Twins' Nick Gordon: Starting in left field

Gordon is starting in Saturday's game against the Guardians. Gordon saw inconsistent playing time in early May, but he'll draw a third consecutive start in left field Saturday. Trevor Larnach (groin) remains on the 10-day injured list, so Gordon should serve as the Twins' primary left fielder after Alex Kirilloff was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Sits after two straight starts

Gordon is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Byron Buxton (knee) remains out for the third game in a row, but after starting in center field the previous two contests, the lefty-hitting Gordon will take a seat with a southpaw (Rich Hill) on the mound for Boston. Gordon should continue to see the bulk of the work in center field against right-handed pitching while Buxton is out, but at this stage, the Twins remain hopeful that Buxton will avoid a trip to the injured list.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Expected to be ready by Opening Day

Manager Rocco Baldelli said Wednesday that Gordon (head) should be ready for Friday's season opener against the Mariners, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Gordon passed concussion testing after his outfield collision in Monday's Grapefruit League game. He didn't appear to be in line for a lengthy absence, and he'll ultimately be available once the regular season gets underway Friday. Gordon slashed .333/.385/.583 with a home run, a triple, a double, nine RBI, five runs and a stolen base across 11 spring appearances, and he's in line to play a depth role to begin the 2022 campaign.

Twins' Nick Gordon: Looks set for utility role

Gordon started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's spring training win over Baltimore. He's hitting .333 (8-for-24) with a stolen base this spring. Gordon looks set to make the major-league roster in a utility role with Tim Beckham sent to the minors. Gordon hit just .240 with a .774 OPS last season as he struck out too often (25.5%) and drew too few walks (5.5%) for a player lacking significant power. He did steal 10 bases, however, which should give him some fantasy value even in a reserve role.
