Devaris "Dee" Gordon is an American professional baseball second baseman, shortstop, and center fielder for the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins. With the Dodgers, Gordon was primarily a shortstop, and with the Marlins, he was primarily a second baseman. He began playing center field in 2018 with the Mariners. In 2015, in his first season with the Marlins, Gordon hit .333 with a total of 205 hits and stole 58 bases. He led the NL in all three categories and became the first NL player to lead the league in both batting average and stolen bases since fellow second baseman Jackie Robinson in 1949.
On April 29, 2016, Major League Baseball suspended Gordon for 80 games due to performance-enhancing drug use. He tested positive for exogenous testosterone and clostebol.
Despite being Tom Gordon's son, the younger Gordon did not take up baseball until his high school years, having previously dedicated himself to basketball. He received a scholarship offer to play college basketball for the Louisville Cardinals.
Gordon played baseball at Avon Park High School (like his father), Seminole Community College, and Southeastern University, all in central Florida. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the fourth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Source.
