Padres Sign 2nd Round Pick INF Jedd Gyorko


The Padres have agreed to terms with 2010 2nd-round draft pick Jedd Gyorko, infielder from West Virginia.

The deal is pending a physical.

Gyorko, a college junior, is coming off a .381/.472/.750 season at West Virginia. He’ll likely step in at second base with short-season Eugene and probably see Low-A Fort Wayne at some point.

It’s great to see a high draft pick signed in time to get some significant pro instruction in during the 2010 season.
