by more than 100 points since his July 28 return from the DL, with 25 base knocks (nine extra-base hits) in his last 88 at-bats.

Gyorko (hamstring) expects to start Tuesday against the Brewers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gyorko played in a pinch-hitting role Monday, and appears to be on track for a Tuesday return to the lineup. He hasn't produced at the major league level even when healthy, slashing .199/.255/.332 over 81 games this season, but will look to finish strong with a good month of September.

Gyorko (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Brewers, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gyorko is still listed on the Padres' lineup card as a reserve, so it would seem the team is still optimistic he'll avoid the DL. The second sacker will miss his third straight game as a result of the injury, but could still enter Monday's game as a pinch-hitter.

Gyorko (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Though Gyorko will miss his second straight game due to a tight hamstring, the Padres' medical staff doesn't believe he'll require a trip to the DL. He was able to pinch-hit in Saturday's game and should be available off the bench again Sunday in a similar capacity.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Saturday after tweaking his left hamstring in Thursday's game, and is day-to-day, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

He was able to play through the ailment Friday, but the team decided to give him the day off Saturday, and it's not clear if he'll be able to get back in the lineup Sunday. Yangervis Solarte will fill in at second base Saturday.

Gyorko is out of the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

This looks like a routine day off for Gyorko, who has started 23 straight games for the Padres since coming off the DL late last month. Gyorko's season numbers still look abysmal thanks to a painfully slow start, but he's gone 25-for-86 (.290 average) with four homers since his return.

Gyorko belted his ninth home run of the year, while going 2-for-5 at the plate with three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

While Gyorko's season numbers are an eyesore (.203/.256/.342 slash line in 281 at-bats), he has been playing a lot better since he's been activated off the DL on July 28. Since then he has hit .311 with four home runs and 20 RBI.
