The fielding aspect of this deal may be what's most interesting, given the fact that Gordon has never played a game in the outfield at the major league level.
In the trade, Miami acquired RHP Nick Neidert, switch-hitting SS Chris Torres and RHP Robert Dugger in exchange for Gordon and global signing bonus pool money. The deal also includes another $1 million for the Mariners to use in global slot money to chase Ohtani, which would bring their total to about $3.55 million, according to reports.

The lone season in which he did not manage to steal that many bases was 2016, as Gordon played in just 79 games due to an 80-game suspension after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs and finished the year with 30 stolen bases. And the two years prior to that, Gordon had a combined 122 steals. An all-star in 2014 and 2015, Gordon stole 60 bases for the Marlins in 2017.
The Mariners intend to shift Gordon to center field, where his elite speed could in time make him a fierce defender. Gordon has $38 million guaranteed left on his contract, plus a $14 million club option in 2021. Dee Gordon first broke into the big leagues in 2011 after being drafted in the fourth round in the 2008 draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.
