DateQuestionAnswer
2016-03-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the impact of Peralta's injury on Kolten Wong's value? There was talk this spring that Wong was headed to a platoon with Jedd Gyorko, but maybe Gyotko will be needed more at SS now with Peralta out. Thoughts?
(Truganini from Co)
I don't know why you'd take at-bats away from Wong--who's better both offensively and defensively--and give them to Gyorko. Maybe Gyorko spells Wong specifically against lefties or something.
And I'm in no hurry to see Gyorko play shortstop either. I think Ruben Tejada was a very savvy pickup and can at least be better than replacement-level, which might not literally be Pete Kozma anymore, but still feels like Pete Kozma. (Michael Baumann)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which longterm contract with paw print tattoos would you rathe have? Jedd Gyorko or Starling Marte?
(Callie Fornya from Vermont)
I didn't love either at the time, but Marte is the guy I'm buying between the two. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jedd Gyorko really as bad as a .182 average? as in did pitchers figure him out?
(Chris from nyc)
Nope, he's not a .182 guy, but he was always likely to be a .250 guy, something closer to .240 given his park/down offensive year in baseball make .230 not hard to believe. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 20 team dynasty league would you give up Jedd Gyorko for Gausman or Zimmer and Alfaro? Seems like good value in return but we have seen what Gyorko has done vs the prospects uncertainty.
(Javy from California)
Yeah, that's fair either way. You're definitely taking the risk in either deal since it involves the pitching AND the unproven pieces, but if you can afford to lose the 2B, I'd go with Gausman (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like at 2b between Profar, Rendon, and Gyorko?
(Jim from Chinatown)
Hi Jim.

Of the three, I like Jedd Gyorko most for this year and Jurickson Profar most long-term. Profar is the guy that I'd take in a keeper without a doubt. (Mike Gianella)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like at 2b between Profar, Rendon, and Gyorko?
(Jim from Chinatown)

2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you prefer long-term? Nolan Arenado or Jedd Gyorko?
(chaneyhey from St. Louis)
Ooh that's tough. I have them close so I have to give Arenado the edge because of his setting. (Paul Sporer)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jedd Gyorko or Anthony Rendon?
(The Kernel from Pasadena, CA)
Rendon (Jason Parks)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best to worst short term NL only keeper (2014-15)... Todd Frazier, Marcell Ozuna, Jedd Gyorko?
(Broken Arrow from Texas)
I think I'd flip the order. Jerk & Ozuna have the upside. Frazier is a WYSIWYG which is fine, but I'd rather gamble on the bigger payoff. (Paul Sporer)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)There is some great fantasy coverage here at BP, but I think there's a gap in the overall literature here and elsewhere. You see a lot of work being done with recommending players that are owned in only a small percentage of leagues. The idea being "here are guys you can go get right now". What that doesn't really tell you, though, is whether those guys are actually better than the ones you have. For example, I have Kyle Seager, Jedd Gyorko, and Daniel Murphy filling out my 2B, MI, and CI slots. Would I be better off dropping Seager for a guy like Yonder Alonso? How do you evaluate a decision like that?
(ravenight from Boston)
I would not get rid of Seager for Alonso. The reason that we can't necessarily outline whether the available players will be better than who you have is bc it's impossible to know everyone's situation so we try to recommend guys for you to consider if you want to make a move. Of course, our Twitter availability, the comments sections, and chat like these are a great forum for the specific questions like yours! For me, the question is whether or not Alonso offers something I need. I think he and Seager offer similar things with Seager having 3B elig. so might as well hold Seags. I do like Yonder, though. (Paul Sporer)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Should I give Kipnis/Burnett for Gyorko/Hosmer?? Thanks! Great Stuff!
(tB from Auburn)
Hi tB.

