Gyorko holds just a 56 wRC+ this season, but posted a 110 wRC+ in 2018.
He most likely will replace Kristopher Negron on the major league roster. This obviously is not a needle moving type of transaction and is one that would typically take place at the August deadline. If anything, Gyorko provides insurance.
Gyorko is currently on the 60-day IL with a back injury and is eligible to come off next week, per JP Hoornstra.
Gyorko opened on the year on IL with a calf strain. He’s currently getting over a low back strain.

This move is either for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Updates will be provided here as they come in.
