The Atlanta Braves have reportedly inquired about the availability of infielder Dee Gordon, though they are said to be shopping for a left fielder. Gordon, currently with the Dodgers, has spent his entire major league career at shortstop, but Atlanta apparently believes he has the versatility to succeed in a utility role.
Gordon would certainly help move towards Atlanta's goal of a younger, faster roster. He has just two years in the majors, over which he's posted a .260 batting average, .315 slugging percentage and .299 on base percentage. He had a .304 batting average in his rookie year, in which he played 56 games, but his 87-game second season saw that drop to .228.
The dwindling options in the left-fielder market have left the Braves looking in new places for answers. Earlier reports indicated they were considering both shifting current players around as well as trades, but a shortstop in left would certainly be among the more interesting options they're considering.