If you can afford to trade the speed and have a pitcher in reserve to fill in for A.J. Burnett, make the trade. Eric Hosmer is better than Jason Kipnis as a pure talent and while A.J. Burnett might be better than Jedd Gyorko this year, you're getting a much younger player for a player at or near the end of the line. (Mike Gianella)
2013-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know it's an extremely small sample size but Jedd Gyorko has looked much better at second than at third. Would the Padres consider leaving him at second even after trading Headley?
(Major Tom from Space)
Major Tom, how's that tin can treating you? I don't know what the Padres have in mind if a Headley trade happens, but it seems to me Gyorko has more value at second base and they would be well served to keep him there. (Geoff Young)
2013-03-20 11:00:00 (link to chat)Who has a better chance of being a top 120 player next year, Julio Teheran or Jedd Gyorko?
(Brandon from Iowa)
Gyorko, especially if he's eligible at 2B, which appears to be the case. But, note my caveat from before... making the jump from MiLB hitters' parks to PETCO is a big leap. (Cory Schwartz)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Just wondering the reasoning behind the slump in position of Jedd Gyorko (57 last year to 84 this year).
(captchris from England)
I don't like his body and I have a body bias. I'm being honest. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's easy to imagine what can go wrong for the Padres this year. What has to go right for them to be a *good* competitive team -- let's say 80-85 wins?
(Shamu35 from the twitter)
Good question, Shamu. The easy answer is "a lot." More specifically, they need Nick Hundley and Cameron Maybin to step up their games, Jedd Gyorko to establish himself at second base, and most importantly get a surprise or two out of the rotation. That last one is going to be tough, though, as there just isn't anyone who inspires confidence. (Geoff Young)
2012-12-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you expect Jedd Gyorko to land a starting position on the Padres by opening day? How good can this guy be? Thanks for the chat!
(Pete from Kansas City)
He certainly doesn't have anything left to prove at AAA. Do you stick him in LF and hope he adjusts? I'm not sure how I handle this if I'm San Diego. Ultimately he looks like an everyday starter with flashes of All-Star potential. (Ian Miller)
2012-10-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on the sliding prospect stock of Nolan Arenado? No star ceiling anymore? Do you see him or Jedd Gyorko as the higher ceiling prospect at 3b?
(sitdancer from DC)
Still love Arenado; had to expect his numbers to come down a bit from what he put up in the California League, and I think he did well for a 21-year old in AA. Still lots of doubles and lots of contact. I'd take him over Gyorko, who is 2.5 years older and did the bulk of his damage in the Pacific Coast League last year. (Bradley Ankrom)
2012-07-25 13:30:00 (link to chat)Does Jedd Gyorko not being on the 40 man hurt his chances of getting called up immediately if Chase Headley is traded?
(Goose from Morgantown)
San Diego's 40-man is full, and in a general sense, not being on the 40-man is always an additional hurdle in the way of a prospect who's hoping to get called up. In Gyorko's case, it might depend on the return the Padres get for Headley. If they get back prospects, Headley's departure would open up a spot. If they get back any big-league pieces, someone else would have to go for Gyorko to have a spot. But considering Kevin wrote "Not sure what the Padres are waiting for" in reference to Gyorko almost a month ago, and given that his numbers have only improved since then, I'm guessing Gyorko will get a shot if Headley gets traded.

2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Derek- which rookies currently in the minors do you see having the biggest impact this season? Any do you see any of them as upgrades from say Cameron Maybin or Ted Lilly (bottom of my roster)? Thanks
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
At this point, it's pretty much all about opportunity. The Trouts and Harpers of the world are already here, and now it becomes a waiting game for a lot of guys. With Tabata getting demoted, that time could be now for a guy like Starling Marte. Some other names to consider: Wil Myers, Ryan Lavarnway (if traded out of Boston), Danny Hultzen, Jake Odorizzi, Jedd Gyorko, Johnny Giavotella, Mike Olt, Travis Snider. It's a gamble dropping an established big leaguer for one of those guys, but in a shallower league where they're just bench players anyway, gambling on some upside isn't a bad idea. (Derek Carty)
2012-06-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What position do you see Jedd Gyorko play at the MLB level? I selfishly hope for 2B eligibility.
(sitdancer from DC)
He'll get a shot at second base because Chase Headley is at third. Will Gyorko stick there? Hard to say, although if he hits I could see it. His bottom half is ... let's say thick. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jedd Gyorko has been playing 2b this week. Can he be remotely playable there at the ML level?
(Jeff from Bay Area)
I don't think so. He can really swing a bat, but I don't see the necessary athletic traits to play 2B at the major league level. (Jason Parks)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)Of all the players in the Padres minor league system, who do you think ends up having the best major league career?
(Nigella from Esco)
I'll go with Jedd Gyorko. The guy can hit. (Geoff Young)
