  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Produces steal off bench

    Gordon went 0-for-1 with a stolen base in Saturday's 5-3 extra-innings loss to the Angels.

    Gordon got aboard on a fielder's choice and stole second in the 10th inning, but Max Kepler struck out one at-bat later to end the Twins' threat of a rally. With Kepler and Byron Buxton over their recent injuries, Gordon has been left to compete with Jake Cave and Gilberto Celestino for no more than two spots in the lineup on a daily basis. Through 91 contests, Gordon is slashing a solid .276/.323/.424 with six steals, five home runs, 20 RBI and 30 runs scored.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Records theft in Saturday's win

    Gordon went 2-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    Gordon was involved in a scary collision with Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza, who left the game with a dislocated shoulder. Gordon was able to stay in and played the full game in center field. He's made himself valuable to the Twins with Byron Buxton battling nagging injuries lately -- Gordon has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, going 14-for-27 (.519) in that span. The outfielder has a .284/.333/.440 slash line, five steals, five home runs, 20 RBI and 29 runs scored through 254 plate appearances. He should still have a regular path to playing time with Alex Kirilloff (wrist) and Trevor Larnach (abdomen) sidelined, leaving left field wide open as well as center when Buxton needs rest.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Homer and double in win

    Gordon went 3-for-5 with a three-home run, an additional run scored and a double in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

With the Twins' outfield still battling numerous injury absences, Gordon should continue to get chances to play. He's slashing .279/.327/.437 with 20 RBI, 27 runs scored, 15 doubles, three triples and four stolen bases through 250 plate appearances.
