Description: Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon hit his second homer of the season Saturday against Arizona.
Insight: Gordon's biggest asset is his speed (36 steals) so anytime he can muster some power it's an added bonus. The second baseman has hit just .209 over his last 28 games and .278 on the season, though with a 23.5 percent line-drive rate, a 56.1 percent ground-ball rate and a 5.0 percent infield fly-ball rate, he should have a BABIP better than .318. He's hit .565 on line drives while the league average on liners is .693 this season. If he was closer to the league average on line drives, he'd have at least five more hits and a batting average that was at least 20 points higher than .278.
