Gordon (suspension) registered his first hit Wednesday since returning to game action with Triple-A New Orleans earlier in the week.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon was back in the lineup after exiting Tuesday's game with some cramping. He's now 1-for-9 over his first three games as he shakes off the rust following an 80-game PED suspension. Gordon is eligible to return to the Marlins on July 28 and while he figures to regains his starting job a second base, Gordon is ineligible for the postseason so the team will likely continue to mix in Derek Dietrich at the keystone with regularity.

Gordon (suspension) is expected to begin a 10-game rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon is eligible to rejoin the Marlins on July 28, and he will spend some time with the club's Triple-A affiliate beforehand in an effort to get back into playing shape. Gordon will presumably resume his role as the Marlins' regular second baseman when he rejoins the big league club, but Derek Dietrich has at least given the Marlins something to think about, posting an .813 OPS over 58 games since Gordon's suspension was handed down.

Gordon tested positive for Testosterone and Clostebol and has been suspended for 80 games, Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The defending National League batting champion and a consensus second round pick in most fantasy drafts this spring will miss 80 games after testing positive for exogenous Testosterone and Clostebol, a modified form of testosterone. Gordon, 28, does not fit the stereotypical build for a PED user, at 5-foot-11 and 171 pounds, but his career trajectory fits the general mold, as someone who most had given up on after the 2013 season, but then jumped up to an All-Star caliber player in 2014 and 2015. The 80-game suspension will keep him out until July 28. Derek Dietrich figures to be the replacement at the keystone in the meantime, making him a worthwhile pickup in deeper leagues.

Gordon went 2-for-5 with two runs and two steals Sunday at the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon's speed on the bases was critical in a game the Marlins would only win by a single run. Although the speedster has six steals on the season, these were the first he's recorded in his last six games.

Gordon is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

After getting a routine day off Thursday leading up to a lengthy west coast road swing, Gordon will be back atop the order for Friday's contest in San Francisco. He'll be facing righty Jeff Samardzija for the first time in his career Friday.

Gordon is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon is 8-for-26 (.308) against Nationals starter Max Scherzer but just 4-for-21 (.190) in five games since April 16, so manager Don Mattingly decided to hold him out Thursday for the first time this season. Derek Dietrich will man the keystone Thursday in Gordon's place.

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a triple and one run scored in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon has tallied three multi-hit games in four contests this season while slashing a robust .421/.450/.737 through the opening week. He was, however, caught stealing for the second time Sunday afternoon and is 0-for-2 in stolen base attempts this season. Owners who drafted Gordon's elite speed may be frustrated with the early results, but the fact that he's attempted a pair of swipes in the first four games is encouraging. He'll continue to get a green light on the base paths and should begin to pile on the thefts quickly.

Gordon logged his second-straight three-hit effort Wednesday in a loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The speedy shortstop has six hits over the Marlins' first two games including two double and one triple to go along with one RBI and a pair of runs scored. He has yet to successfully swipe a base, and was caught once on Wednesday, but Gordon is certainly swinging a hot stick out of the gates.

Gordon went 1-for-3 with a triple, an RBI and a run in Wednesday's spring training game against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon had one of the best seasons in all the majors last year, posting a batting average of .333 on 205 hits while swiping 58 steals on the basepaths. The 27-year-old has seven hits during 24 plate appearances this spring and will try to achieve a .300/60-steal/100-run season in 2016.

Gordon agreed to a five-year, $50 million contract with the Marlins on Wednesday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon won the NL batting title last season and posted a career-best .777 OPS, so the Marlins decided to lock him in through 2020. The deal also includes a $14 million vesting option that could make him a Marlin for another season beyond that. Gordon will continue as the Marlins' regular second baseman and leadoff hitter in 2016 and beyond.
