2015

The fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft and brother of Dee Gordon, Nick hit .294/.333/.366 with one homer and 11 steals in 57 games with rookie-level Elizabethon before a broken finger prematurely ended his season. A left-handed hitting shortstop, Gordon offers plus-speed and the ability to hit to all fields, but he'll need to add strength as he advances through the minor leagues in order to avoid being overpowered by opposing pitchers at the highest level. At just 19 years old, it will be a while before Gordon reaches the majors, but there's reason to believe that he could be an impact player in the majors.
