Welcome Back Jody Gerut

Welcome back into the Padres fold Jody Gerut.

You did a good job for this team when it stunk in 2008 and now you will provide veteran depth at the minor league level in case there is another injury at the ML level. With Gwynn likely out for the season with a broken hamate bone in his hand, both the defense and offense you are capable of providing will be important for the Padres down the stretch.

The season you platooned with Scott Hairston in CF was an outstanding year for you and hopefully returning to the Padres system can reinvigorate you as a player.

While I hope the Padres stay healthy and have no need for you on the active roster before September 1st, I would feel comfortable with you patrolling center field against RHP.
