Mariners manager Scott Servais said he doesn't expect Dee Gordon (toe) to be out much longer than 10 days.
Gordon was placed on the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after being diagnosed with a fracture in his right big toe, but it's a minor fracture and so this won't be too long of an absence. That's great news, as the 30-year-old speedster has batted .304 with 16 stolen bases and 25 runs scored in 45 games this season for Seattle. He recently moved back to second base (from center field) following the announcement of Robinson Cano's 80-game drug suspension. May 22 - 7:05 PM

Date:

Mariners placed 2B Dee Gordon on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a fractured right big toe.

In place of Gordon, the Mariners are calling up Dan Vogelbach. It's just another in a long line of bad luck occurrences for Seattle, as the left-handed hitting lead off hitter had just made a switch to second base after the suspension of Robinson Cano for 80 games for testing positive for a masking agent. Gordon was off to a strong start on the season, hitting .304 with 25 runs scored and an AL-leading 16 steals. We won't see him back with the Mariners until June now, at the earliest, and this toe fracture could sideline him through the All-Star break.
May 22 - 1:56 PM

Dee Gordon had a single, a stolen base and scored the game-winning run in the 11th inning of Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Gordon led off the 11th inning with a single and stole second base, his 16th steal of the year, before motoring around to score the winning run on Jean Segura's single. Gordon got the start at second base in the game, and he's likely to split time between the keystone and center field now that Robinson Cano is out for the foreseeable future. The 30-year-old is hitting a healthy .304/.330/.386 with 25 runs scored and those AL-best 16 steals this year.

Dee Gordon took grounders at second base prior to Thursday's game against the Tigers.

Gordon will DH on Thursday but beat reporter Greg Johns of MLB.com said his move to second base is "imminent." The 30-year-old spent the first several years of his career at second base before transitioning to center field in 2018. He'll handle second base until Robinson Cano returns from his 80-game PED suspension. Gordon already had second-base eligibility in most formats, so this move should have minimal fantasy impact.
May 17 - 6:35 PM

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday that Dee Gordon will begin taking grounders at second base to prepare for a possible move.

That could be the answer to plugging the hole at second base created by Robinson Cano's PED suspension. Gordon spent the first seven years of his MLB career as a middle infielder before shifting to center field for the 2018 campaign following an offseason trade from Miami to Seattle. Gordon moving to second would open more playing time in the outfield for Guillermo Heredia.
May 15 - 6:49 PM

Dee Gordon (toe) went 0-for-7 with a walk, a hit by pitch, a run scored and an RBI during a doubleheader in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Gordon hadn't played since leaving Thursday's game with a bruised toe. He should be fine moving forward.
May 13 - 8:27 AM

Updating an earlier report, Dee Gordon is sitting out Thursday's game against the Blue Jays with a bruised right toe.

Gordon suffered the injury after fouling a ball off his toe. Luckily it's not serious and the Mariners expect him back in the lineup for Friday's series opener in Detroit. That's good news for fantasy owners as Gordon has cruised to a .340 average in the early going. He's also tied for the major league lead with 15 steals.
May 10 - 5:09 PM

Dee Gordon is not in the Mariners' lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

He's getting the night off against Jays lefty J.A. Happ. Guillermo Heredia will spell Gordon in center field and bat eighth. Gordon was due for a breather, having appeared in all 35 games to this point.
May 10 - 4:28 PM

Dee Gordon is not in the Mariners' lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

It's just a breather for Gordon against lefty Tyler Skaggs. Guillermo Heredia will start in center field in Gordon's stead. The 30-year-old has been dynamite for the M's this year, batting .352 with 14 steals and 20 runs scored atop the lineup.
May 5 - 5:03 PM

Dee Gordon finished 5-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 6-3 victory against the Athletics.

Gordon is 9-for-10 over the past two games, and the five hits equaled a career best. He has accomplished the feat three times, and this was his first five-hit outing since 2015. He's the first player with at least five hits and at least two steals in the same game since teammate Jean Segura accomplished the feat in 2016 as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
May 2 - 3:59 AM

Dee Gordon had a four-hit afternoon in a win over the Indians on Sunday.

Gordon also knocked in a run and scored one himself in the rout. The outfielder had been slowed by a knee injury and had struggled over his past few games, but the four hits has his average back up to .300 on the season. Assuming good health, he should stay around that range while providing plenty of steals as well.
Apr 29 - 4:59 PM

Dee Gordon (knee) returned to the Mariners' starting lineup on Saturday.

Gordon left Friday's game after banging his knee into the center field wall, but the injury appears to have been minor. He's batting in his customary leadoff spot against Carlos Carrasco and the Indians on Saturday.
Apr 28 - 12:44 PM

Mariners' manager Scott Servais said Friday night that Dee Gordon is sore after banging his knee on the outfield wall, but that the injury wasn't believed to be serious.

Gordon remained in the game for a few innings afterwards before being lifted for precautionary reasons. He should be considered day-to-day.
Apr 27 - 10:36 PM

Dee Gordon was removed from Friday's game against the Indians for precautionary reasons after crashing into the outfield wall.

Gordon was trying to track down Yonder Alonso's home run ball when he collided with the wall in center field. He was able to stay in the game for another couple of innings, but was ultimately lifted to give him a bit of a breather. It wouldn't be a shocker to see him held out on Saturday as well, just to be safe. Consider him day-to-day.
Apr 27 - 9:27 PM

Dee Gordon hit an RBI triple and scored a run in Thursday's win over the Indians.

Gordon sent a line drive into the opposite field gap, turning on the jets to speed into third for his first triple of the year. He finished 1-for-5 in the game. He's hit a bit of a cold snap, with just two hits in his last 18 at-bats, but Gordon is still batting .286/.314/.378 with 13 runs scored and a league-high nine stolen bases on the year.
