RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After an impressive debut with the Padres in 2013, Gyorko signed a $35 million contract extension and has failed to meet expectations. The Cardinals acquired him from the Padres in December, perhaps in part because Gyorko hit .259/.299/.440 with 13 homers in the second half of last season. While Gyorko boasted a good eye at the plate as a prospect years ago, he's walked at a 6.7-percent clip over three MLB seasons while striking out at a 23.1-percent rate. As a member of the Cardinals, he is ticketed to be a utility option around the infield with Matt Carpenter, Ruben Tejada, and Kolten Wong occupying third base, shortstop, and second base, respectively. With Jhonny Peralta out for the first half with a thumb injury, Gyorko could get some starts at shortstop occasionally when he is not occupying the short side of a second base platoon. Gyorko's versatility makes him a nice flier at the end of drafts.

2015

Gyorko endured a sophomore slump in conjunction with a Padres offense that was historically atrocious, as evidenced by his inability to break through the Mendoza Line until Aug. 17. The late-breaking development was aided by a bout with plantar fasciitis, which spurred a stay on the disabled for the majority of June and July. However, silver linings can be found after his return to action on July 28, as consistency slowly but surely returned at the plate. Although he managed just one long ball in September, he reached base safely in 21 of 25 contests, when he slashed .267/.365/.378 with a 14:19 BB:K in 90 at-bats. With 10 homers on the 2014 ledger, he fell well short of the standard set as a rookie (23 in 486 at-bats) just one year previous, but the 26-year-old second baseman has followed a power-laden campaign with a more patient approach to end his second season, suggesting that his entire repertoire could soon rumble to the surface.

2014

There was seemingly no place for Gyorko as he rose through the ranks of the Padres' farm system, with Chase Headley entrenched at third base. However, multiple injuries to infielders opened up second base late in spring training, and Gyorko took full advantage, quickly assimilating himself at the position and forming a steady double-play combination with Everth Cabrera. Gyorko turned in a superb showing in the field, committing just four errors en route to a .992 fielding percentage, and he further exhibited his other tools, leading all rookies with 23 home runs. His plate discipline requires ample work following 33 walks versus 123 strikeouts, but as he grows accustomed to major league pitching, his batting line could resemble his time in the minors, when he developed at every stop. Considering position scarcity, he'll garner added recognition heading into draft season.

2013

Gyorko did some impressive work as a 23-year-old in Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A Tucson in 2012 as he hit .311/.373/.547 with 30 homers and 28 doubles over 557 plate appearances. In 2013, he appears primed for a shot at the majors as there is little left for him to prove in the minors. Defensively, he is unlikely to last at second base as scouts have nicked him for his footwork, but this shouldn't dissuade the Padres from attempting to see what he can do at the position in the short term. If he eventually ends up at third base, his stock takes a hit as that is a position where the average player hits for more power and there is Chase Headley blocking his path to everyday playing time. In an ideal world, he'll continue to hit and do so as an above average second baseman, which is what owners are banking on from the major league ready prospect.

2012

The former 2010 second-round pick is still very much a work in progress. A shortstop in college, Gyorko was moved to third base once he joined the Padres organization, but is still having some difficulties defensively with his range. With the bat, there's potential, but he had some trouble moving from High-A to Double-A last year, as evidenced by his drop in OPS from 1.067 to .786. Still, he hit 25 home runs over the full season and led the minors in hits and doubles, which is no small feat. He makes solid contact at the plate and has quick hands, so if he can improve his all-around game, the Padres may be able to use him sometime down the road.
