JEDD GYORKO RUMORS & GOSSIP
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...
In a recent article at Grantland, Jonah Keri profiled a number of potential breakout candidates for the 2014 season, highlighting Padres hurler Andrew Cashner. He also, in that same piece, mentioned fellow Padres Jedd Gyorko and Yonder Alonso as potential breakout players.
For fans of most teams, this would something to celebrate. For the angst-filled Padres fan, however, news of...
(Eds: Adds details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By MIKE CRANSTON Associated Press Jedd Gyorko was a pleasant surprise in a mostly forgettable 2013 season for the San Diego Padres.
Gyorko not only made the team coming out of spring training, he earned the starting job at second base. He then led all National League rookies with 23 home runs and his 63 RBIs were the most on the team...

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...
Daniel Murphy and Jedd Gyorko are complete opposite hitters. Murphy's ability to make contact has led to a very low strike out percentage and a top 10 BABIP at .315. Gyrko on the other hand is build from the swing for the fences mode and as we all know, power is king in fantasy. Both players have a place in fantasy baseball, but which player would you rather have on your...
Jedd Gyorko led the 2013 Padres with 63 RBI. That’s a sad number, and this is a sad table:
Excluding the strike-shortened 1981 campaign, these are the lowest totals by single-season RBI leaders in Padres history. The numbers are almost as sad...
I am most excited about drafting Jedd Gyorko. I am most confident that first sentence sounds best if said in an Apu or Balki Bartokomous voice. Surprised that Gyorko feels like he's under the radar still even though he had 23 homers in only 125 games and for about a month after he returned, he was playing hurt. Playing Hurt was also the lead single off my 2nd album, "...
In 2012, Jedd Gyorko hit 30 HR in 557 minor league PA. Most of that production came in the AAA version of heaven: the Pacific Coast League. Leaving the PCL and heading to PETCO, could Gyorko come close to producing those kinds of power numbers, especially against major league pitchers?
A strong finish to 2013 saw the Padres slugging infield prospect hit 15 HR in...
In 2010 the Padres selected Jedd Gyorko in the 2nd round of the first-year player draft. Today he was given the number nine and a spot on the opening day roster. Congratulations to Jedd, he’s a hard worker, good guy, and will be a solid baseball player.
With that said, I couldn’t disagree more with this move. I don’t want to hear, “the front office is showing...
