Seminole State alum makes MLB debut

Seminole State College alumnus Dee Gordon has been called up to the majors.

The Windermere native, 23, made his Major League Baseball debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 6, scoring the Dodgers' only run in a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. He made his first start for the team on June 7, hitting 3-for-5 and recording a stolen base against the Phillies in a 6-2 Dodgers win.

In seven game appearances and six starts at shortstop, Gordon has notched 11 putouts, 13 assists and three double plays. At the plate, he has a .296 batting average with one triple, one RBI and five runs.

Gordon, the son of former reliever Tom Gordon, was selected by the Dodgers out of Seminole State in the fourth round of the 2008 MLB First-year Player Draft. His inaugural season was spent with the team's rookie ball affiliate, the Ogden Raptors.

In 2009, as a member of the Class-A affiliate Great Lakes Loons, Gordon was named the Midwest League's Most Valuable Player and Prospect of the Year as well as the Dodgers' Minor League Player of the Year. He also was selected to play in the league's mid- and post-season All-Star games.

In 2010, Gordon played for the Double-A affiliate Chattanooga Lookouts and was selected to represent the United States in the All-Star Futures Game. He also played for the Puerto Rico Baseball League's Gigantes de Carolina during the offseason.

Gordon was called up from the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate, the Albuquerque Isotopes.
