Nick Gordon Is On The Move To Miami Marlins | He’s a Top 5 MLB Utility Guy

MLBbro Nick Gordon is on the move to the Miami Marlins. In return, the Minnesota Twins get left-handed reliever Steven Okert. The Marlins are looking for Gordon to make plays on the baseball diamond. That’s what he has done throughout his career. Gordon was drafted in 2014 and broke into the major at 25 on May 6, 2021, with the Minnesota Twins. Gordon is known for wearing many hats on the field as an extraordinary utility man.

 

Nick Gordon From MLB’s Royal Gordon Family

 

Baseball runs in Gordon’s blood with his father, Tom Gordon becoming a three-time all-star and posting a 21-year career in the major leagues from 1988 to 2009.

 

 

Then his brother, Dee Strange-Gordon, was a three-time MLB stolen base leader along with having an 11-year career in the majors. Just how his brother and father made a name for themselves, Gordon has proven himself to be a great utility man.

 

Nick Gordon: Utility Man Supreme

 

When you think or hear the term, “Utility Man” in sports that’s a guy that can do anything for the team no matter what it is. This guy is a playmaker, for example when you see Travis Hunter in Colorado. Hunter plays wide receiver and defensive back; he changes the game on both sides of the field. Just how Hunter changes the game on the gridiron, Gordon changes the game on the baseball diamond.

During Gordon’s time with the Minnesota Twins, he was considered a top prospect coming out of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft. The Twins selected him with the fifth overall pick in the first round. Since making his debut in Major League baseball in 2021 Gordon has had a good career. In almost 700 at bats, Gordon has recorded an .250 batting average and has racked up 174 base hits with 15 Bro Bombs. 

 

 

 

Gordon has had some great games with the Twins, earning the honor of being MLBbro “Home Boi” of the week on August 8th, 2022.

Gordon was on a tear, batting .417 and hitting in 5 of the last 7 games. He was 10-for-24 with a home run and five RBI over that stretch, which gives you an indication of how hot he can get with the bat. 

 

If Gordon gives the Marlins games and stretches like this, there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that they have won this trade.
