Dodgers call up Dee Gordon

As a response to Hanley Ramirez‘s unfortunate hamstring injury suffered last night, the Dodgers have recalled Dee Gordon from Triple-A Albuquerque. As Craig noted, the Dodgers are a mess right now with a seemingly neverending rash of injuries. Adrian Gonzalez sat out last night with a neck injury, and Mark Ellis hasn’t played in a game since April 26.

Gordon has been performing well in the Minors to start the year, sitting on a .314 average with a 17-to-14 strikeout-to-walk ratio and 14 stolen bases in 16 attempts. In his 563 plate appearances at the Major League level between 2011-12, however, Gordon has been stymied with a .260 average, an 89-to-27 strikeout-to-walk ratio, and 56 steals in 73 attempts.

    This was the right move. Gordon was performing well offensively in the PCL, though 8 errors in 25 games leaves a lot to be desired on the other side of the ball. Still, the pre-Hanley shortstop duo of Luis Cruz and Justin Sellers were a combined 19 for 128 (.149) with 1 HR, 4 RBI and 0 SB to open the season, so it’s hard to image Gordon not providing a boost to the injury-ravaged Dodgers lineup.

      Hes no better offensively in the majors than the two you listed above and already cost the dodgers a run defensively. The only thing he has going for him is speed. Hes years away from being a decent major leaguer.

      You do realize there are more than two teams in the division, right? The Dodgers haven’t won a WS in 25 years, your team has won two of the last three, and yet the best handle you could come up with here is a grade-school taunt? You sound like you’d be happy if your team finished fourth as long as the Dodgers were fifth. Stay classy, Frisco.

        priority one is 3 of 4, priority two BEAT LA.

        Dont refer to San Francisco as Frisco, thats a city in Texas, brit.

        Fodger sounds a bit frisky.

        Yes, duck, I did that purposely because we all know what an inferiority complex San Fran has when it comes to their city’s name. Frisco is also a town in Colorado. For someone with a handle like yours it’s pretty funny you got your panties in a wad over a common California reference to SF.

    Half bottle of Don Julio will do that to me, kind of clever use of frisky tho brother
