RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Gordon looks on track to be Minnesota's starting shortstop of the future after hitting .291/.335/.386 for High-A Fort Myers. At just 20 years old in High-A, he more than held his own, hitting 12 percent better than league average (112 wRC+). He then had a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League, hitting .346 with an .862 OPS. Gordon is still growing into what could be fringe-average power, but while he projects to hit for a bit more pop than his older brother, he falls well short of Dee in the speed department. Gordon was only successful on 19 of 32 stolen-base attempts at High-A (59.4 percent success rate), and lacks plus speed. Against big league batteries, he only projects to steal 10-20 bases in his peak. He needs to be more selective in order to profile as a leadoff hitter (4.7 percent walk rate), but his contact skills (17.5 percent strikeout rate) and above-average hit tool should allow him to be an everyday player. Look for him to debut in late 2018.

2016

The fifth overall pick in the 2014 draft began the season slow by hitting .250/.325/.301 in the first half at Low-A Cedar Rapids, but bounced back by hitting .302/.347/.416 in the second half. A left-handed hitting shortstop, Gordon offers plus speed and the ability to hit to all fields, but he'll need to add more power to be a star player with the bat. He's had good reviews for his defense and could make up for his lack of power with his glove. He was young for his level at just 19 so his power may develop as he matures. He could be an impact player in the majors in just a few years.

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.
