Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday, but manager Bud Black just told Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune that he’s not close to being recovered from plantar fasciitis.
According to Black “the foot isn’t healing very quickly” so he continues to wear a walking boot and there’s no stated timetable for Gyorko’s return to the lineup.
Gyorko’s impressive rookie season last year convinced the Padres to give him a $35 million long-term contract after just 125 games in the majors, but he got off to a horrendous start before being shut down by hitting .162 with 56 strikeouts in 56 games. Alexi Amarista and Jace Peterson have been sharing time at second base in his absence.
