(1:18 am ET) Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko continued his strong play Wednesday against the Cardinals with his fifth home run of the season.
Gyorko had a solo homer off Cardinals starting pitcher Tyler Lyons in the seventh inning for the first Padres' run. He added a single and a run scored in the ninth inning of a 5-3 loss. He finished with an RBI and two runs scored, while raising his batting average to .284.
Gyorko is hitting .424 with two home runs and four RBI over the last nine games.

(5/22/13) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko notched three hits in a loss Tuesday against St. Louis.
Gyorko went 3 for 4 with a double and a run scored. The Padres managed just seven hits against St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright and reliever Carlos Martinez, and Gyorko's double was the only extra-base hit. Gyorko is hitting a robust .278/.347/.430.
|Jedd Gyorko hot in May|

(5/20/13) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is on fire after a rough start to the season.
Gyorko hit .247/.317/.323 in April but is hitting .310/.375/.586 in May. Gyorko was starting to show signs of effectiveness in late April, with eight hits in his final four games that month.
Fantasy owners may have dropped Gyorko after a poor start, but he seems to have turned things around. Gyorko is owned in 72 percent of leagues, but he's a must-add for owners who need help in the middle infield or at third base.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/19/13) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko enjoyed his third multi-hit performance in his last five games Sunday afternoon against the Nationals.
Gyorko doubled in a run in the first and singled in one more in the fifth. He finished 2 for 3 with two walks, two runs scored and two RBI in a 13-4 victory.
Gyorko is hitting .421 (8 for 19) with six runs scored, one home run and two RBI in his last five games. He has a .272/.339/.424 slash line in 151 at-bats.
|Jedd Gyorko is a stellar buy-low candidate|

(5/16/13) Due to injuries and suspension, the Padres didn't get their two veteran power bats (Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin) in the lineup together until April 24. At the time, Jedd Gyorko was hitting .229. But from that day Gyorko has hit .299, with an .855 OPS, three home runs (all in May), five doubles and nine runs scored.
Before Quentin and Headley returned, the power production fell on Gyorko and Yonder Alonso. Just to throw a little more on his plate, Gyorko was playing in his first month of major-league baseball and was bouncing between third and second base (he is eligibile at both). But he has 150 plate appearances behind him, some big bats in the lineup, a steady role at second base and the chance to tap into his minor-league potential (55 home runs in 2011 and 2012 and a .319 average over 1,343 at-bats).
Gyorko's April may have turned some owners off, but he had a similar set of lineup circumstances to established slugger Giancarlo Stanton, yet never got the same, "well, his lineup sucks" excuses when he struggled early. Gyorko is owned in 67 percent of leagues but should see that number skyrocket as more Fantasy players take notice of his now-favorable situation.
|On the basis of numbers alone, Jedd Gyorko deserved a shot in the majors last year. The Padres didn't give it to him mostly because they didn't know how he fit in at the time. Chase Headley was breaking out with MVP-like numbers, making him suddenly part of the long-term picture as well. Logan Forsythe was emerging at second base, making Gyorko's transition there something that didn't need to be rushed. So at Triple-A Tucson he sat, except when the time came to bat. Then, he hit -- and oh, did he it. If anything, his 2012 numbers were brought down by his time at Double-A San Antonio. Of course, that's probably the biggest reason to doubt his top-prospect status. As impressive as his minor-league track record is, his best numbers came in the two leagues most skewed toward hitters, the California League and the Pacific Coast League. In two stints in between, his OPS dropped below .800. Even with the fences coming in at PETCO Park, his power stroke is no certainty to translate. Still, he's a well-rounded enough hitter to make an impact in Fantasy, particularly if he moves to second base. Right now, that's the most-likely scenario. The Padres would be willing to move Forsythe to shortstop if Gyorko proves he's ready this spring. Because of that, the 24-year-old has sleeper appeal even in standard mixed leagues.
