Jedd Gyorko (knee) was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Gyorko had been slated to start at third base and bat sixth but now Greg Garcia will occupy the hot corner for St. Louis. Apparently he's dealing with a case of right knee irritation. Gyorko got off to a booming start this year but has struggled to a dismal .176 average since the All-Star break. Consider him day-to-day.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that Jedd Gyorko didn't start Thursday for the second time in three games due to fatigue.

Gyorko has batted only .159 with a .500 OPS since the All-Star break. He's on pace this season to play more than he ever has at the big league level, so it's not a surprise that he's getting a little worn down. Gyorko will be back in the lineup Friday. "You could just tell he’s beat down a little bit (by) how they’re going about his work," Matheny said. "He’s a guy who wants to grind just like every other guy we have on this team. He’s also appreciative of the fact that we see he’s a little beat down and if we can find a way to buy him a little time to get right, I think, we’re going to end up seeing benefits down the road."
