2B - SEA
Mariners manager Scott Servais couldn't comment on why Dee Gordon was absent from Wednesday's workout.
We should get more information later today or tomorrow. The veteran speedster is currently pegged to serve a utility role for Seattle this year, playing primarily second base and centerfield.
Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 Tuesday against the Angels and was also caught stealing.
Gordon found himself on the injured list twice last season limiting him to 421 plate appearances and 22 stolen bases. Gordon is a one trick pony in fantasy and if he can’t approach 30 plus stolen bases he won’t be of much help. Gordon can be left for others to speculate on.
Dee Gordon got the start for the Mariners at shortstop on Friday. He took that and popped off for three hits while also scoring a run and nabbing a stolen base.
It is well known the type of speed and talent Gordon has. After seemingly being demoted to the bench/utility role Gordon has been fairly undraftable. With the question marks that lie in Seattle's infield there is still a chance Gordon takes over a spot to provide practically free stolen bases and runs.
Dee Gordon batted eighth and went 0-for-2 in the Mariners' 5-3 Cactus League win over the Reds on Wednesday.
Gordon saw his first action on Wednesday after sitting for the Mariners' first three contests of the spring and wasn't able to produce in his two at-bats. The speedster is coming off of a rough season that saw him swipe his fewest bags since 2013 and will have a tough time bouncing back in 2020 as the veteran is expected to slide into a utility/bench role to open the season.
Dee Gordon went 1-for-2 in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Athletics.
Gordon missed the last three contests due to back tightness, but joined the Mariners for the season finale Sunday. Gordon finished 2019 slashing .279/.304/.359 with three home runs, 34 RBI, 36 runs scored and 22 stolen bases in 421 plate appearances this season.
