The Los Angeles Dodgers have traded for St. Louis Cardinals
infielder Jedd Gyorko ahead of the Trade Deadline.
Gyorko has played just 38 games this season dealing with both calf and back strains over the course of the season. However, he offers versatility to play anywhere in the infield boding well for the Dodgers. Los Angeles has struggled with their own injuries and currently has Chris Taylor, Kike Hernandez and David Freese on the 10-day IL.
The former San Diego Padre has been with the Cardinals since being traded there in 2015 in exchange for John Jay. He’s got a Club Option for 2020 next year for $13 million and how he plays down the stretch could determine if they hold on to him next season.
Gyorko will join a Dodgers team who has the best record in the National League this season.
