Dodgers are Shopping Gordon at Winter Meetings
- Updated: December 2, 2012
Earlier this off-season, Los Angeles Dodgers’ manager Don Mattingly said the team was planning to keep Hanley Ramirez at shortstop and play Luis Cruz at third base, leaving little to no room for speedy Dee Gordon.
After a good showing in 2011, Gordon, 24, failed to live up to the Dodgers’ expectations. In 2012, Gordon hit just .228 with an on-base percentage of .280 and a slugging percentage of just .281 in an injury-shortened season where he only received 330 at-bats.
Gordon returned from injury in the middle of September, but because of the combination of the Dodgers’ acquisition of Hanley Ramirez and the emergence of Luis Cruz, who batted .298 in 2012 with an on-base percentage of .322 and a slugging percentage of .431, he has found himself as the odd man out on the Dodgers’ roster.
As a result, the Dodgers have begun informing other teams that Dee Gordon is available.
Interest in Gordon is expected to increase once Stephen Drew is off the market.
