Jedd Gyorko 2B SD 2 Days

Gyorko is batting .263 with one home run and one RBI in 38 at-bats. He has 16 strikeouts against three walks over that span, and MLB.com's Corey Brock reported that Gyorko's mechanics at the dish have resulted in a longer swing that has contributed to the elevated K rate.

Brock reported that Gyorko is putting in extra time in the cage trying to remedy his swing, but it hasn't been translating to games thus far. Gyorko has looked better lately with four hits in his last two games, but his value is hampered right now by his plate discipline.

Gyorko is not in Tuesday's lineup, the Union-Tribune's Jeff Sanders reports.

At this point, Gyorko is one of the few everyday players on the Padres, as they've been using a variety of different lineups down the stretch, so it's noticeable when he's out of the lineup. Cory Spangenberg will get the start at second as Gyorko gets a night off.

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.
