#Padres reinstate @JGyorko05 from paternity leave list and option INF/OF Tommy Medica to @epchihuahuas

— San Diego Padres (@Padres) April 30, 2014

Gyorko missed the first two games of the Padres’ three-game set against the Giants to be with his wife Karley while she gave birth to twin boys. The 25-year-old second baseman signed a five-year, $35 million extension with the San Diego front office earlier this month. He’s batting just .144/.218/.211 with one home run and nine RBI in 26 games this season after hitting .249/.301/.444 with 23 homers and 63 RBI in 125 games last year.
