Gordon is starting in Saturday's game against the Guardians. Gordon saw inconsistent playing time in early May, but he'll draw a third consecutive start in left field Saturday. Trevor Larnach (groin) remains on the 10-day injured list, so Gordon should serve as the Twins' primary left fielder after Alex Kirilloff was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.
Gordon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays. Gordon will sit for the third time in five games and appears to have faded into more of a utility role with the recent return of Gary Sanchez (abdomen) leaving one fewer spot in the lineup available for the Twins.
Gordon is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers. With southpaw Tarik Skubal on the hill for Detroit, the lefty-hitting Gordon will head to the bench after a stretch of five starts in six games. Gordon will likely move into more of a full-time reserve role as soon as the Twins get either Alex Kirilloff (wrist) or Gary Sanchez (abdomen) back in the lineup.
Gordon will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the White Sox. Gordon has been the main beneficiary of Gary Sanchez's ongoing absence due to abdominal tightness. With Sanchez sitting Sunday for the fourth game in a row, Gordon will pick up his fourth straight start, with three of them coming at different positions. He'll typically see most of his reps in the outfield if Sanchez misses more time, as Gordon's start at shortstop Sunday is a byproduct of Carlos Correa getting a routine day off.
Gordon is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Byron Buxton (knee) remains out for the third game in a row, but after starting in center field the previous two contests, the lefty-hitting Gordon will take a seat with a southpaw (Rich Hill) on the mound for Boston. Gordon should continue to see the bulk of the work in center field against right-handed pitching while Buxton is out, but at this stage, the Twins remain hopeful that Buxton will avoid a trip to the injured list.
