The Dodgers are shopping Dee Gordon

Dee Gordon is fast and flashy, but he can’t hit very well. That said, shortstops are scarce and thus valuable, so it makes some sense that the Dodgers are shopping Gordon, as Peter Gammons of the MLB Network reports.

Scarcity aside, it seems like a stretch for the Dodgers to get a ton for Gordon during the offseason. Gordon missed almost the entire second half with a thumb injury and was replaced by Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez’s future may very well be third base, but as it stands, Gordon looks like a guy even his own team doesn’t have a ton of use for at the moment.

Perhaps L.A. would do better to showcase his health and ability this spring if they want to get something good in return for him.

    If another team values him as part of a package that yields a good SP, then great. Short of that, he still has value to the Dodgers even if he starts at AAA. Hanley Ramirez may yet end up at 3B, Luis Cruz may come back to earth and Mark Ellis could battle another injury. Gordon, despite his weaknesses, remains an in-house option in any of these scenarios and he is still young enough to qualify as a prospect. Not one with a high ceiling anymore but still some potential.

    “You had me at ‘can’t hit very well.’ We’ll have to just overlook the ‘flashy’ for now and hope it turns into grittiness down the road. How about Miguel Sano? He hits pretty well, so he doesn’t really fit our organization’s model going forward.” -Terry Ryan
