San Diego Padres Rookie Jedd Gyorko Has Groin Injury?

Most players seem concerned about feeling the wrath of the turf monster, but they may want to keep their eyes out for the notorious groin monster as yet another player has potentially gone down with the lingering injury – at least – that’s the guess of the San Diego Padres medical staff.

Friar rookie Jedd Gyorko, who’s been absolutely mashing the ball lately, left today’s game against the Colorado Rockies early and according to Padres beat writer Corey Brock, it could be a groin injury which has skipper Bud Black concerned.

Per Brock:

#Padres Gyorko left the game with an injury of sorts to his right groin. Black said he’s a little concerned. Gyorko hopes it’s a cramp.

Gyorko is currently undergoing testing and most likely the injury, be it a cramp like Gyorko hopes or a groin strain as potentially expected, wont be known until the morning when the Padres return to San Diego to face the Atlanta Braves.

The rookie second baseman is currently hitting .286 with 8 home runs and 25 RBI.
