Jedd Gyorko tweaked his left hamstring Thursday in LA. Played through it Friday but team decided to give it a rest today. He's day-to-day.With Gyorko out of the lineup, expect Alexi Amarista or Yangervis Solarte to get the start in his place. Solarte is batting .259 with nine home runs and 44 RBI, whilc Amarista is batting .237 with three home runs and 23 RBI.
