Dee Strange-Gordon: Option declined by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners declined Strange-Gordon's contract option Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Strange-Gordon played a part-time role for Seattle during the abbreviated 2020 season, and he'll hit free agency after his contract option was declined. The Mariners haven't expressed interest in bringing him back on a revised deal, and he should have to settle for another part-time role after slashing .200/.268/.213 with three RBI and three stolen bases over 33 games in 2020.

Mariners' Dee Strange-Gordon: Swipes bag in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strange-Gordon went 2-for-3 with two RBI, two runs scored, a stolen base and a walk in a 12-3 win over the Athletics in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader.

Strange-Gordon got aboard twice in the third inning. The first time, he singled, stole second and scored on a J.P. Crawford double to tie the game at 1-1. Strange-Gordon added a two-run single in his second at-bat of the inning. In the fifth, he walked and scored on a Crawford single. The 32-year-old Strange-Gordon has posted three steals, three RBI and 12 runs scored in 33 games this season in a part-time role.

Mariners' Dee Strange-Gordon: Productive in recent opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strange-Gordon, who went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in a win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, is hitting .357 (5-for-14) over his last seven games.

The playing time is pretty sporadic for the veteran these days, but Strange-Gordon has at least offered serviceable production when in the lineup during recent contests. Even with Shed Long's (lower leg) placement on the injured list, Strange-Gordon is still fighting a relatively uphill battle for opportunities at second base, considering the presence of trade acquisition Ty France and Dylan Moore. However, Sunday marked the 32-year-old's third start over the past week, with manager Scott Servais deploying France at designated hitter and shifting the highly versatile Moore to the outfield.

Mariners' Dee Strange-Gordon: Updates last name
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon will use his full legal surname, Strange-Gordon, going forward, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The 10-year veteran elected to go by Strange-Gordon to honor his mother, DeVona Strange, who was killed when he was six years old. Strange-Gordon has been his surname for his whole life, though he'd previously chosen to go by the simplified "Gordon" after an announcer mispronounced his full name in rookie ball.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Picking it up at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who went 2-for-3 and was caught stealing in his one attempt in an extra-innings win over the Angels on Sunday, is hitting .375 (6-for-16) over his last six games.

As can be expected with Gordon, there are no extra-base hits in that sample, but the fact he's been on base at a much better clip than any other time during the season is certainly reason for optimism. The veteran has raised his average 60 points with that surge, yet his .190/.242/.207 season line (62 plate appearances) still has monumental room for improvement.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Rangers.

Even with right-hander Jordan Lyles on the mound for Texas on Saturday, Gordon will take a seat. Sam Haggerty will take over in left field, batting second.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is not starting Thursday against the Dodgers, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Gordon is sitting for Thursday's series finale with left-hander Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber for the Dodgers. Sam Haggerty is starting in left field and hitting leadoff in his place.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Gets playing time despite struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon will start at second base and bat eighth Sunday against the Rockies, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

While Gordon is filling in for a resting Shed Long in the series finale and starting for the third time in four games overall, the veteran's best path to regular playing time likely comes in the corner outfield, where the Mariners are still waiting for someone to emerge as a viable complement to Kyle Lewis and Dylan Moore. Gordon has mustered a lowly .392 OPS through 29 plate appearances, but that hasn't disqualified him from the mix because his main competitors, Tim Lopes and Mallex Smith, have been largely underwhelming. Lopes and Smith carry OPS marks of .653 and .368, respectively, into Sunday's contest.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Productive in early going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a caught stealing and a run in a win over the Angels on Wednesday, has opened the season with a three-game hitting streak.

