Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Smacks monster homer in batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gyorko produced mixed results in Monday's batting practice session, struggling against Carlos Martinez but hitting a monstrous homer off Trevor Rosenthal, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The slugging infielder, who smacked 30 homers in his first Cardinals season in 2016, made waves in the morning session with a blast to right field off Rosenthal, who is trying to make the transition from closer to middle reliever or starter this spring. As encouraging as his round-tripper off Rosenthal was, Gyorko had also been humbled in an earlier round of at-bats against Martinez, who stymied him with his trademark changeup. "He's got good stuff. He's the guy that we leaned on last year, and we're going to lean on him again this year to be quality and go out and give us good innings."

Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Will practice at every infield position this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gyorko, who played second base, third base and shortstop in his first Cardinals season in 2016, is devoting his attention to a different position each day in spring training, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Each and every day, a focus," Gyorko said. "It's pretty similar to what I did last season, but I think there's the one position each day that makes sense."

Gyorko made his mark last season both at the plate and on the field, as he smacked 30 home runs overall and hit more second-half home runs than anyone in the majors other than Brian Dozier. He was also a valuable asset defensively and could add first base to his resume this season in addition to the three positions he played in 2016. Although he's currently slated to challenge Jhonny Peralta for the third base job, the possibility exists that he could be deployed in a platoon with Kolten Wong at second. Wherever he lands, Gyorko is intent on being prepared, and will look to be as efficient with his power stroke as he was last season, when he was the only player in the majors with as many as 30 homers and fewer than 110 hits overall.

Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Slated to play third base more in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gyorko's primary position in 2017 is expected to be third base, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Gyorko split time fairly evenly between second base and the hot corner in 2016, but the club wants to give Kolten Wong another chance to prove himself worthy of being their daily option at second. However, Gyorko blasted 30 home runs over 125 games in 2016, so St. Louis will make an effort to keep his bat in the lineup. To do so, he'll get more reps at third base, but will share the spot with Jhonny Peralta in some capacity.

Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Blasts 30th homer in win over Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gyorko went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead eighth-inning solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Pirates.

The veteran second baseman took reliever Felipe Rivero deep with a 369-foot shot, breaking a 3-3 tie and providing the Cardinals with a one-run lead that would hold in the ninth. Gyorko has only one hit apiece in each of his last three games, but they've all been solo homers. He now has a career-high 30 homers and has also tallied the second-best RBI total (58) of his career in his first season in a Cardinals uniform.

Cardinals' Jedd Gyorko: Sits out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gyorko is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

Gyorko's power and versatility have offered him a regular spot in the lineup lately for the Cardinals, but he'll get a day off Tuesday. Jhonny Peralta will fill in at the hot corner, while Aledmys Diaz and Greg Garcia take over the middle infield spots.
