Return of the Jedd? Aye.

I’ll make this very brief, as there’s a thunderstorm moving in and I want to get my laptop unplugged before the lightning starts blowing s**t up. The Padres made a roster move today, placing Cory Spangenberg on the disabled list with a left knee contusion (bone bruise) and bringing back Opening Day second baseman Jedd Gyorko from AAA El Paso. #Padres roster move; Gyorko...

Hot May Has Cory Spangenberg Among Top NL Rookies

When a team drafts a player tenth overall, they are doing so with the hopes of him someday being a big part of the team’s everyday lineup. But for the San Diego Padres’ 2011 draft pick Cory Spangenberg, his original impact with his ball club in the 2015 season has been as the team’s super-utility player off the bench.

Q&A: Cory Spangenberg, San Diego Padres Infield Prospect

Hindsight being 20/20, Corey Spangenberg was probably an overdraft. Two years ago, the San Diego Padres took the speedy second baseman 10th overall. George Springer and Jose Fernandez, among others, were still on the board. That doesn’t mean Spangenberg won’t be a productive big-leaguer. The 22-year-old has great wheels, and his left-handed stroke shows plenty of promise. Playing...
