    Gordon started nine games and posted a 2.77 ERA this spring for Central Florida, but his season was cut short with Tommy John surgery. He’s a 6-foot-4, 225-pound pitchability lefthander who sits in the 88-89 mph range and touches 92 at best. There’s a bit of funk to his delivery and arm slot that helps his stuff play up, but his secondaries are fringy at the moment. He’s been a productive collegiate pitcher in his time with Central Florida (though it’s just 78.1 innings) with a career ERA of 2.64, an 11.0 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9.
