Mariners second baseman Dee Gordon was hit on the right wrist by a J.A. Happ pitch in the third inning of Thursday night’s game against the Yankees. According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, it “looked like a bad one.”

The Mariners should pass along an update on Gordon’s status shortly. He walked in his first plate appearance and is currently batting .304/.336/.406 with three home runs, 19 RBI, 14 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases in 151 plate appearances on the season.

Dylan Moore replaced Gordon at second base in Thursday’s game. He would figure to be the short-term fill-in if Gordon needs to go on the injured list. The Mariners could consider calling up prospect Shed Long or J.P. Crawford if needed.
