Player Outlook
Nick Gordon looked set to take a more prominent role in the Twins lineup last season but struggled early in the season and then suffered a season-ending broken leg May 17. Gordon went from a light hitting utility player to adding power in 2022 by slugging .427 and hitting nine home runs with 28 doubles, which helped make him an above average hitter with a 111 wRC+. He entered spring training with a shot at winning the everyday DH role or becoming a regular in the lineup while alternating positions. He hit just .127 with a .343 OPS in April and subsequently was stuck on the bench. He then fouled a ball off his shin in mid-May and broke his right tibia. He was able to play in a rehab assignment late in September but wasn't added to the postseason roster. Traded to Miami in February, he'll enter spring training needing to fight for a utility role as his chance for an everyday job may have passed him by.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Sitting against lefty

    Gordon isn't in the Marlins' lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs. The Marlins will face left-hander Shota Imanaga in Game 2, so the lefty-hitting Gordon will step out of the lineup. Bryan De La Cruz will man left field while Gordon sits, moving Josh Bell into DH duties, Emmanuel Rivera over to first base and Otto Lopez to third.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Pops third homer

    Gordon went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. The 28-year-old took Dylan Lee deep in the sixth inning, giving Miami a 7-5 lead that would slip away late. Gordon's shown some surprising pop to begin the season in a part-time role, and while he's batting just .222 (6-for-27), four of his hits have gone for extra bases including three long balls. His career high is only nine homers, set over 138 games with the Twins in 2022.

    Gordon is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. With Atlanta left-hander Max Fried taking the mound Friday, Gordon will once again take a seat while Bryan De La Cruz shifts to left field.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Goes deep Sunday

    Gordon went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Gordon mirrored Jazz Chisholm with a three-run blast as part of a six-run first inning for the Marlins of Kyle Gibson. Gordon hit just two home runs in 93 plate appearances all of last year and has already left the yard twice in 16 plate appearances this season, showing some increased power early on. He now has four hits and six RBI on the year so far with three of his hits going for extra bases.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: On bench versus lefty

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels, Christina De Nicola of MLB.comreports.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Goes yard Sunday

    Gordon belted a pinch-hit solo home run off David Bednar in Sunday's extra-inning loss to Pittsburgh. Stepping to the plate for catcher Nick Fortes in the ninth inning and the Marlins down a run, Gordon got hold of a hanging splitter from the Pirates' closer and drove it over the fence in right field. The 28-year-old has appeared in three of Miami's first four games, starting two of them in left field, but he's only collected six total at-bats and seems stuck in a strict platoon role. Gordon's homer Sunday was his first hit of the season, and he's struck out three times.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Not starting against lefty

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Gordon has two starts against right-handed pitchers but will hit the bench Sunday with lefty Bailey Falter on the mound for Pittsburgh. Bryan De La Cruz will shift to left field from designated hitter, but it's effectively Vidal Brujan replacing Gordon in the lineup.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Not in Friday's lineup

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Puts together solid spring

    Gordon got the start in right field and went 1-for-2 in Tuesday's split-squad game against the Cardinals. The 28-year-old has looked good in his first spring with the Marlins, batting .306 (11-for-36) while going 5-for-5 on stolen base attempts. Gordon is expected to fill a utility role this season as part of a speedy, versatile Miami bench that will likely also include Jon Berti and Vidal Brujan. Gordon struggled at the plate for Minnesota last year with a .504 OPS in 93 plate appearances before seeing his season end in May due to a broken leg, but in a nearly full-time role in 2022, he slashed .272/.316/.427.

  • Marlins' Nick Gordon: Traded to Miami

    The Twins traded Gordon to the Marlins on Sunday in exchange for relief pitcher Steven Okert, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports. Gordon will head to Miami after spending the first three seasons of his major-league career with Minnesota. The 28-year-old appeared in 34 games with the Twins in 2023, producing a disappointing .176 batting average with eight extra-base hits over 91 at-bats. He'll look to carve out a more significant role with the Marlins this season.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Loses arbitration case

    Gordon will make $900,000 in 2024 after losing his arbitration case to the Twins on Saturday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. Gordon entered arbitration looking for $1.25 million. The outfielder had just 93 plate appearances last season due to suffering a right tibia fracture May 17. He nursed the injury for the rest of the season, which included a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Rehab assignment starts Thursday

    Gordon (tibia) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A St. Paul, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Gordon has been out since May 17, so he may require a longer rehab assignment than the typical position player. Once activated, Gordon will likely occupy a supporting role, serving as a backup infielder while getting some starts in center field.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Spotted on field Friday

    Gordon (tibia) was spotted shagging flyballs in center field during batting practice Friday prior to the Twins' game against the Rangers, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Gordon continues to incorporate more baseball activities into his rehab regimen but the Twins haven't yet mapped out a potential rehab assignment for him yet. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since mid-May with a right tibia fracture.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Set to begin running

    Gordon (lower leg) will begin "ground-based running" this week, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Gordon is still aiming to return this season, but he's still likely several weeks away from a rehab assignment. He's returning from a right tibia fracture suffered on May 17.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Nearing baseball activities

    Gordon (lower leg) is expected to begin baseball activities next week, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Gordon continues his rehab from a right tibia fracture and notably shed his cast earlier in the month. He'll take yet another step forward within the next week by gaining clearance for baseball activities. Gordon will need some time to ramp up his activities before ultimately going out on a rehab assignment, at which point he'll likely need a healthy diet of at-bats prior to being activated from the 60-day injured list. A more exact timetable for his return should come into focus once he gets the green light for live at-bats.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Out of boot, cast

    Gordon is no longer wearing a boot or a cast on his fractured right tibia, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Gordon is able to walk around normally now but has not been cleared to start running, nor is he sure about a potential timetable for a return. The utility player has been sidelined since mid-May.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Twins transferred Gordon (lower leg) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Royce Lewis (knee) -- who was activated from the 60-day IL on Monday -- and confirms that Gordon will miss at least two months due to the fractured right tibia he suffered May 17. The Twins haven't specified that Gordon will require surgery, so the 27-year-old looks like he'll still have a chance to return to action at some point during the second half of the season. Before getting hurt, Gordon had been seeing steady playing time in center field, but he'll likely see lighter usage while serving as more of a roving utility man whenever he's deemed ready to return from the IL.
