SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres think so much of second baseman Jedd Gyorko that they gave him a hefty raise and he’s only 13 games into his second full big league season.

Gyorko’s agreement is a six-year deal that adds $35 million over five seasons through 2019.

It replaces a one-year deal agreed to last month and includes a team option for 2020. San Diego essentially buys out one year of free agency and possibly two.

Gyorko proved himself with a big rookie season, hitting .249 with 23 home runs and 63 RBIs.
