Jedd Gyorko Jedd Gyorko

In a pair of predictable and related roster moves, the Padres are expected to activate second baseman Jedd Gyorko from the 15-day disabled list and place outfielder Carlos Quentin on the 15-day disabled list,’s Corey Brock reports. Infielder Brooks Conrad will also be optioned to Triple-A El Paso.

Gyorko has been on the disabled list since June 4 with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The 25-year-old was having a miserable season, owning a paltry .162/.213/.270 slash line with five home runs and 24 RBI in 221 plate appearances.

Quentin has been bothered by soreness in his left knee and has started only three of nine games since the All-Star break. The 31-year-old has only accrued 155 plate appearances this season due to yet more health issues. He has an uninspiring .177/.284/.315 slash line with four home runs and 18 RBI.

    I wonder when Gyorko is moved back to his natural position at third base? They have Solarte hitting .300 at second now, but they sent down 2B Conrad.

      Its not his natural position. He never played it at any time in little league, high school or college before coming to the Padres minor leagues and he was a terrible 3B then. He hasnt played a single game at 3B on this rehab assignment. What makes you think they will play him there?

        Just wondering, do you just spout out random false information?

        “There’s a chance, Hart says, that Gyorko won’t remain at second base for the long term. If the Padres don’t retain Chase Headley, they could move Gyorko back to his natural position at the hot corner.”

      Quentin and Maybin need to go Bye Bye. They are a waste of space.

        So are you chargrz. No clue why you hang out in Padre threads when you bash them every time. Terrible fan.

        Reggie was right when he said “they don’t boo nobodies.” So chargrz’ negativity reminds us that the Padres are still in the majors and still matter.

    Dont really care what Hart said, its wrong. Go look it up. You obviously have the internet. Look up his position in college. Shortstop his freshman and junior years and 2B in his sophomore year. Not a single game at 3B. Go look up his scouting reports when he was in high school and his games in All America games and even the Morgantown PONY league program. Not a single game at 3B. Then finally go look at his interviews in his first year as a pro at Eugene in the Padres system. He says himself that he has never played 3B before at any level but that he was sure he could adapt to it. In an interview in his rookie season he said “Moving to second base wasn’t too bad, because it wasn’t completely foreign at second base like moving to third base was in Eugene…” Gyorko also said in another interview prior to being called up that year, “I enjoy second,” said Gyorko. “That was my original position. I started playing short in high school. I grew up in youth ball as a second baseman. I’m excited about the possibility of playing second again.”
    So you see his NATURAL position was second base. He moved to shortstop because he was a good athlete. The Padres said something like, Hey, this kid is a good enough athlete to play shortstop with a strong arm, I bet he could play 3B. So they put him at 3B in Eugene for the first time.
    Now I don’t want you to believe me. Go do your own research. You will find I am correct. Some hints to help you out. He went to University High School in Morgantown West Virginia and then was West Virginia Mountaineer in college. Shoot, you could just look at wiki if you are lazy, but where is the fun in that.
