Ken Gurnick of MLB.com passes along word that Dee Gordon required several stitches to close a gash in his lip after taking a bad hop grounder to the face during batting practice this afternoon.

While that sounds awfully painful, Dodgers trainer Sue Falsone said that Gordon is expected to be back in camp tomorrow with no limitations.

Gordon, who turns 24 in April, batted .304/.325/.362 with 11 RBI, 24 stolen bases, 34 runs scored and a .686 OPS over 233 plate appearances at the major league level last year. He is expected to open the season as the Dodgers’ starting shortstop and leadoff man.

    If dodgers can find a way for all to fire on all cylinders, they’re going to be dangerous. They have one of the best position player (kemp) & pitcher (kershaw). Dodgers will be contenders in 2012!!!!

      Thank god that assclown McCourt is almost gone. Of course, its going to suck for fans when he starts charging $25 a game to park in HIS lot.

        In that event, either the boycott will continue or Dodger fans will park elsewhere. No way we continue to support McAsshat, but I can’t see anyone in their right mind buying the team and letting him hang around in any way.
