Gyorko (wrist) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game in Atlanta. He is starting at first base and hitting fifth against lefty Max Fried. Gyorko should work in the short side of a platoon with the big club, also offering right-handed pop off the bench.
Gyorko (wrist) will be activated from the injured list and start at first base Sunday against the Braves, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports. Gyorko is ready to make his Dodgers debut after completing a nine-game rehab stint between Double-A and Triple-A, during which he hit .333 with two homers in 27 at-bats. He will take over at first base with a lefty (Max Fried) due up for Atlanta in the final game of the series. Most of Gyorko's starting opportunities will come against southpaws.
Manager Dave Roberts said Friday that he expects Gyorko's (back/hamstring/hand) rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City to last around a week before the Dodgers consider reinstating him from the 60-day injured list, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Gyorko has been on the shelf since early June while tending to an assortment of injuries, but he was cleared to resume game action at the minor-league level shortly after being acquired from the Cardinals on July 31. After appearing in two games for Double-A Tulsa, Gyorko began his rehab assignment at Triple-A on Aug. 7 and has suited up in four contests, going 3-for-10 with a home run and three walks. Based on Roberts' comments, it sounds like Gyorko could realistically make his Dodgers debut as soon as this weekend. The 31-year-old will be deployed as a utility infielder whenever he ends up joining the big club.
Gyorko (wrist/calf/back) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Tulsa on Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Gyorko, who was traded from the Cardinals to the Dodgers on Wednesday, will need to complete a rehab assignment before being cleared to join his new team. Seeing as the veteran infielder has been on the shelf for nearly two months, he'll likely need to play in a handful of rehab games before he's activated.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) was traded from the Cardinals to the Dodgers on Wednesday in exchange for Tony Cingrani (shoulder) and Jeffry Abreu, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Gyorko will provide infield depth for the Dodgers, who are currently without Chris Taylor (forearm), Enrique Hernandez (hand) and David Freese (hamstring) thanks to injuries. The veteran infielder has appeared in just 38 games this season due to injuries, slashing .196/.274/.304 with two home runs and two stolen bases. He's not eligible to return from the 60-day injured list until next week.
