by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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' Black on Gyorko: 'He's a very confident hitter'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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

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

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.
