Gordon was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right wrist contusion. Gordon was out of the lineup for almost a week earlier this month after getting hit by a pitch on his right wrist, and apparently the injury is still an issue. It is unclear if Gordon will go for further tests on the wrist or if the team is just going to let him rest for 10 days. He will be eligible to return May 31. Shed Long was promoted from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Gordon went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Twins. Gordon's 12th steal of the year came in the third inning after he got aboard with a single. He later scored in the fifth inning on an Edwin Encarnacion single. Gordon is hitting .301 with 16 runs scored and 19 RBI over 40 games this season.
Gordon went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Twins, his first game back in the lineup after not starting the last five contests due to a wrist injury. Gordon had made appearances as a pinch runner and defensive replacement over the last pair of games, but he hadn't started since May 9, when he got hit on the wrist by the Yankees' J.A. Happ. The veteran infielder was enjoying a solid start to May prior to the injury, as he'd opened the month going 9-for-30 with a home run and four multi-hit tallies.
Gordon (wrist) is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins. He will slot back in at second base and atop the order against right-hander Michael Pineda after missing close to a week with a wrist injury. This marks Gordon's seventh start in the leadoff spot in his last eight starts after he was stuck at the bottom of the lineup to begin the year. He's getting on base at a .336 clip, up from .288 a year ago, and is 11-for-13 in stolen-base attempts.
Gordon (wrist) is out of Tuesday's lineup against Oakland, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Gordon is set to miss his fifth straight contest since getting drilled by a pitch on his right wrist, though he appears to be making progress towards a return, as he managed to participate in fielding work with the team Monday. He'll benefit from a scheduled off day Wednesday before Seattle's next matchup Thursday against Minnesota.
