Fantasy baseball News & Notes: Gyorko disappointing his owners

Jedd Gyorko has just three hits since April 14, which is certainly not making fantasy owners happy.

Gyorko is the type of player who will randomly go on a power surge where he looks like he's an elite hitter, and then follow it up with a week like last week where he doesn't do anything at all. That may not be the strongest praise to heap on a player; after all, owners want players who'll be beasts for the entire season, not one or two week stretches. But that's the most Gyorko can offer right now. He could be an okay contributor down the line, but for now, if there's anyone more consistent to plug in and play at second base, it wouldn't be a bad idea to explore your options.

Ryan Howard has seven hits and two home runs in his last three games.
