  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Solo homer in win

    Gordon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Orioles.

    Gordon launched a solo shot in the seventh inning for the Twins' first score of the game. It turned out to be the first of four runs Minnesota would score late to come back and win the game. It was his second home run this week and his fifth of the year. Gordon may have earned more consistent playing time with a good performance after recording just one official at-bat in the team's previous three games. The outfielder is now slashing .263/.305/.407 for the season.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Heads to bench

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Gordon started seven consecutive games in the outfield and went 5-for-22 with two home runs and three RBI before sitting out the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader. He'll now find himself on the bench for the second game in a row, and he could find himself as the odd man out of the lineup for Minnesota with Jorge Polanco having returned from the injured list. The addition of Polanco could leave fewer starts available for Alex Kirilloff at first base, in which case Kirilloff could see more time in left field at Gordon's expense.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Not starting nightcap

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader at Cleveland.

    Gordon started the matinee and went 1-for-3 with walk, and he'll head to the bench for Game 2 to break a stretch of seven straight starts. Gilberto Celestino will man left field and bat ninth in the nightcap.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Blasts third homer

    Gordon went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's 11-1 win over the Guardians. He also reached base on a hit-by-pitch.

    Gordon's home run to deep right field built the Twins' lead to seven runs after six innings and effectively salted the game away. He'll be in the lineup for the seventh consecutive contest in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader in Cleveland, occupying left field while batting seventh. Expect Gordon to continue serving as the Twins' primary left fielder while Trevor Larnach is likely out for the next six weeks after undergoing core-muscle surgery.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Nabs fifth straight start

    Gordon will start in left field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    Gordon will remain in the lineup for the fifth straight game after going 3-for-12 with a solo home run across the Twins' previous four contests. While Trevor Larnach (core) is on the 10-day injured list, Gordon looks like he'll occupy at least a strong-side platoon role in the Minnesota outfield.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Accounts for only run in win

    Gordon went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday in a 1-0 victory versus Cleveland.

    Gordon smashed a 422-foot solo shot in the third inning that held up as the only run of the contest to give Minnesota the win. The long ball was just his second of the season and his first since May 29. Gordon doesn't have much power, but he's hit pretty well in June with a .289 average over 38 at-bats.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Starting Saturday

    Gordon (hamstring) will start Saturday against Arizona, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Gordon didn't appear in any of the last four games while recovering from hamstring soreness, but he's ready to go now and will give Byron Buxton the day off. Gordon has hit a mediocre .254/.296/.366 in 49 games this season.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Exits with tight hamstring

    Gordon left Saturday's game against the Rays due to right hamstring tightness, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Gordon went 1-for-3 with a walk prior to his exit. It's not yet clear if his injury will turn out to be serious enough to require a trip to the injured list.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Back to bench

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Gordon had started in nine of the last 11 games, but he's likely to see his playing time take a hit with Max Kepler (personal) coming off the restricted list to begin the week. Though he's seen most of his time in the outfield of late, the 26-year-old has experience at both middle-infield spots, but his opportunities there could soon become scarce as well with Carlos Correa (illness) on track to return from the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Swipes second bag

    Gordon went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base Thursday against the Tigers.

    Gordon has started five consecutive games thanks to the absences of Gilberto Celestino (illness), Carlos Correa (illness) and Royce Lewis (knee). He's been inconsistent with the opportunity, though he now has three multi-hit efforts in his last eight starts, also driving in five and scoring four runs in that span. Gordon has a .257/.288/.363 line with one home run and two stolen bases across 120 plate appearances for the season.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Gets fourth consecutive start

    Gordon will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Gordon doesn't have a direct path to an everyday role at any one spot, but he should be in store for a solid dose of playing time while the likes of Carlos Correa (illness) and Gilberto Celestino (illness) are on the COVID-19-related injured list and while Royce Lewis (knee) is on the 10-day IL. He'll be making his fourth consecutive start Wednesday, this time filling in for a resting Byron Buxton.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Back on bench

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    Gordon started the past two games in the Minnesota outfield, going 3-for-8 with a double, three RBI and a run. Though Max Kepler (quadriceps) remains out of the lineup Sunday, the Twins brought up top prospect Royce Lewis from Triple-A St. Paul. He'll start in center field in Sunday's series finale and looks poised to get regular work out of the outfield while Kepler is out, so Gordon should find himself in a reserve role on a more permanent basis.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Gordon isn't starting Saturday against the Royals, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Gordon recently drew seven straight starts, and he hit .280 with a double, a run, an RBI and a stolen base during that time. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game while Gilberto Celestino starts in left field and bats ninth.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Starting in left field

    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.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Moves back into utility role

    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.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: On bench Thursday

    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.
