BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 Now that he's at third base, Gyorko is a defensive upgrade as well as a power threat in the lineup. The backstory here is that he was bitten by a radioactive Scott Rolen jersey and the mild-mannered cleanup hitter for a small Midwestern baseball team moonlights as an underrated horsehide smasher and hot-corner sentry. His personal-best on-base percentage can justify keeping him in the fat of the lineup, and as he's hitting the prime of his career with two years remaining on his contract, Gyorko has finally found a comfortable position.
2017 Last season Gyorko finally posted the sort of numbers the Padres envisioned when they bought out his arbitration years and signed him to an extension, just not in San Diego. A grip-it-and-rip-it student of the low-contact, high-voltage school, Gyorko launched more than a quarter of his fly balls into the bleachers, a rate that placed him fourth in the National League and was nearly double his career mark. It would be foolish to expect him to duplicate that feat, but 20-plus bombs from a guy who can provide a solid glove at the corners or the keystone and serve as a donut tire at shortstop is something most any team will take.
2016 Gyorko's bat again arrived late to the party, though this time there was no plantar fasciitis to blame. After a refresher at Triple-A he picked up his game and finished with decent numbers. In their perpetual quest for a competent shortstop, the Padres tried him there down the stretch, and he didn't embarrass himself. Although his range isn't great, he is more athletic than his body type suggests, with his sure hands and accurate arm being assets on either side of the bag. Gyorko's plate discipline shows no signs of improving, but he generates good power for a middle infielder, which makes him useful down in the order—much as Khalil Greene was a decade ago—despite his .293 career OBP. He followed the Greene template all the way down to getting traded to St. Louis.
2015 How bad was the Padres' offense last year? Gyorko led the team in RBIs with two fewer than Hack Wilson had in August 1930 or Joe DiMaggio had in August 1939 (but one more than Pete Ward and Tommy Davis had to lead the '68 White Sox, yay!). His .333 slugging percentage was the lowest by any team's RBI leader since 1973, when Aurelio Rodriguez and his .330 mark paced the Tigers. Philosophical ruminations on the merits of the RBI aside, damn. Gyorko's season literally got off on the wrong foot, as plantar fasciitis helped sink his numbers and then put him on the disabled list for almost all of June and July. After posting a barely believable .482 OPS before the DL stint, he went .745 the rest of the way, identical to his rookie campaign (though different shape: more OBP in 2014, less SLG). With Gyorko under contract for five more years, the Padres hope his post-injury performance provides a better gauge of what the future holds. The drop in power from Mike Cameron levels as a rookie to Mark Ellis levels as a sophomore is a concern. On the plus side, he is the franchise's all-time leader in home runs among second basemen, and we're not even kidding. (The prior record-holder was Mark Loretta. Still not kidding.) With two good feet to stand on, Gyorko—owner of a .529 SLG in 1,500 minor-league plate appearances—should find an equilibrium somewhere between his first two seasons, likely at the higher end. That would be nice because his bat is where any value lies.
2014 Gyorko led the Padres and all rookies in homers despite hitting none in April and missing 37 games, mostly due to a right groin strain incurred in June. Among rookie second basemen in baseball history, only Joe Gordon (1938) and Dan Uggla (2006) hit more home runs. Although defensive metrics don't love the garden gnome-shaped former third baseman, his soft hands and improving footwork should keep him at second for now. He showed passable plate discipline in the minors, but his hacktastic approach in San Diego produced a vintage Khalil Greene season. In his first 53 games back from injury, Gyorko fanned 60 times against four walks. Recognizing the need to adjust, he walked nine times in his final 12 games, restoring hope for the future.
2013 Taken in the second round of the 2010 draft out of West Virginia, Gyorko is a pure hitter who combines an advanced understanding of the strike zone with line-drive power to all fields. He will knock a few home runs, though probably not as many as he did last year in the hitter-friendly PCL. With Chase Headley blocking his path to third base in San Diego, the Padres had Gyorko play some second base in 2012 with an eye toward getting his bat into the lineup sooner rather than later. He has a thick body and won't be a great defender at any position, but if he holds his own at the keystone corner and maintains his offensive skills, he could be an impact player starting now.
2012 Selected in the second round of the 2010 draft, Gyorko has done nothing but hit as a professional. He posted ridiculous numbers at Lake Elsinore (California League, but his OPS topped 1000 at home, which is a neutral park), where he split time between third base and designated hitter not because of any defensive deficiencies but to accommodate fellow prospect Edinson Rincon. Gyorko's performance at San Antonio was more subdued but still impressive. He is a strong kid with thick legs and a quick bat that generates line drives from the right side a la Jeff Cirillo. Gyorko added power to his game in 2011, although 25 homers might be pushing the limits of his ability. The Padres have a logjam at the hot corner and won't need him this soon, but Gyorko could be ready by the second half of 2012.
2011 If there is one thing that everyone knows about the Padres' 2010 second-round draft selection, it's his ability to hit. Gyorko accumulated twice as many extra-base hits as strikeouts as a junior in 2010, and flashed some pop with wood bats in the Cape Cod League in 2009. The Padres shifted him to third base, where he has the arm to stick but no other strong defensive skills; he played shortstop in college only because the rules stipulated that someone had to and he happened to be West Virginia's most distinguished athlete. Gyorko raked at Low-A before slowing down some in A-ball, but his approachfeaturing walks in 10 percent of his plate appearances and a reduced post-promotion strikeout rateaugured well for his first full professional season.

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)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)
2014-08-08 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)
2014-03-24 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)
Hi Jim.

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. (Ben Lindbergh)
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)
