Mets hold onto Bartolo Colon, Daniel Murphy for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:13 pm ET) The Thursday non-waiver trade deadline came and went without the Mets making any deals, despite starting pitcher Bartolo Colon and Daniel Murphy being mentioned in rumors. The Mets are expected to see if the market improves for both players in the offseason, reports the New York Post.

Jedd Gyorko 'pretty comfortable' since return from DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:56 am ET) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko has five RBI in his last two games since returning from the disabled list. That equals the total he compiled in 21 games before he landed on the DL.

Gyorko homered, doubled and singled with four RBI in a Wednesday night rout of St. Louis. He is 6 for 11 since coming back.

"It's more of a fresh shart than anything," Gyorko told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "What happened at the beginning, you can't go back and change it and you can't say it didn't happen either - it's there. It's not something I like to think about a whole lot, but it's something you can learn from. Obviously, things weren't right, but I think I've gotten to the point where I'm pretty comfortable now."

Gyorko made a splash in 2013 with 23 home runs. He has a long way to go to make his 2014 numbers respectable - he is still saddled with a stat line of .171/.224/.276.

Jedd Gyorko returns from DL confident he will bounce back


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Before landing on the disabled list in early June with a foot injury, Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko was having a rough run at the plate, batting .162 in 56 games. Though, now that he has returned from the DL, he seems confident his offensive woes are in the past.

"I think my swing is feeling more like it did last year than it has all year," Gyorko said, per MLB.com. "Hopefully, that translates into the big leagues. I'm not worried about what's happened in the past. We have got two months of baseball left.

"I don't know how much luck goes into it. I'm going just try to hit the ball hard. If you hit the ball hard enough times, good things will happen eventually."

Manager Bud Black also seems to have confidence Gyorko will turn it around offensively.

"We need him to hit. ... He's a good hitter," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Where his average is now, do I think he's that kind of hitter? No. He's got a long ways to go to get to his lifetime average. He can play better."
