Padres | Jedd Gyorko closing in on 2B job

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is on the verge of winning the second base job. He hasn't officially been named as the team's starter, but management appears satisfied he can adequately make the switch from third base.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko is a prospect who hit .311 with 30 homers and a .547 slugging percentage splitting time between Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A Tucson last season. He should be a nice power source for NL-only owners at 2B and the middle infield position, and mixed leaguers will want to take a chance on him in the middle to late rounds.
