Jun 10 - 5:47 PM

Jedd Gyorko went 0-for-4 on Monday to drop his OPS below .900 for the first time since mid-April.

Gyorko is 5-for-27 in his last eight games, and he's hit for little power the last three weeks, driving in just four runs in 16 games. The Cardinals probably won't be going back to Jhonny Peralta at third base anytime soon, but there was never really any chance that Gyorko was going to remain one of the league's best hitters all year long.
Jun 5 - 11:50 PM

Jedd Gyorko (paternity) is back in the Cardinals' lineup for Sunday night's game against the Cubs.

Gyorko missed the first two games of the series to be with his wife for the birth of his third child. He's hitting in his customary cleanup spot against Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs.
Jun 4 - 5:08 PM

Cardinals activated 3B Jedd Gyorko from the paternity leave list.

Gyorko missed the first two games of the series against the Cubs following the birth of his third child. He'll be back at third base and in the cleanup spot as the Cards try to avoid the sweep.
Jun 4 - 9:12 AM

Cardinals placed INF Jedd Gyorko on the paternity leave list.

Gyorko will miss Friday's and Saturday's game before rejoining the club for their Sunday night game in Chicago. Jhonny Peralta is starting at third base Friday.
Jun 2 - 11:27 AM

Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-4 with a double Thursday in his final game before going on paternity leave.

Gyorko is expected to miss games Friday and Saturday. Jhonny Peralta could start at third base, though Greg Garcia is probably a better option.
Jun 1 - 5:09 PM

Jedd Gyorko (family) will be placed on the paternity leave list for Friday and Saturday's games against the Cubs.

Gyorko was away from the team on Tuesday for the birth of his first daughter. He will play against the Dodgers on Wednesday and Thursday, as those games are in St. Louis. Then, off to the paternity leave list for two games before he returns on Sunday.
May 31 - 4:33 PM

Jedd Gyorko (family) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers and is hitting fourth.

Gyorko was away from the team on Tuesday to celebrate the birth of his baby daughter. Back at it, now, presumably rather tired but with a light heart. The team did not need to place him on the paternity leave list, as his wife was in St. Louis when she gave birth.
May 31 - 4:20 PM

Jedd Gyorko (family) has been scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday night against the visiting Dodgers.

Gyorko was excused just before pregame workouts to welcome the birth of his first daughter. His wife is in St. Louis, so the Cardinals might hold off on placing him on the paternity leave list. Jhonny Peralta is starting at third base and batting sixth Tuesday versus Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda.
May 30 - 4:39 PM

Jedd Gyorko has been excused from the Cardinals to welcome the birth of his first daughter.

He's penciled in as the Cardinals' starter at third base on Tuesday night against the Dodgers, but that will obviously change. Stephen Piscotty is also away from the club due to a personal matter. Look for a roster move soon.
May 30 - 4:16 PM

Jedd Gyorko went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Gyorko slugged a solo homer off German Marquez to lead off the sixth inning. He is now up to eight home runs on the season and has driven in 21 runs in 41 games played. Gyorko owns a .322/.377/.570 batting line in that space and has far outplayed his career .244/.302/.429 triple-slash to this point.
May 28 - 6:15 PM

Jedd Gyorko went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Gyorko notched a two-run double against Kenta Maeda in the first inning, his ninth two-bagger of the season. The hit bumped his RBI total to an even 20. For the season as a whole, the 28-year-old third baseman is slashing .336/.384/.579.
May 26 - 1:20 AM

Jedd Gyorko finished 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Gyorko's surprising 30-homer season last year came with just a .243 average. This year, though, he's at .331 over 136 at-bats. There's no way he keeps that up, but he probably will make another run at 30 homers now that he's a regular.
May 25 - 1:09 AM

Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-5 with a pair of singles and two strikeouts in Saturday's game against the Giants.

Gyorko has been red hot in the month of May, hitting safely in six straight and 13 of his past 14 outings. After hitting .333 in the month of April he is doing even better in May. The former standout at West Virginia University is hitting .328 with three homers and 10 RBI through 16 games in May.
