Is Dee Gordon still playing for the Mariners?

Strange-Gordon has spent the previous three seasons with the Seattle Mariners, where he was an All-Star in 2014 and 2015. In 75 at-bats, the left-handed batter had a.200 batting average,.268 on-base percentage, and one extra-base hit. He's slated to become a free agent after this season.

In 2012, Gordon made his debut with the Mariners' major league team and appeared in 81 games that year. Over those 81 games, he hit.273 with four home runs and 21 RBIs. In 2013, Gordon played in only 46 games due to injury but did not miss a beat when he returned in August; he ended up hitting.303 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in those 31 games.

Overall, Gordon has been very successful during his time with the Mariners; he has a career batting average of.272 with 23 home runs and 105 RBIs in 582 games. He's also known for being one of the fastest players in baseball while wearing number 14.

After spending three years with the Mariners, Gordon signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in November 2017. He played 79 games that year batting.275 with five homers and 34 RBIs.

He continued to play well in 2018, hitting over.300 with six homers and 52 RBIs in only 76 games. That earned him a spot on the National League All-Star Team.

How Good Is Dee Gordon?

Dee Gordon-Strange led the Single-A Great Lakes Loons with 301 hits and 73 steals. Strange-Gordon led the National League in 2015 with 205 hits, 58 stolen bases, and a.333 batting average for the Marlins. He was also chosen to his second all-star squad and received both a gold glove and a silver slugger at second base.

The son of former major league player Dee Gordon, Dee has always been known for his speed but also got more attention because of his father's name. He made an immediate impact in pro ball by being named the most valuable player in the minors after he hit.443 in 51 games for Class A Jupiter. He was also voted best defensive second baseman in the league that year.

In 2011, he finished first in MVP voting after hitting.443 with 22 homers and 102 RBIs. The next year, he became the first player in Minor League history to hit over.400 with at least 20 homers and 100 RBIs when he did it again with Jacksonville (116 RBIs). In between, he had two other seasons where he reached 100 RBIs.

He made his major league debut on April 17, 2015. That same day, he stole two bases against Arizona's Patrick Corbin and Miami's Josh Tomlin. He ended up playing in 81 games that season and scored 57 runs while stealing a career high 69 bags. He had three straight years with 30 or more thefts before reaching the big leagues.

What did Dee Gordon do for the Reds?

Strange-Gordon joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee on Sunday, meaning he's not even assured a position on the roster. He's spent the most of his career as a second baseman, but he's made at least 13 starts at shortstop over the previous four seasons.

This season, Gordon is anticipated to serve as a super-utility player for the Mariners. According to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times, Mariners manager Scott Servais stated Thursday that he couldn't comment on why Gordon (undisclosed) was left out of the team's intrasquad game the day before.

Strange-Gordon did not make an appearance in the majors early in the season, and he should report to Triple-A Iowa to begin his Cubs career. Strange-Gordon was released from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Gordon was supposed to play left field and lead off in Wednesday's intrasquad game, but he'll instead sit out. It's unknown what's keeping the 28-year-old from taking the field, and whether he'll be out for much longer remains to be seen.

Why was Dee Gordon let go by the Brewers?

Strange-Gordon had time with the Brewers earlier in the season, but he was released on Saturday. After Nico Hoerner sustained a hamstring injury on Tuesday, he'll find a new minor-league opportunity a few days later. The Cubs are expected to call up their young shortstop soon after that.

In his only game with the Brewers this year, Gordon hit an home run and scored a run while playing good defense at short. He was then sent back to the minors before being traded to the Dodgers.

The Brewers' decision not to bring him back this season is likely due to their strong position in the division. They're expected to spend their resources on other areas of need this offseason, like third base. And with Daniel Murphy expected to be moved before Thursday's trade deadline, there isn't much hope for Gordon to get another chance with the team next year.

He was drafted by Milwaukee out of high school in 2013 and spent three seasons in their system before making it to the big league level this year. During that time, he displayed good speed and contact skills as well as a solid batting eye. However, because there are so many good shortstops in the majors, he wasn't able to win a spot early on in camp or during the season.
