      Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Heading to St. Louis

      Gyorko has been traded to the Cardinals, Jenifer Langosch of reports. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports first reported that a deal was close between the two clubs, and Jon Jay appears to be headed to the Padres as the return. Gyorko hit .259/.299/.440 with 13 homers in the second half of last season for the Padres, and it seems as though he'll be used as a utility option around the infield at all four spots with Matt Carpenter, Jhonny Peralta, and Kolten Wong occupying third base, shortstop, and second base, respectively. Gyorko is under contract for four more seasons (through 2019) at a total cost of $32 million, so the Padres are freeing up money by making this deal.

Gyorko continues to roll, as the Padres middle infielder has posted three multi-hit performances in his last four games - a span including two home runs. After a tumultuous 2015 campaign at the major and minor league level, Gyorko has rebounded nicely to secure his role in San Diego's everyday lineup. The 27-year-old's hot hitting has made him an enticing short term option in daily formats.

      Padres' Jedd Gyorko belts 15th homer Saturday in loss to Rockies

      Padres infielder Jedd Gyorko went 2 for 4 with a double and solo homer in Saturday's 10-2 loss to the Rockies. Despite not having played shortstop at the professional level before this season, Gyorko has fielded the position well and boosted his offensive production in 2015. Despite hitting for a low average and providing no speed, Gyorko's .161 ISO makes him a nice middle infield option in deeper formats.

      Consistent contact makes Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko a better hitter

      The windmill that was once Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko at the plate is suddenly not creating so much breeze - and the result has been a much more productive hitter. Gyorko has fanned just four times over the last eight games, which is quite remarkable considering he had 67 strikeouts over his first 231 at-bats this season and 100 in 400 at-bats last year. His newfound ability to make consistent contact, along with his natural power, have combined to allow him to hit safely in eight of his last nine games with two home runs, 10 runs scored and 11 RBI. His average reached a season-high .239 before his hitless effort Sunday.
