Cardinals acquire Jedd Gyorko from Padres | MLB.com

Not seeing an ideal fit on the free-agent market, the Cardinals addressed their need for a utility infielder by acquiring Jedd Gyorko from the Padres on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Jon Jay. A member of the Cardinals’ organization for almost a decade, Jay did not have an obvious fit on the 2016 club following an injury-plagued season.

As part of the deal, the Cardinals are also receiving about $7.5 million from the Padres, according to a source, to help offset the $32 million Gyorko is owed over the next four seasons. He signed a six-year extension with the Padres in April 2014, just a year after his Major League debut.
