Injuries happen, and in this case, it's a broken bone, which is probably one of the easier ones to recover from. I guess I don't see the big deal with the lost time in instructionals. He's going to start in CR next year, so he's already pretty well advanced for an HS prospect, and the injury in question really doesn't have long term consequences.

I think the lost time in instructionals is primarily and potentially important on the defensive side. Instructionals is where prospects get to focus on learning nuances of their positions and whether that's refining his SS skills or getting some work in at another position, it's unfortunate if Gordon misses that time this fall, even if it is not a major hurdle in his path to the big leagues.
