Twins' Nick Gordon: Out with stomach issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is opening the season on the injured list at Triple-A Rochester due to acute gastritis, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

It's unclear how much time Gordon is expected to miss. The shortstop spent 99 games with Rochester last season but needs to take a big step forward this season if he's to push for a big-league job, as he hit just .212/.262/.283.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gordon still has to prove himself at the Triple-A level, where he struggled for the first time in his professional career last season. After producing above-average batting lines at each step of the ladder, he hit just .212/.262/.283 in 99 games for Rochester last season.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of Baseball Prospectus reports.

This is largely a procedural move to protect the infielder from being taken by another team in the Rule 5 draft. Gordon was the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft, and he emerged as one of the Twins' top prospects in recent years. However, he struggled mightily in his first taste of Triple-A last season, slashing a mere .212/.262/.283 with two homers, 40 runs scored and 13 stolen bases across 490 plate appearances. Despite this, he's just 23 years old and knocking on the door of the major leagues. He doesn't pose as a future superstar, but his decent speed, solid contact ability and proximity to the majors give him some value for the 2019 season.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Quiet start at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is hitting .241/.262/.355 with two homers and two steals over 52 games since being promoted to Triple-A Rochester in May.

While the Twins are likely to deal away an infielder or two prior to the trade deadline at the end of July, Gordon does not appear to be big-league ready at this point, which gives him a very good chance of staying at Rochester for the duration of the 2018 season. While he's not striking out a ton (18.5% K%), Gordon is walking at the lowest rate of his professional career in his first crack at the International League (2.8% BB%).

Twins' Nick Gordon: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was promoted to Triple-A Rochester.

He was hitting .333 with five home runs and a .906 OPS at Double-A Chattanooga. It was his second stint at Double-A and his OPS improved significantly over his .749 OPS there last season. A good showing over the next few weeks in Triple-A could put him in position to be called up to the majors later in the summer.
