The 25-year-old second baseman has been struggling so far in 2014. He has a .144/.218/.211 line with just one homer and nine RBI so far. This weekend against the Nationals he went 3-for-16.
Medica, in just 28 at-bats this year, is hitting .143 with a homer and two runs driven in. He played in just two games for Triple-A EL Paso since being optioned, but hit a homer and drove in three in those two games.
Congrats to Gyorko and his wife Karley on the birth of their twin sons.
