Gordon is not in the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Gordon will retreat to the bench to avoid a lefty-on-lefty matchup with New York starter CC Sabathia. Robinson Cano will slide over to second base to replace him, allowing Ryon Healy to make a start at first base.
Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double in a win over the Orioles in Wednesday. Gordon had opened September with an 0-for-10 tally across his first three games, a modest slump he snapped out of Wednesday with his third multi-hit effort over the last six contests. The veteran's on-base percentage (.293) leaves plenty to be desired and is largely responsible for his banishment to the bottom of the order, but his 24 extra-base hits (17 doubles, five triples, two home runs) and 30 stolen bases certainly afford him a degree of fantasy utility.
Gordon is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics. Gordon heads to the bench for the second time in the last four games despite having a modest seven-game hitting streak in which he is 9-for-27. Robinson Cano grabs the start at second base with Ryon Healy at first base Saturday.
