Dee Gordon SS LAD 6 Days
Dee Gordon went 1-for-2 and stole two bases in the Dodgers' loss to the Brewers Saturday.
Gordon started at second base, a suggestion that maybe he's entered the competition with Alexander Guerrero for the starting job. Gordon now has three stolen bases without being caught yet this spring. His speed is unquestioned, and if he can hit enough to stay afloat he's certainly got a chance to break camp with the club in some capacity.

Dee Gordon has added "considerable" muscle during the offseason, according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said the shortstop is up over 170 pounds after hitting the weights this winter. It's some much-needed strength for the 25-year-old, as extra-base hits have been nearly nonexistent in his first three seasons in the majors. He won't have a path to playing time as long as Hanley Ramirez is healthy, but if he ever does find regular starts he'll return to the fantasy radar for his speed alone.

Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles hears that the Dodgers have not discussed trading Dee Gordon to the Royals for Justin Maxwell.
The swap made some sense for the Royals, but the Dodgers already have a logjam in the outfield as is. Of course, it might not be that way for long if they end up dealing one of them, so we wouldn't rule out the swap as a possibility down the line.

Dee Gordon is starting in center field on Saturday for Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Winter League.
It still remains unclear if the Dodgers are considering a position switch, or merely want to increase Gordon's versatility. With a crowded outfield and infield already in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old speedster will need to show he can shine in a utility role if he wants to make the team out of spring training.

Dee Gordon's Dominican Winter League team, Tigres del Licey, is listing him as an outfielder.
Gordon took some fly balls in pre-game drills late in the season, but he's never played the outfield in the minors or majors. It's unclear whether the Dodgers are considering a position switch for the 25-year-old or if they might just be prepping him for a utility role. Gordon has batted only .256/.301/.312 across parts of three seasons with the Dodgers.

Dee Gordon worked out at second base and in the outfield prior to Tuesday's game.
He could see some playing time at the positions down the stretch, though it would only be in a bit role. "There's a possibility as the season goes on that we would see him somewhere other than short," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "I think we could see him play somewhere different."

Dodgers optioned SS Dee Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Gordon was called up from the minors earlier this month after Hanley Ramirez went down with a hamstring injury, but he did little with the opportunity, batting just .175/.278/.254 in 19 games. Ramirez's return is right around the corner, so Gordon may struggle to get another chance in the near future.
