The Mariners continued their aggressive offseason Thursday by acquiring Marlins speedster Dee Gordon.

Gordon, predominantly known as a second baseman throughout his seven-year MLB career, appears to be in for a position change to center field. The Marlins already have Robinson Cano occupying second, and the eight-time All-Star isn't moving positions any time soon.

Speed and patience at the plate have helped Gordon become one of the best leadoff hitters in baseball over the last three years, but there have been some questions regarding his defense — even at second. Arm strength could be an issue for Gordon in center field.

Gordon wants to be Celtic’s most decorated keeper

  Gordon wants to be Celtic’s most decorated keeper Celtic’s Craig Gordon wants to become the club’s most decorated goalkeeper of all time, the Evening Times report. Gordon, who turns 35 on New Year’s Eve, has been with the club since 2014, winning seven major honours with the Hoops. The Scottish international has racked up three league titles, three League Cups and a Scottish Cup during his time at Celtic Park, and isn’t far off catching legendary Hoops keepers Packie Bonner and Ronnie Simpson in the major honours leaderboard. Despite his age, Gordon is showing no signs of his career coming to a close, with Scotland’s number one just two caps away from becoming Scotland’s second most capped keeper in history. Gordon was linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer, with the Premier League champions looking for a back-up goalkeeper, but the Scotsman stayed with Celtic. As Celtic prepare for their trip to Hibernian on the weekend, where they will look to stretch their domestic unbeaten run to 68 games, Gordon admitted he would love to become the Hoops’ all time most decorated keeper. “I am two major honours behind Packie Bonner and not far behind Ronnie Simpson, so I will try and get to that and surpass them to be the most decorated goalkeeper in Celtic’s history. That would be a great thing to achieve. It would be huge for me.

From an offensive standpoint, the move instantly makes Seattle better. Its lineup is rich with power bats like Cano, Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager and recently acquired Ryon Healy, but Gordon provides stability at the plate and savvy base-running to help balance the lineup.

After serving an 80-game performance-enhancing drug suspension in 2016, Gordon returned this season with a .308/.341/.375 slash line with 114 runs scored and 60 stolen bases. He also struck out just 93 times.

MLB trade rumors: With Dee Gordon dealt, which players Marlins could move next?We all knew this was a possibility, with the new ownership group — featuring Derek Jeter as its face — talking about cutting costs from the moment they took over. It’s not just the trade of Gordon that shows this group is serious about trimming payroll, it’s the fact that the Mariners are paying every penny of the $38 million Gordon was owed. The Marlins could have paid some of that cost and gotten better prospects in return but didn’t.

With new owners taking over in Miami this offseason, payroll was always destined to take a slash. Gordon has $38 million guaranteed left on his contract, plus a $14 million club option in 2021. The Marlins are also shopping reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton and his massive contract, possibly signaling a new era for the team.

The Mariners missed on the postseason this year, but they've already made positive moves to avoid the same fate next season.
