Especially considering he destroyed double-A before that.
Gordon has a .787 OPS at the AA level in over 750 PA. Fine...but not exactly destroying the league. He was .906 in a small sample in 2018 before being promoted to AAA...primarily, because he showed the ability to hit the ball over the fence with 5 HR in 180 PA. Now, after 556 PA at the AAA level, he still hasn't gotten to 5 HR.
Not to say that his results this season (still only 146 PA due to injuries) haven't been encouraging. They have been. While the offensive expectations have taken a hit, I agree he's still in a position to be a useful major-leaguer.
