Gyorko went 1-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Reds. Gyorko has started the last two games after being relegated to pinch-hit duty following a disabled list stint due to a hamstring injury. The veteran infielder has gone a combined 1-for-7 over that span but hasn't experienced any setbacks with the hammy, leaving him poised to potentially help fantasy owners during the final stretch of the regular season.
Gyorko (hamstring) is starting at third base and batting seventh Tuesday against the Reds, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Gyorko had been limited to pinch-hitting duties in his first few days back, but he's ready to make his first start since Aug. 26 after being cleared to run the bases and play the field. It's unclear how many at-bats he'll see down the stretch with Jose Martinez and Matt Carpenter manning the infield corners, but the 28-year-old should at least collect some playing time against left-handed pitching.
Gyorko (hamstring) is expected to be fully available for this week's series against the Reds, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. It sounds like Gyorko will be cleared to run the bases and play the field Tuesday after being limited to pinch-hitting duty in his first several days back from the disabled list. Gyorko's power production has declined this season, and his at-bats may be scaled back over the remainder of the campaign with Jose Martinez and Matt Carpenter warranting most of the time in the infield corners, but Gyorko should at least get opportunities against left-handed pitching.
Gyorko (hamstring) recently fielded groundballs, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. The infielder is off the disabled list but not expected to return to game action for another week, at the earliest. Gyorko must prove he can do more baseball activities in the interim. St. Louis is getting by without him with Matt Carpenter at third base and a mix of options in the middle infield.
Gyorko (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against Cincinnati. Gyorko has been making steady progress while recovering from a hamstring injury, but he isn't expected to be ready to start for another week and a half. Since it doesn't directly benefit the Cardinals to have Gyorko on the DL, the club activated him from the shelf while he's set to continue ramping up his activity in the coming days. He should be able to pinch hit for the time being, but the club will likely be cautious as to not aggravate his existing injury. Within the next few days, the Cardinals are hopeful that Gyorko will be able to start participating in fielding drills, placing his return to the lineup around next weekend.
