Dee Gordon (suspension) left a rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A New Orleans due to a leg cramp.
Gordon felt the cramp while running out of the box on a grounder to short in the fourth inning. If it is indeed just a cramp, he should remain on track to rejoin the Marlins on July 28. "He'll be out to take some grounders [Wednesday] and hopefully will be ready to go then," said Triple-A NOLA manager Arnie Beyeler. "He's been working out in Jupiter [Fla.], but you can't simulate the intensity of games. It's a little different animal in a live game, but we'll test it out tomorrow, and if it's not good we'll give him a day or two." Jul 20 - 12:28 PM

Dee Gordon (suspension) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Monday.

And if all goes according to plan, Gordon will rejoin the Marlins' active roster 10 days later on July 28. The star second baseman was suspended 80 games in April after testing positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. Gordon was batting just .266/.289/.340 in 97 plate appearances before the suspension, but he should be a great source of stolen bases and runs down the stretch in his return to an in-contention Marlins team. The 28-year-old hit .333/.359/.418 with 58 steals in 145 games last season. He is not eligible for the 2016 playoffs.

Dee Gordon is eligible to begin playing in minor league games on July 18.

And he should be ready to rock on that date, as he's been playing in simulated games at the Marlins' spring training complex for the last week. Gordon was suspended 80 games in April after testing positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. He's due back July 28 and can provide a nice boost for a Miami club in the thick of the National League Wild Card race. But a reminder that the 28-year-old second baseman is not eligible to participate in the postseason.
Jul 7 - 2:17 PM

MLB suspended Dee Gordon for 80 games without pay for testing positive for performance-enhancing substances.

Stunning late-night news. Gordon tested positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol. The suspension is effective immediately. Gordon has turned his career around over the past two seasons and won the NL batting crown during his first season with the Marlins last year. The 28-year-old recently signed a five-year, $50 million extension with Miami, but the club will now be without him until after the All-Star break.

Dee Gordon finished 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and two runs scored Sunday in the Marlins' 5-4 defeat of the Giants.

In the third inning, Gordon singled, stole second and third base, and then scored on a Christian Yelich groundout. In the fifth, he singled, made it to third base on a Marcell Ozuna base hit, and then raced home on another Yelich grounder. Some of the peripherals have been underwhelming, but the speedy second baseman boasts six stolen bases and 10 runs scored in 17 games this season.
Apr 24 - 7:30 PM

Dee Gordon is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Nationals.

Derek Dietrich will start at second base and hit sixth versus Washington right-hander Max Scherzer. Giancarlo Stanton is also getting a day off for the matinee game.
Apr 21 - 10:06 AM

Dee Gordon went 3-for-5 with a trio of singles in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

In addition to the three singles, Gordon also attempted a stolen base. He was thrown out on that try, the first time he has been caught stealing in 2016. The 27-year-old speedster is looking to stay the course after he posted a bevy of strong statistics in 2015. Among them, a .333/.359/.418 triple-slash, 88 runs scored, eight triples and 58 steals.
Apr 6 - 8:27 PM

Dee Gordon went 3-for-3 and swiped his first base of the spring Tuesday against the Mets.

Gordon is usually a big basestealer in spring training -- he averaged nine per year from 2012-2015 -- but now that he's established himself as a star, he can probably afford to take it easy on the basepaths until Opening Day. He's hitting .286 through 21 at-bats this spring.
Mar 15 - 5:22 PM

Marlins signed 2B Dee Gordon to a five-year, $50 million contract extension with a $14 million vesting option for 2021.

The five-year extension was agreed to last Wednesday and then officially announced by the Marlins' front office on Monday morning. Gordon had a brilliant first season in Miami in 2015, slashing .333/.359/.418 with a league-leading 205 hits and 58 steals while earning his first Gold Glove Award at second base. He should again be a fantasy monster in 2016. This new deal buys out all three of Gordon's arbitration years and at least two years of free agency.
Jan 18 - 10:13 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins and Dee Gordon have agreed in principle to a five-year, $50 million contract extension.

Per Rosenthal, the deal includes a $14 million vesting option for a possible sixth year. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman subsequently noted that the option will vest if Gordon reaches 600 plate appearances in year five, or reaches a combined 1,200 over years four and five. Gordon won the NL batting title in 2015, slashing .333/.359/.418 with four homers, 46 RBI, 88 runs scored and 58 steals across 653 plate appearances. He's swiped 55-plus in each of the last two seasons. In addition to the nice offensive work this past season, he also won his first Gold Glove. Gordon turns 28 in April.
Jan 13 - 9:14 PM

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Marlins have made an offer of a five-year contract extension to Dee Gordon.

The two sides continue to make progress toward an extension, though Gordon and his representatives are believed to be seeking seven years on the extension. After an impressive 2015 campaign where Gordon slashed .333/.359/.418 and won his first National League batting title and Gold Glove, he's in a position to earn a very lucrative extension.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins and Dee Gordon's agent are "making progress" on a contract extension.

The two sides are meeting in Nashville at the Winter Meetings and it appears the negotiations have gone well. Gordon is arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and is under team control through 2018. He batted .333/.359/.418 with 58 stolen bases in 2015 while making his second straight All-Star team and also winning his first Gold Glove.

Dee Gordon said on MLB Network's "Hot Stove" show Wednesday morning that his agent has been in discussions with the Marlins about a contract extension.

"My agent is doing the talking," said Gordon. "They're just keeping me in the loop. I think it's going pretty well right now. We'll see how that goes. I'm just playing the waiting game. We're going to do the right thing." Joe Frisaro of MLB.com hears that talks only recently started and are in the preliminary stages. Gordon is arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and is under team control through 2018.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Dee Gordon is generating "a ton" of trade interest.

We're guessing it would take a massive haul for the Marlins to even consider moving this year's NL batting champ, though Cafardo said they're at least willing to listen. A month ago Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported the Marlins were making a contract extension for Gordon "one of their first orders of business." It's unclear if that's changed.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins will explore making Dee Gordon an offer for a multi-year contract extension.

Though he isn't eligible to hit free agency until after the 2018 season, the Marlins are eager to lock him up for the long haul. The 27-year-old shortstop won his first batting title by hitting .333 in 2015 and also paced the National League with 58 stolen bases.
