Jedd Gyorko 2B/3B SD 6 Hrs

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.

Gyorko hit a grand slam off of the Cardinals' Kevin Siegrist to put the Padres ahead in their win Saturday night. He became the Padres' all-time leader among second basemen in homers with his 31st in his career, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Gyorko's shot came in a steady rain that ultimately created a rain delay. He has been facing a steady diet of bases loaded opportunities, and this time he came up big just before Mother Nature did.

Gyorko went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Since returning from the DL on July 28 after a nearly two-month absence, Gyorko has looked like an entirely different hitter than the one who slashed a pathetic .162/.213/.270 in the first half. Thanks to stark improvements in both good fortune (.425 BABIP in second half, vs. .192 in first half) and his line drive rate (31.0%, vs. 16.6%), Gyorko has slashed .333/.387/.526 over his 62 plate appearances since rejoining the lineup. Expect his rest-of-season production to ultimately settle somewhere between both extremes.
