JEDD GYORKO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jedd Gyorko and Brandon Moss Powering Cardinals

Last season, 64 players hit at least 20 home runs. It was 57 the year before. This year, there are already 68 players with 20 home runs and, with six weeks of the season remaining, there are another 40 players with at least 15 home runs who have at least a shot. Two of the players powering up this year, Jedd Gyorko and Brandon Moss, were relatively recent under-the-radar acquisitions...

Quick reaction to Gyorko trade

It is harder when homegrown Padres leave. Jedd Gyorko was drafted by the organization in 2010.  He quickly moved up the ranks and found himself on the opening day roster in 2013.  He set a team rookie record for home runs and everyone was giddy. But, I wrote at the time: As is often the case with first-year players he needs to cut down on his strikeout/walk rate (2.75/1) but he...

Padres Reportedly Shipping Jedd Gyorko to St. Louis

In a deal which will presumably make more sense when all the details come out than it does now, the Cardinals are reportedly set to acquire Jedd Gyorko for Jon Jay, with perhaps other players (or money) being in the deal. Source: Jon Jay is going to San Diego. https://t.co/9GHVvrxqDV — Derrick Goold (@dgoold) December 8, 2015 The Padres need a center fielder and more left-handed...

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...

Len Kasper drops all too obvious Seinfeld reference about Jedd Gyorko

During Saturday’s Cubs-Padres game, which hadn’t reached the depressing stage yet in the second inning, Cubs pitcher struck out Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko to end the second inning. WGN broadcaster Len Kasper had the perfect call for the punchout. You see, Gyorko’s name isn’t pronounced how it’s spelled – it’s pronounced “jerk-oh”. Needless to say, Kasper’s...

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...

Jedd Gyorko and the Contract Extension of Doom

Or “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Private Hotel Suite on Road Trips” Yesterday, Dustin of The Sacrifice Bunt gave you a little insight into the perceived value of Gyorko’s extension. He looked at recent contracts given to players with similar service time, Starling Marte and Andrelton Simmons. Of the three players, Jedd Gyorko fell in the middle of both projected...
