Minnesota Twins: Nick Gordon’s emergence means the end of La Tortuga

After spending over five seasons in the minor leagues, Nick Gordon has finally made it to the big leagues for the Minnesota Twins and with 65 games already in the books, it looks more and more like he’s going to be a key piece of the 2022 team.

Gordon was drafted 5th overall all the way back in 2014, and the more time he spent in the minors, the clearer and clearer it became that he would never really be an everyday starter at either of his two main positions (second base and shortstop). Luis Arraez’s emergence as a prospect made that even more clear.
