Trying to find any news on Gordon that explains his complete absence from any grapefruit action to this point. The obvious suspicion is that there's an injury...but can't for the life of me find anything of that sort that's been reported.

 

What did I miss?

Right there with you J.K.

 

I'd also be curious as to the time frame for Buxton's debut this spring...

That Twins 2nd baseman - #29 - he doesn't run, he "ca-rew-zes" - Earl Weaver

The Twins have found a way to keep Buxton off the disabled list by not playing him in any games. So far, it seems to be working.

?? Well, it doesn't seem to be the Twins beat writers. He's a first-round draft pick, still assumed to be on track for at least a utility (or depth) role in the major leagues....probably worthy of note explaining what's going on, no?

Patrick Reusse tweeted yesterday that Gordon has not played yet due to an intestinal ailment.

Read something recently ... maybe another thread ... where it said that it was the same thing as last year. Very odd, imo.

Edit: Found it. Seth gave an update in his ‘Report from the Fort’ 2 days ago:

One could say Gordan can't stomach spring training.

This is the second year in a row that he has done this? Cut ties with the guy because he obviously can't put the practice in .

Is there any chance, at all, that the guy's suffering from a medical issue and you're simply clueless about that?

If so,more of a reason to dump him and move on.

By all means, let's dump a former 1st round pick that just had an .801 OPS in AAA and has been at least two years younger than the average player at every level he's played at.Especially for a team that does not have great depth at SS.

So.... when people are asked to describe you, do they say “He’s ok once you get to know him”?

I'm looking really close and I hope when you say "dump him" that it's just a very good gastrointestinal joke. Otherwise, I don't get this take.
