You Could Be Gyrating Over Gyorko at the Trade Deadline

With the start of the trading whirl wind that will get underway any minute now you should know of a sure fire call-up once the dominos start to fall. As you remember from the article on Headley last week, I expect him to be one of the first tradesto be made. In his place  the Padres will call up one of the best hitters in the Minors. Their new 3B will be Jedd Gyorko. The Padres have moved Gyorko from 2B to 3B over the past couple of weeks.

All Gyorko is doing is hitting over .320 with 21 HR and 73 RBI between Double and Triple A this season. In Triple A alone he is hitting an unbelievable .351 over a 55 game span with an OPS of 1.014. Since being drafted in the 2nd round in 2010, Gyorko has just smashed the ball and has never hit below .300 at any level.  For Fantasy purposes; what hurts his value will be playing in Petco. Besides that he is true professional hitter.  It is interesting that Yahoo has him as a 3B but ESPN has him listed as 2B eligible.  He is definitely worth a stash on your bench if you have the room.