Gordon drew his third start of the campaign Wednesday and managed his first extra-base hit of 2020. The veteran had ceded the everyday job at second base to Shed Long coming into the season, but Gordon started at the keystone Wednesday for the first time after manning left field in his two prior games. Gordon's positional versatility could continue affording him fairly consistent playing time, and the fact he's started off steady with the bat naturally helps his case as well.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Gets second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon will start in left field and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Though the Mariners have faced right-handed starting pitchers in their four games with Houston to open the season, the lefty-hitting Gordon will be making only his second start after going 1-for-4 in Saturday's 7-2 loss. The lack of early full-time usage against righties signals that manager Scott Servais views Gordon as more of a bench piece these days than the lineup mainstay he had been for much of his previous two seasons in Seattle.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Back in action Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (undisclosed) is batting second and starting in left field for Saturday's intrasquad contest, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The 32-year-old was scratched from Wednesday's intrasquad game for unspecified reasons, but his return to the field Saturday answers any questions on his availability. Gordon is expected to operate in a super-utility role for the Mariners this season.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Manager mum on Wednesday's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday he couldn't comment on why Gordon (undisclosed) was withheld from the team's intrasquad game a day earlier, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Seattle penciled Gordon in as their leadoff man for Wednesday's contest before he was a surprise scratch shortly before the game. His unexplained absence and Servais' unwilling to offer any specifics on the matter will likely fuel speculation that Gordon tested positive for COVID-19, which would put his availability for the July 24 season opener in Houston in jeopardy. The Mariners are planning on deploying Gordon as a super-utility man in 2020.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Scratched from intrasquad lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was scratched from Wednesday's intrasquad lineup for an undisclosed reason, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Gordon was initially scheduled to play left field and lead off in Wednesday's intrasquad game, but he'll be held out instead. It's unclear what is preventing the 28-year-old from taking the field, and whether he'll miss additional time remains to be seen. Gordon is expected to serve as depth for the Mariners this season, but his defensive versatility could give him a fair amount of playing time if he's healthy.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Attends Saturday's workout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who wasn't present for Friday's first summer camp workout, participated in Saturday's session and took live batting practice, Greg Johns of MLB.com

Gordon was part of the morning session and stepped into the box against Justin Dunn, whom he promptly lined a single against in his first at-bat. The veteran infielder is projected to serve in a reserve capacity behind Shed Long at second base during the shortened 2020 season, but his ability to also fill in at shortstop and even center field could potentially lead to a serviceable amount of playing time.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Set for backup duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is slated to serve as a backup at both second base and shortstop in the coming season, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The veteran is set to serve as the elder statesman behind the promising Shed Long and J.P. Crawford at second base and shortstop, respectively. Gordon also logged 53 games in center field back in 2018, so his versatility and solid bat seemingly gives him plenty of job security going into the regular season. Gordon slashed .275/.304/.359 across 117 games in 2019, and he went 6-for-18 with two doubles, one RBI, one walk, two stolen bases and three runs across eight Cactus League games before the pause in play.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Cactus League debut imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon, who arrived in camp late due to the birth of his daughter, is expected to make his Cactus League debut either Wednesday or Thursday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The veteran infielder has been busy playing catch-up after not reporting to camp until last Friday. Gordon isn't projected to open the season as the starter at second base, with Shed Long slated for the top job at the keystone. However, the 31-year-old is still expected to serve as a valuable veteran presence and a fill-in option in at both second and center field.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Expected back Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (personal) is expected to report to the Mariners' camp Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Gordon's arrival to the Mariners' spring facility in Arizona has been delayed while he awaited the birth of his daughter, Demi. After taking the last few days off to spend time with his wife and the newborn, Gordon looks like he'll be ready to return to work over the weekend. The 31-year-old is expected to fill a super-utility role for Seattle in 2020 when the team is at full strength, though Mitch Haniger's (back/core muscle) expected absence for most of the first half of the season could open up regular reps for Gordon in the outfield.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Absent to begin camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon won't join the Mariners on Tuesday for the team's first full-squad workout while he awaits the birth of his first child, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Expect Gordon to remain at home for most of the week to spend time with his expanding family. The 31-year-old shouldn't be too far behind his teammates once he eventually reports to camp, but his exact role for the upcoming season likely won't be fleshed out until closer to Opening Day. With Seattle eyeing Shed Long and J.P. Crawford for everyday jobs in the middle infield and a host of youngsters competing for regular reps in the outfield, Gordon could be in store for more of a utility gig in 2020.

Mariners' Dee Gordon: Utility role on tap?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is expected to play all over the diamond in 2020, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

With Shed Long expected to take over as Seattle's primary second baseman, it sounds like Gordon will fill more of a utility role during the 2020 campaign. Gordon spent most of his time at the keystone in 2019 but also has big-league experience at shortstop and center field. The 31-year-old, who hit .275/.304/.359 with three home runs and 22 stolen bases last season, could see time in the outfield to open the upcoming campaign with Mitch Haniger unlikely to be ready for Opening Day after undergoing core surgery.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (back) is starting at second base and bat ninth Sunday versus the Athletics.

Gordon missed the last three contests due to the back tightness but will rejoin the starting nine for the season finale.
