The San Diego Padres have signed second baseman Jedd Gyorko to a six-year extension, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the deal is worth $35 million.

The deal keeps Gyorko, who has played only 137 games in MLB, on the team for one year of his free agency eligibility and will also cover one pre-arbitration year, in addition to three arbitration-eligible seasons.

The second baseman hit 23 home runs and 26 doubles for the Padres as a rookie in 2013, but batted just .249 with 123 strikeouts.
