Gyorko remains on track to open the season in a third-base platoon with Eric Sogard, according to Will Sammon of The Athletic.
Injuries limited Gyorko to 62 games last season and contributed to him finishing the campaign with a lowly .498 OPS. According to the report, "Gyorko said he is as healthy as he's been and feels like he has plenty left," and the Brewers will give him a chance to prove that, at least in some capacity. Gyorko possesses the defensive versatility the Brewers seek in their part-time players, but the club does have several other players capable of filling his role, so his hold on a roster spot will be somewhat tenuous.
Gyorko appears on track to open the season in a third-base platoon with Eric Sogard, according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Gyorko struggled at the plate to close out the 2019 season with the Dodgers, hitting just .139/.205/.167 with 10 strikeouts across 39 plate appearances after returning from an assortment of wrist, calf and back injuries. The 31-year-old is fully healthy heading in to spring training with the Brewers and is expected to serve in a platoon role alongside Eric Sogard at third base. The right-handed-hitting veteran could potentially serve as a backup option at first base as well and will be competing with fellow offseason additions Ryon Healy and Brock Holt for at-bats as the season approaches.
Gyorko signed with the Brewers on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The veteran battled multiple injuries last season and wound up struggling through 101 plate appearances with the Cardinals and Dodgers, hitting just .174/.248/.250. With a career wRC+ of exactly 100 and the ability to fill in all around the infield, Gyorko should be a useful part-time player if he's able to return to full health.
The Dodgers declined Gyorko's $13 million club option for 2020 on Sunday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
Gyorko was acquired by the Dodgers from the Cardinals ahead of July's trade deadline but had only 39 plate appearances in 24 games with Los Angeles, so it's no surprise to see the team is moving on given the $13 million figure. Overall it was pretty much a lost season for the veteran infielder, as he spent much of 2019 on the injured list and struggled with a .174/.248/.250 slash line in 62 games when healthy.
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.
The Cardinals have pulled back Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) from his planned rehab at Triple-A Memphis and moved him off the 40-man roster in order to explore trade options, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The 30-year-old looks destined to head to another organization. He's played just 38 games this season in the majors, slashing a mere .196/.274/.304. Gyorko could regain a hint of fantasy value for the rest of the season with a clear path to playing time, but that's far from certain.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday and will begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
The change in Gyorko's status wasn't due to any worsening of his condition, but rather, to make room for reliever Adalberto Mejia on the 40-man roster. Gyorko is still likely weeks away from activation, although that timeline could naturally change depending on how his stint with the Redbirds unfolds.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gyorko was cleared for game action after taking batting practice with no issues Friday. Seeing as the infielder has been sidelined since the beginning of June, he'll likely require a lengthy rehab assignment before he's cleared to return from the injured list.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) took batting practice Friday and will be evaluated by the team's medical staff Saturday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
A report Thursday indicated Gyorko would actually be checked out Friday and would potentially participate in batting practice over the weekend, but the order was reversed. Another update on Gyorko is likely to be available by early next week after team doctors evaluate his progress from multiple injuries.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) will be evaluated by the team's medical staff at Busch Stadium on Friday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. "We'll look at Jedd tomorrow in total with his baseball activities and see what that looks like, coupled with the medical staff," manager Mike Shildt said. "And then we'll have a conversation with Jedd on Saturday, where we all think we're at."
Depending on how Friday's evaluation goes, Gyorko could potentially take batting practice over the weekend. The veteran utility man has already been ramping up his baseball activities, including taking swings off a tee. Gyorko still projects for an early September return, as he would presumably need a multi-game rehab assignment prior to activation after an extensive layoff.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) is "slightly ahead of schedule" in his recovery, but he still remains without a timetable for return, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.
Last Wednesday, Gyorko took swings off a tee for the first time since his wrist surgery on June 24, the latest incremental step toward an eventual return. However, as Monday's report indicates, there's still no firm recovery timeline that can be applied to Gyorko and his multiple injuries, and he'll presumably continue building up his activity level in coming weeks.
Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) took swings off a tee Wednesday for the first time since undergoing wrist surgery June 24, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Gyorko still projects to be on the shelf for several more weeks, but he reported being pleased with his progress following Wednesday's developments. The veteran utility man added that he hopes to be ready for a rehab assignment within about two weeks, and that the left calf strain that originally landed him on the injured list is no longer an issue. Gyorko is next slated for flip drills and batting practice, with both steps necessary before he returns to any type of game action.
Manager Mike Shildt said Gyorko (back/calf/wrist) won't be re-evaluated for another month, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Gyorko landed on the injured list with a lower-back strain in early June, suffered a calf injury while rehabbing and then underwent wrist surgery June 22. The 30-year-old may not return prior to September since he should require a lengthy rehab stint to get back up to speed once he's cleared.
Gyorko, who's on the injured list with a calf issue and is also nursing a lower-back strain, will undergo a minor arthroscopic procedure on his right wrist Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
Gyorko is certainly getting bang for his buck with respect to his stint on the injured list, as he'll now take advantage of his down time to correct wrist pain he's been enduring for more than two years. Gyorko has been getting through the discomfort with periodic shots, but with the versatile utility man out of action due to his two other injuries, this appears to be an opportune time to address what manager Mike Shildt has termed "a cleanup" of a long-standing problem.
Gyorko suffered a calf injury Tuesday while rehabbing from a lower-back strain, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
Gyorko was eligible to return from the injured list but now won't be doing so any time soon. The severity of the calf injury is not yet clear.
Gyorko (back) ran the bases Tuesday and took ground balls during Wednesday's batting practice, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Gyorko's recovery from a lower-back strain seems to be advancing smoothly, and barring a setback. he's expected to return when first eligible Tuesday. The versatile veteran is enduring a career-worst season thus far, slashing just .196/.274/.304 with two home runs and seven RBI across 62 plate appearances.
