A season after serving a suspension for PED use, Dee Gordon could be on the move.

The Marlins “would surely part with” their starting second baseman should they receive the opportunity, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.

Gordon, 29, has been unable to match the success he had when he was named an All-Star in 2015. Over 42 games this season, he’s hit .263/.319/.322 with six RBIs.

Gordon appeared in just 79 games last season after serving the suspension, which was notable because the team was pursuing one of the two National League Wild Card spots.

Given the fact that he is signed through 2020, it might be challenging to move Gordon this summer. There also might not be many teams interested.

Should the Marlins trade Gordon, Derek Dietrich or Miguel Rojas (when healthy) would likely be the favorites to start at second base. However, a deal is probably unlikely unless Gordon thrives offensively and the Marlins include cash in a deal.
