Mariners’ Dee Gordon voices displeasure with J.A. Happ after being hit by an errant pitch

Seattle Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon is in the midst of a bounceback season following a disappointing first year in the pacific northwest. He entered Thursday’s game against the New York Yankees hitting .304/.327/.406 (103 OPS+) with 10 stolen bases on 11 tries. Unfortunately, Gordon might have to put his rebound season on pause due to injury.

That’s because Gordon exited Thursday’s game after being struck in the wrist by an errant J.A. Happ pitch. Afterward Gordon, who will undergo more tests on Friday to determine if he suffered a fracture, voiced his displeasure with Happ:

...

Gordon’s frustration is understandable. Not only is he having a better season than last year, but he’s potentially missing action at a time when the Mariners need all the help they can get. That stinks—doubly so because Gordon seems like a wonderful human being on top of being an entertaining player to watch.

If I recall how the unwritten rules work, this means that, at the current rate of escalation, the entire Yankees team will be on IL/DL with baseball-related injuries- and, somehow, they’ll piece together a record above .500 using peanut vendors, clubhouse attendants, and the occasional passer-by.

Dee Gordon blast gives Mariners an MLB record with 15 straight games with home run to open season

KANSAS CITY — It wasn’t Edwin Encarnacion or Jay Bruce, nor was it Daniel Vogelbach or Ryon Healy or any of the expected home run bashers.

So it had to be Mitch Haniger, the team’s best overall hitter, right?

Wrong.

The Mariners went into Major League Baseball’s record books thanks to the home-run power of Dee Gordon.

Some additional data points in the analysis of the rise in home runs in recent years.
