Jedd Gyorko starts at shortstop for first time, makes great play

Jedd Gyorko had played nearly every position in the infield at the major-league level other than the one he grew up playing, but that changed on Monday. As the Padres search for a good fit at shortstop, interim manager Pat Murphy penciled in Gyorko at the position on Monday, marking the first time he's played the position in The Show. "Obviously Pat has confidence in me, and I have...

Jedd Gyorko and the risks of long term deals for younger players.

The San Diego Padres bit the bullet today by optioning second baseman Jedd Gyorko and his $35 million contract to the minors. Gyorko had struggled considerably at the plate over the last two seasons. After a breakout rookie year in 2013 that saw him hit 23 home runs with a .249 batting average, Gyorko just barely hit above the Mendoza line and didn’t show the same power. Manager...

We Need to Talk About Jedd

In 2010 the Padres utilized a second round pick on a shortstop out of West Virginia by the name of Jedd Gyorko. He was viewed by most throughout MLB prior to that draft to be a bit of a defensive liability at shortstop and the thought was that he’d move positions (his arm being strong enough to play anywhere on the diamond). Gyorko in 2010? He didn’t care.  Where I play [on...

Jedd Gyorko and a post that’s not really about Orlando Hudson but is about pain

Jedd Gyorko returned from the Paternity List yesterday the proud father of twin boys. He was just in time to catch the rubber-game of an early NL West showdown with the 1st place San Francisco Giants. Unfortunately, the Giants took the game 3-2, and with it the series. But Jedd Gyorko was back. No,  Jedd Gyorko is back. The West Virginian, in going 1 for 3 with zero K’s, reminded...

Gyorko remaining the same level-headed man, even after his big contract extension

Forget designer jeans and gold necklaces. Armani? Not for this guy. Jedd Gyorko's big fashion statement comes on those days when he breezes into the clubhouse to punch in for work rocking a Cabela's cap. Uh, that's Cabela's. You know, "The World's Foremost Outfitter for Hunting, Fishing & Outdoor Gear." Says so right on the company's Web site. "That's part of what makes Jedd...

Projecting a Jedd Gyorko Contract Extension

Extensions. We love to talk about extensions. Or a lack of extensions. But for now lets focus on a single extension candidate: Jedd Gyorko. Gyorko came into the 2013 season as the Padres third best prospect per a handsome blogger and managed to lead San Diego’s offense in a disappointing season. Early in the season we examined giving Gyorko the Evan Longoria extension, and recently...

Still Haven’t Locked Up Gyorko? Now THAT’S Insane!

Last May, I posted a piece regarding a Jonah Keri appearance on The Darren Smith Show where Keri talked about how he would, at that moment, call up Jedd Gyorko‘s agent and buy him out through the age of 31. That would buy out all of his arbitration years, plus one. At that time we were discussing the concept, Gyorko had 3 home runs and a .697 OPS. He went on to hit 20 more home...
