Gyorko tests leg with running; no timetable for return

MIAMI -- Jedd Gyorko did some running during batting practice on Monday, but Padres manager Bud Black said there is still no timetable for the rookie's return.

"We're hoping, by the end of the week at least, he's back to moving around, running and getting closer to going back out to play a few more games," Black said.

"That's our anticipation. Nothing's imminent in the couple of days for him as far as any increased baseball activities."

Gyorko has been on the disabled list since June 10 with a strained right groin. He experienced tightness in his leg while running the bases during a rehab game with Double-A San Antonio on June 26.

The second baseman was looking forward to testing his leg before Monday's workout.

"It's getting better," Gyorko said. "Each day it's getting a little bit better."
