Gyorko was optioned to the minors on June 10 after batting .210/.282/.311 over his first 131 plate appearances. He posted very good numbers at Triple-A and should see semi-regular playing time at second base in his return to San Diego. Spangenberg and Yangervis Solarte have been splitting starts there.

Gyorko signed a five-year, $35 million contract with the Friars in early-April 2014 after tallying 23 home runs and 63 RBI in 125 games as a rookie in 2013. He has just 12 homers and 52 RBI in 157 games since.
