Cory Spangenberg starts second straight for Padres


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Cory Spangenberg starts his second straight game at second base for the Padres on Friday night. 

Jedd Gyorko, who opened the season hitting .163, is out of the lineup for the third straight game. 

The Padres are +107 money line underdogs at home against the Dodgers.


Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko sits for second straight game Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko was absent from the starting lineup for a second straight game Thursday against the Rockies. Cory Spangenberg drew his first start at second base after Yangervis Solarte started there Wednesday.

Gyorko has gotten off to a poor start offensively in 2015. He is batting .163 (7 for 43) with no home runs, two doubles, three RBI and nine strikeouts in 12 games.


Padres' Jedd Gyorko may be close to breaking out of slump


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Despite his struggles at the plate this season, which includes an 0 for 5 on Saturday, Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko's may be close to finding his swing, according to UTSanDiego.com.

Two of Gyorko's five outs on Saturday were drives to the warning track in center field with the wind blowing in at Wrigley Field.

"Obviously, you want the hits to start falling, but we’re not out chasing a hit," Gyorko said. "It’s a process that we started, and I think it’s starting to come out a little bit."

Coming into Sunday, Gyorko's batting average is .121 -- the lowest among the team's regulars.

"Any other given day, Jedd probably has two or three home runs here," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He seems to be laying off a little bit of the ball down and away, laying off the high fastball. Didn’t result in any hits [Saturday], but the quality of the at-bats seem to be better."


Padres' Jedd Gyorko back in lineup Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is back in the starting lineup Wednesday, batting seventh in his team's matchup against the Diamondbacks.

Gyorko started five of the team's first six games at second base, but Yangervis Solarte served as the starting second baseman for each of the last three games. Gyorko has hit just .143/.217/.190 with one RBI in 21 at-bats.

The Padres are favorites (-127) against the Diamondbacks Wednesday.


Padres' Jedd Gyorko out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Manager Bud Black will use switch-hitter Yangervis Solarte at second base and slot him second in the starting lineup Sunday. Gyorko gets a break after going 3 for 21 in his first six games.

The Padres are favorites (-130) at home against the Giants Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Padres' Black on Gyorko: 'He's a very confident hitter'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Padres manager Bud Black called second baseman Jedd Gyorko a "very confident hitter" Tuesday, U-T San Diego reports.

"His intent is to hit," Black said. "He’s a very confident hitter, and when you think you can hit, you swing."

Pitchers exploited Gyorko's aggressiveness last season, and he struck out 100 times in 400 at-bats while hitting .210/.280/.333 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI. He hit better after spending nearly two months on the disabled list due to a plantar fasciitis. He focused on adding muscle this offseason.

"I went a little lighter last year in an attempt to get a little more flexibility," he said. "Obviously, it didn’t work, so I tried to beef back up. I tried to get as strong as I could coming into camp."

The team added plenty of offensive talent this offseason, and the team won't be forced to rely upon Gyorko to be a rock in the heart of the lineup this season.

"Unfairly, we probably put a lot of pressure on Jedd to be a guy in the middle of the order," Black said. “And I think he’ll eventually be a solid run producer there … I think another year of experience, being in amongst a group of (Justin) Upton and (Matt) Kemp, (Carlos) Quentin, whoever might be in the lineup, there will be a little bit of pressure off him to be the guy. I think guys like pressure. Guys want expectations. That’s what makes guys tick … Jedd has that. But when you have good players around you, it does put your mind at ease."


Padres' Jedd Gyorko doing extra work on swing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is putting in extra time before scheduled baseball activities as he tries to improve his mechanics, MLB.com reports.

"The cage and the BP work are good," Gyorko said. "Now, I've just got to find a way to take it into the games."

Gyorko has just six hits in 32 at-bats this spring while striking out 16 times, and a National League scout said recently that his front hip is coming up early in his setup, causing a longer and slower swing, and that he might not be picking up pitches as well as he has in the past. He's been working with the team's hitting coaches to keep his hips closed but hasn't been completely successful.

"I know they've worked on a number of things, things that are going to help in the long term. But there are no quick fixes in this game. You got to work at it," manager Bud Black said. "We have got a number of guys that are working on a few things that [hopefully] in two weeks' time things will smooth out and we'll see results. But if you've been in this game long enough, you know that spring training results can be misleading."


Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko working on swing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is working on his swing in the early stages of camp, and one area of focus is keeping his hips aligned to not be vulnerable to pitches away, MLB.com reports.

"We're making sure the hips stay in so they don't come out like they did at the beginning of last year to make sure everything is working in the right direction," Gyorko said of his work with hitting coach Mark Kotsay. "It allows me to see the ball a little longer and a little better. It will allow me to hit the ball the other way with power or just shoot it the other way, and gets me on time to pull the ball so I don't get jammed."

Gyorko played just 111 games last season due to plantar fasciitis, hitting .210/.280/.333 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI in 400 at-bats.


Padres' Bud Black: Jedd Gyorko 'learned a lot' from 2014 struggles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) 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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) 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 hopes to play Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) 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."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Gyorko pushed across his team's first run of the game on a third-inning single. He then gave the Padres their first lead of the night with his seventh-inning grand slam, which turned a one-run deficit into a lead the bullpen would not relinquish. Gyorko's home run was his first of August, and he now owns a .199/.253/.331 line with eight home runs and 41 RBI in 272 at-bats.


Jedd Gyorko 'pretty comfortable' since return from DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) 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 start 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 homers, drives in four in big night Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He's 6 for 11 in three games since returning from a lengthy absence caused by plantar fasciitis. Gyorko has hit .181/.232/.302 with six home runs and 29 RBI in 215 at-bats.


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."
