Gordon had a perfect night at the dish, driving in three runs while going 5-for-5 in a loss tot he Mets.
Gordon is scorching hot to start the season, batting .400/.415/.520 in his first 12 games in Miami. He's scored seven times and driven home nine RBI over 50 at-bats while swiping six bags in the process. While it would be nice to see Gordon become a bit more efficient on the basepaths as he's been caught stealing four times in ten attempts, it is tough to complain about a player whose posted five multi-hit efforts in his last nine games.

Gordon was 3-for-5 with a walk, a pair of stolen bases, and four runs scored in an extra innings win over Tampa Bay on Friday night.
This is exactly what the Marlins were looking for when they acquired him - someone to ignite their offense. The top four hitters in the lineup (Gordon, Yelich, Stanton, and Morse) went a combined 9-for-17 with seven runs scored and eight driven in as they defeated the Rays.

Gordon went 1-for-4 and swiped his first base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.
The Marlins looked like they had something going in the third inning, loading the bases for cleanup hitter Mike Morse with two outs, but Braves starter Shelby Miller was able to escape unscathed. Gordon has reached base in each of his first three games with the Marlins and has a pair of stolen base attempts so far. He'll continue to get plenty of opportunities to spark the Marlins' offense by being aggressive on the basepaths.

Gordon went 1-for-4 with an RBI in his Marlins debut.
Miami's new leadoff man got the team on the board with an RBI single in the third, but was thrown out trying to steal second base moments later. Gordon blamed the miscue on a wet track thanks to a head-scratching rain delay in a stadium equipped with a retractable roof. Regardless of the results, it is nice to see Gordon off and running early with his new team.

The Marlins are planning on using Gordon as their leadoff hitter, the team's official site reports.
With the acquisition of Gordon from the Dodgers, the Marlins want to infuse speed atop their batting order. Subsequently, Christian Yelich will move down, either to the second or third spot. Manager Mike Redmond is expected to try a few different lineups during spring training. Gordon is hardly a lock to keep the top spot all season, as he struggled in the second half with the Dodgers and posted a .300 on-base percentage after the All-Star break.

Gordon agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Marlins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.
Gordon will make five times as much as he made in 2014 in his first year of arbitration, and the 26-year-old will receive additional $25,000 if he earns another All-Star selection in his first year with Miami. Written off by some following a disappointing start to his career, Gordon hit .289/.326/.378 with 64 steals in 83 attempts last season, though he was relatively lucky with a .346 BABIP (.326 for career).

The Dodgers agreed to trade Gordon to the Marlins on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.
Other names in the trade have not yet been confirmed, but pitching prospect Andrew Heaney is believed to be headed to Los Angeles in the deal. Gordon certainly represents an upgrade at second base for the Marlins, who relied heavily on the likes of Donovan Solano, Jeff Baker and Jordany Valdespin at the position last season. The league leader in stolen bases in 2014, Gordon also posted a career-high .704 OPS, more than 90 points above his 2013 mark.
