The latest Dee Gordon MLB and fantasy baseball news

The Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned SS Dee Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque. In a corresponding move, the team activated OF Jerry Hairston Jr. (knee) from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon being sent down could indicate Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) could be close to returning. Nick Punto and Luis Cruz could see time at shortstop until Ramirez returns. Neither should be considered in mixed leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Dee Gordon snapped a hitless streak of 25 at-bats Saturday, May 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals, with a fourth-inning single.
Tue, 21 May 2013 12:54:26 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) is doing running drills Tuesday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though it may be tough for Ramirez to beat his initial timetable of four weeks. There's a chance that the Dodgers shift Ramirez back to third base when he's ready to return in order to keep Dee Gordon at shortstop.

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled C Tim Federowicz from the minors Wednesday, May 8, and optioned SS Justin Sellers in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Ramon Hernandez hasn't been contributing at all with his bat, so expect Federowicz to be the primary offensive backup to A.J. Ellis. Sellers being optioned confirms that the Dodgers will run with Dee Gordon as their primary shortstop with Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) out. There's a decent chance Gordon will stay at short when Ramirez returns, too.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly didn't sound optimistic about the chances of SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) returning from the disabled list when he's eligible. "A while ... I hope that puts it in the right category," Mattingly said. "You never really know when a guy's ready or not because you can't ever get to the intensity that you need to get to on the hamstring where you're going to explode and ask for more of your body. It's going to be a while." Ramirez, on the other hand, is hoping for a quick recovery.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon started at shortstop both Saturday and Sunday in Ramirez's absence. Justin Sellers is still on roster, and he may get the occasional start at shortstop, but Gordon should now be owned in all leagues because of his speed and the fact that Ramirez could be out for quite a while. Also, the Dodgers are considering moving Ramirez to third base whenever he does return.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly did not rule out the possibility of SS Dee Gordon keeping the shortstop job and moving SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) to third base when he returns.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to place SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because of a left hamstring injury sustained while running the bases Friday, May 3. In a corresponding move, SS Dee Gordon will be called up from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain at this time if Gordon or INF Justin Sellers will get the bulk of the playing time at shortstop, but Gordon appears to be the better bet and is the more attractive fantasy pickup for his speed. In 25 games for Albuquerque this year, Gordon hit .314 with 12 RBIs and 14 steals. Sellers might remain a factor for NL-only leaguers.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Dee Gordon has been fielding ground balls at second base before his games with Triple-A Albuquerque. It is believed the Dodgers are considering moving Gordon to second base long term. Gordon struggled at shortstop when he was with the team last season and has committed seven errors so far this season with Albuquerque.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are sold on SS Justin Sellers because of his defense, and he could see plenty of playing time early in the season, according to manager Don Mattingly. "Obviously, we'll see where it goes," Mattingly said. "With the pitching staff we've put together, we want to make sure we catch it as much as we can." The Dodgers like Sellers at shortstop more than SS Dee Gordon. "We want to be able to catch it," Mattingly said. "And we're willing to sacrifice offense to do it."
Fantasy Tip: Sellers is only worth starting if you are extremely desperate to fill a middle infield spot in the deepest of NL leagues. It looks as though Gordon will remain in the minors, so if you picked him up in hopes the Dodgers would go with him at short, it's probably safe to cut him at this point.

The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned SS Dee Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque and OF Yasiel Puig to Double-A Chattanooga Tuesday, March 26.
Fantasy Tip: Puig was expected to begin in the minors this year, but he might be in consideration for a full-time job in the outfield next season. Gordon's demotion means Luis Cruz will open at shortstop. Some combination of Juan Uribe, Jerry Hairston Jr. and Nick Punto will rotate at third base. Uribe is expected to get the most PT, so he is worth a desperation addition in NL-only leagues.
