Jedd Gyorko was moved to the 60-day IL yesterday, but is eligible to return to action next week. He has a slash line of .196/.274/.304 through just 38 games this season. The 30-year-old is going to provide depth to an injured Dodgers infield. The Dodgers currently have David Freese, Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor on the injury list. However, Gyorko will be able to help defensively. The team also would like him to get his bat going.
The Cardinals will receive left-hander Tony Cingrani along with minor-league pitcher Jeffry Abreu.
Cingrani is expected to miss the remainder of the season after having shoulder surgery, so the Cardinals will have to wait until next season to use the southpaw.
Jeffry Abreu is just 19-years-old in rookie ball. In his second season, he has a 4.66 ERA through his six appearances that includes two starts. The Cardinals certainly hope he can pan out to reach the bigs and succeed there as well.
