Jedd Gyorko With Chase Headley out, the Padres are exploring internal option options.  Josh Byrnes during an interview on Mighty 1090 stated that he has discussed with Bud Black the plan that would include” vs. RHP Gyorko at 3rd Amarista at 2nd vs. LHP Cody Ransom at 3rd Gyorko at 2nd This in lieu of Logan Forsythe being out with a foot injury.  Jedd Gyorko a Padres top prospect has only hit .283 this springs and is not hitting the cover off the ball right now.  Yet, it seems the Padres agenda is to promote him anyway.  MLBTR explains that Padres would lose a year of team control is they promote Gyorko before late April and he would be Super 2 eligible is promoted before mid-June.  If he opens the season with the big league club, it would appear as though the Padres FO values having Gyorko on the roster for one month in 2012 more valuable than an entire season in 2019. Side note: James Darnell, also a third baseman is still recovering from an oblique injury.
