Dodgers Acquire Jedd Gyorko from St. Louis Cardinals

The Dodgers have acquired infielder Jedd Gyorko from the St. Louis Cardinals.

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.

This move is either for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Updates will be provided here as they come in.
