Jedd Gyorko
31-Year-Old Third Baseman3B
Los Angeles Dodgers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gyorko's improved on-base skills carried over from 2017, but his power dipped precipitously. He swatted just 11 homers, his lowest total since 2014. The drop was from a decline in HR/FB as Gyorko's flyball rate was normal, a tick below 40%. His average exit velocity and launch angle nearly matched his marks from 2017, and his hard-hit rate jumped from 30.8% to 37.1%, suggesting he was snake bit when hitting the ball in the air. Gyorko's 30 homers in 2016 are destined to be his career high, particularly now that his role on the Cardinals has taken a hit. Gyorko missed time early with a hamstring issue then late with a sore groin. He's played between 125 and 128 games the last four years. Gyorko enters the season eligible only at third base but should eventually pick up eligibility at second base. The addition of Paul Goldschmidt means Gyorko enters the year on the short side of a platoon at the keystone, so he is reserve fodder at best in mixers. Read Past Outlooks
