The Dodgers are telling teams that Dee Gordon is available

UPDATE: According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi said this evening that Gordon is not being shopped.

6:23 p.m. ET: Interesting note here from Joel Sherman of the New York Post, who writes that the Dodgers are telling teams that second baseman Dee Gordon is available.

Gordon is coming off a solid season in which he batted .289/.326/.378 over 148 games while leading the majors with 64 stolen bases. However, he had a miserable 47/4 K/BB ratio during the second half. It doesn’t sound like the Dodgers are desperately trying to move him -- remember, they also have a shortstop vacancy to fill now that Hanley Ramirez is in Boston -- but it’s possible that the new front office believes that this would be a good time to sell high on him. He’s under team control through 2018.

As Sherman notes, the Dodgers have Alex Guerrero and Erisbel Arruebarrena as in-house alternates if they end up moving Gordon. Justin Turner and Darwin Barney are also in place.
