Gordon, 20, is batting .285/.338/.406 with two home runs, 24 RBI and 10 steals through 63 games for High-A Fort Myers. A concussion interrupted Gordon's progress earlier this season, and he has been caught stealing nearly as many times as he has been successful in 2016. Nevertheless, he is only starting to scratch the surface of his potential, and could end up as a very similar player to his brother Dee.
Gordon (concussion) went 1-for-3 with a strikeout and two runs scored in his return to action with High-A Fort Myers on Wednesday. He was also caught stealing for the third time in seven attempts this season. Gordon was caught eight times in 33 attempts at Low-A last season (76 percent success rate). The 20-year-old still has a long way to go in his development, but he was off to a great start before hitting the 7-day DL earlier this month, slashing .309/.343/.447 in 23 games. His prospect stock will continue to trend upward if he keeps this up, especially if he's able to further tap into the power as the season progresses.
Gordon was placed on the minor league disabled list Wednesday with a concussion, Brice Zimmerman of the Fort Myers Miracle reports. Gordon will be shut down for at least a week after suffering a concussion Tuesday. His production slipped the last week, but he still owns a .309/.343/.447 slash line at the High-A level 23 games into his age-20 season.
Gordon is hitting .400 (14-for-35) with a home run in eight games for High-A Fort Myers. Gordon hit a somewhat disappointing .277/.336/.360 at Low-A last season, which was offset by his age at the level (he was just 19). The fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft is off to a promising start at High-A.
Twins infield prospect Nick Gordon is out for the season after suffering a broken finger. He is doubtful to play in the Florida Instructional League, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Gordon finishes his first pro season with a .294/.333/.366 line and 11 stolen bases in 235 at-bats with Rookie-level Elizabethton.
