Twins' Nick Gordon: Clears protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (illness) cleared COVID-19 protocols Tuesday and will begin a rehab assignment at the team's spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla., Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Gordon tested positive for COVID-19 at the beginning of July, but he'll finally be able to resume activity. It's unclear what shape the 24-year-old is in or whether he'll be available as depth for the Twins at some point in 2020, but Minnesota will forgo adding him to its 60-man player pool until assessing him at Fort Myers.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Still sidelined with COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon still has not reported to Minnesota's alternate site camp in St. Paul after testing positive for COVID-19, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "There are some protocols as to when you would test and subsequently test from an onset of symptoms and then from whenever symptoms do stop, so he's in that protocol," president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said.

Gordon was showing symptoms, according to Falvey, so he'll likely need some time to get back to full speed even when cleared to practice. Falvey said Gordon is feeling fine now. However, at this point he may not be an option for the Twins at the major-league level if needed for depth until the second half of the season.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Dealing with coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon has tested positive for COVID-19, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

Gordon will be kept apart from his teammates until MLB protocols allow him to return. The lost time this month will hurt his ability to be ready early in the season, though he could make an impact down the line as he's on the Twins' 40-man roster and hit a solid .298/.342/.459 in 70 games at Triple-A Rochester last season.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Beginning year at Rochester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Gordon to Triple-A Rochester on March 9.

In a repeat season at Rochester in 2019, Gordon showed significant improvement at the dish, but his .298/.342/.459 slash line (102 wRC+) still only translated to just above league-average production. While the 2014 first-round pick should eventually make his MLB debut at some point this season, the Twins likely view him as a more of a utility infielder over the long haul.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Plays first game since August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon made his spring debut Thursday, starting at second base and going 0-for-2. He hadn't played in a game since early August of last season because of a gastrointestinal issue, reports.

Gordon says the gastrointestinal issue has bothered him the last two seasons, reducing his playing weight from 185 pounds to 160 pounds during the 2018 season. After posting just a 52 wRC+in 2018, Gordon hit .298 with a .808 OPS and 102 wRC+ in 2019. He played just 70 games, however, missing time with a lower-leg bruise, a left adductor strain and the gastrointestinal ailment. Gordon, the fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft, is no longer seen as the shortstop of the future and may move to second base. He'll begin the year at Triple-A and could be called up during the season. It's possible he could improve significantly at the plate with better health.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Lands on MiLB IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was placed on the 7-day injured list Monday due to a lower left leg bruise, Brandon Warne of reports.

Gordon was struck by a pitch over the weekend, and he'll need at least a brief trip to the shelf as a result. He's slashing .298/.342/.459 with four homers, 40 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 70 games this season for Triple-A Rochester.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Rochester activated Gordon (thigh) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

After missing a month of action earlier this season due to a stomach issue, Gordon's latest IL stint didn't prove nearly as lengthy. He'll return to the active roster after missing just over the minimum amount of time with a thigh strain and should immediately reclaim an everyday role at shortstop.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Shut down with thigh strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Rochester placed Gordon on its 7-day injured list Tuesday with a left adductor strain.

Gordon will head to the IL for a second time this season after previously missing a month of action due to a case of acute gastritis. Though he's hit well in his eight games at Rochester to date, Gordon will need to stay on the field for a prolonged period before the Twins seriously entertain calling him up to the big-league roster. He's without a clear timeline to return to action following his latest setback on the health front.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Rochester reinstated Gordon (illness) from its 7-day injured list Thursday.

Gordon is ready to make his 2019 debut in affiliated ball after a bout with acute gastritis kept him on the shelf for nearly a month. The Twins were apparently satisfied with how he checked out during simulated games at extended spring training, so the expectation is that he'll be ready to fill an everyday role at shortstop for Rochester.

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 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 move protects 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. The 23-year-old doesn't pose as a future superstar, but his decent speed, solid contact ability and proximity to the majors have him at least on the redraft radar for 2019.

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.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Shining in repeat tour of Southern League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles and a stolen base Wednesday for Double-A Chattanooga.

The 22-year-old middle infielder is now slashing .339/.369/.534 with three home runs, four steals (on six attempts) and a 20:7 K:BB in 118 at-bats in a repeat tour of the Southern League. The Twins could have sent him to Triple-A this season, where his production would likely have looked much less impressive, but instead they gave him the chance to truly shine at a level for the first time in his pro career. His .903 OPS dwarfs his previous career best of .749.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Hot start at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is 7-for-18 (.389 average) with one steal and a 3:2 K:BB in five games for Double-A Chattanooga.

He was surprisingly sent back to Double-A after playing 122 games in the Southern League last year. He will probably be promoted to Triple-A in the near future, and should continue to post impressive offensive numbers as long as he remains at this level.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Starting season at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is expected to report to Double-A Chattanooga to begin the season, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

Gordon shouldn't stick around at Chattanooga for long after appearing in 122 games for the club in 2017, finishing with a .270/.341/.408 line to go with 46 extra-base hits and 13 stolen bases. The 22-year-old shortstop could get a look with the big club at some point in the second half of the season if he continues to tear it up in the minors.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon was reassigned to Minnesota's minor league camp. He hit .409 (9 for 22) during spring training.

Gordon made a strong impression in big league camp, but he'll need to continue to impress at either Double-A Chattanooga or Triple-A Rochester to begin the season. The 2014 fifth overall draft pick could reach the majors earlier than expected with Jorge Polanco suspended 80 games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. Eduardo Escobar will start at shortstop in place of Polanco, but the Twins may need to tap into their depth at shortstop in the minors earlier than planned.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Back in action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (wrist) played three innings and went 0-for-2 at the plate Sunday against the Pirates.

Gordon had been out since Wednesday as he had to tend to a mild wrist strain. While he was able to return Sunday, he struggled and struck out in both of his at-bats. Now that Gordon has returned to full health, he'll likely see regular time in Minnesota's lineup for the team's remaining Grapefruit League games.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Dealing with mild wrist strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon suffered a mild right wrist strain while sliding into third base during the club's Grapefruit League game Tuesday and will be considered day-to-day, Mike Berardino of The Pioneer Press reports.

Gordon was able to stay in the game and finish the contest, even fielding a groundball without any noticeable problem. It's likely that the Twins will be cautious with their shortstop prospect and let him completely heal before thrusting him back into the lineup. Gordon is coming off a strong campaign at the Double-A level and is expected to open the season with Triple-A Rochester.
