Padres' Bud Black: Jedd Gyorko 'learned a lot' from 2014 struggles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/27/15) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko definitely went through a sophomore slump in 2014 after belting 23 home runs as a rookie in 2013. Although, dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot certainly didn't help his cause.
Still, Gyorko seems to indicate the injury wasn't the main reason he struggled offensively last season. He hit .210 with 10 home runs in 111 games.
"I think I maybe put a little too much pressure on myself," Gyorko said, per MLB.com. "We were struggling as a team. And I think all of us, not just myself, felt like we needed to come up with that big hit to get us going. It's hard to hit when you put that kind of pressure on yourself."
Gyorko missed nearly two months of games last season due to the foot injury, but once he returned, his numbers began to improve. He hit .260 with a .347 on-base percentage over his final 55 games.
"He was better. I think he started making some adjustments, some mechanical, some at-bat to at-bat in terms of pitch selection," manager Bud Black said. "Before, you saw him chasing pitches up in the strike zone and also sliders away. I think that a lot of that was him wanting to be aggressive and wanting to help the team."
The Padres are expecting better results from Gyorko in 2015, especially with a revamped lineup that includes Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Derek Norris and Will Middlebrooks.
"We saw in 2013 what Jedd can be, and I think there's more to Jedd based on 2013," Black said. "I think last year there were a lot of factors that went into his season that he expected or adjusted to, but that is something he's hopefully learned from. It's a tough game. You've got to work and stay on top of it. In that regard, I think he learned a lot."
Jedd Gyorko extends hit streak to 10 games
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko went 1 for 4 and scored two runs in Friday's 5-0 win over the Giants.
Gyorko has recorded at least one hit in 10 straight games, extending what's been a very good second half after struggling early in the season and missing an extended period of time on the disabled list. He has hit .272/.346/.426 with five home runs and 27 RBI in 169 at-bats since the All-Star break after hitting .162/.213/.270 in the first half.
Jedd Gyorko back in starting lineup Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/26/14) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.
Gyorko has been limited to pinch-hitting duties over the last few days while dealing with a hamstring injury. He owns a .199/.255/.332 line with nine home runs and 44 RBI in 292 at-bats.
Jedd Gyorko hopes to play Tuesday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/26/14) Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko was held out of the starting lineup for the third straight day Monday with a hamstring injury, but U-T San Diego reports he is expected back Tuesday against the Brewers.
Gyorko was able to appear as a pinch-hitter Monday, and though he doesn't think that guarantees him a spot in the lineup Tuesday, he is hopeful.
"It is a good sign, but it was more a process of elimination than anything – there was no one left on the bench," Gyorko said. "But we're getting there. We'll see how it feels, but I should be in there tomorrow."
Second base tiers for Draft Day 2015
If you don't just have to have one certain player, here's your draft solution. Scott White breaks down six levels of second-base options.
|2014 summary: A power burst at the end of 2013 left Fantasy owners hoping for a breakout in 2014, but Jedd Gyorko went in the opposite direction to begin his second season in the majors. He batted .162 with five home runs through his first 56 games before spending close to two months on the disabled list with plantar fasciitis. Gyorko didn't produce much more when he returned. Though he batted .260 after his activation, Gyorko's five homers and 12 doubles in 196 at-bats kept him well below his level of power production from his rookie season. |
Playing time status: Gyorko will resume his duties as the Padres' regular second baseman.
2015 outlook: The effects of plantar fasciitis can linger, and Gyorko's second-half performance was not encouraging. If he returns to his rookie levels, Gyorko would have an outside chance at 30 home runs, but that is probably far too optimistic. A middling batting average with 20 home runs is probably more attainable, and that is only enough to make him a late-round option in standard mixed leagues.
