Gordon went 3-for-5 with an RBI infield single and two stolen bases in a 10-8 win over the Athletics on Saturday.
Gordon has opened his debut Mariners campaign with a 12-game hit streak, with Saturday's effort qualifying as his fourth multi-hit effort. The 29-year-old speedster's ability to consistently set the table has been a boon for the run-producing prospects of the likes of Jean Segura and Kyle Seager hitting behind him, as the two have now combined for 18 RBI.
Gordon went 3-for-5 with a pair of stolen bases and a run in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Giants.
It was the quintessential line for a quintessential leadoff hitter, and it extended Gordon's season-opening hitting streak to a modest four games. The 29-year-old dynamo already has a pair of multi-hit outings as well during that stretch, while his two swipes broke the ice in that category for him in 2018. Fantasy owners and the Mariners alike undoubtedly hope that Tuesday's production is a microcosm of what Gordon frequently brings to the table this season; given his body of work dating back to spring training, that's an increasingly conceivable notion.
Gordon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Indians.
He'd already flashed a bit of unexpected power during spring training, launching three home runs over 59 plate appearances. Naturally, there wasn't much weight given to the mini-surge, considering it came during exhibition play. However, Sunday's 370-foot shot to right not only snapped a 2-2 deadlock, it also represented a third of his combined long-ball total over the last two seasons. It was a strong start to the season overall for Gordon during the opening series, as he went 4-for-12 with a walk and pair of runs in addition to Sunday's blast.
Gordon blasted two home runs over three at-bats in Friday's 10-7 Cactus League loss to the Giants.
Gordon first home run went deep off starter Jeff Samardzija in the third and he followed it up with a solo shot off Sam Dyson in the fifth. The offseason acquisition is displaying unprecedented power this spring, considering he totaled just two round trippers over 653 at-bats last season in Miami. While it's unlikely the increased pop carries over into the regular season, Gordon's rapid acclimation to his new center field spot and his overall play (.391 average over nine games) offer plenty of reason for optimism.
Gordon, who went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 7-3 Cactus League loss to the Athletics, nevertheless made a positive impact when he cut down Mark Canha trying to advance to third base,Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
The converted infielder has already utilized his elite speed to make several nice running catches in the gaps this spring, but Wednesday marked his first truly challenging throw with a man trying to advance. The second-inning play came after Mariners starter Marco Gonzales had overthrown a pickoff attempt that Gordon had alertly backed up. He then put all of his 170 pounds into a picture-perfect laser to Gordon Beckham at third that nailed Canha and left the former Marlin sprawled at his center field spot momentarily. The throw, along with another in the sixth that had plenty of juice but not enough accuracy to get a tagging Franklin Barreto at third, were sensational but not surprising to manager Scott Servais, who's been raving about his offseason acquisition's baseball IQ since camp opened. "Dee made a great throw, and that was awesome to see," Servais said. "He's got plenty [of arm strength] and very accurate. He almost got the other guy, too, if it had been down just a hair. He's an exciting player. Obviously the speed, but the arm, the bat, it's the whole package."
