Dodgers willing to move Gordon
The Dodgers are willing to trade All-Star infielder Dee Gordon, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman.
The 26-year-old Gordon is coming off a breakout season in which he led the National League in triples (12) and stolen bases (64) while hitting .289 to earn his first All-Star appearance.
His on-base percentage — .326 last season and .314 for his career — could be an issue for the new Dodgers’ regime, however. Sherman notes Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and Co. prefer high on-base guys.
There’s bound to be interest in Gordon, given lack of shortstops in today’s game. Although Gordon played strictly at second last year, he came up as a shortstop and played there from 2011-13.
The Dodgers’ other second base options should they move Gordon include Alex Guerrero and Justin Turner.
