MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon is scheduled to play in his first minor league rehab game on Sunday afternoon with High-A Jupiter and could be cleared to return from the disabled list on Tuesday if all goes well.
“It’s possible, yes,” Marlins manager Dan Jennings told reporters on Saturday night. “The batting practices have gone very well. He’s not feeling any discomfort. Now we just have got to get him into a game, and see how that feels to swing it live.”
Gordon has been sidelined since July 11 with a dislocated left thumb. The 27-year-old speedster is batting .338/.359/.413 with 33 stolen bases over 84 games in his first season with the Fish.
