Mariners’ second baseman Dee Gordon was seen fielding ground balls before the team’s series opener with the Twins. This is major news for the Mariners, a team who was without Gordon after he suffered a broken toe injury.In regards to the injury, team manager Scott Servais mentioned, “He won't do any hard running or anything for a few days. But he's feeling better.” Gordon has been wearing a walking boot recently in order to keep pressure off of his right foot. He initially suffered the injury after being hit by a foul ball; the injury was aggravated when he attempted to make a diving catch of a bloop single in shallow right field.

What is a Broken Toe?
A broken toe occurs when one or more of the toe bones of the foot are broken after an injury. Injuries such as stubbing your toe or dropping a heavy object on it may cause a toe fracture.
Symptoms of a Broken Toe
Although the injured toe should be monitored daily, it is especially important to have a podiatrist look at your toe if you have severe symptoms. Some of these symptoms include: worsening or new pain that is not relieved with medication, sores, redness, or open wounds near the toe.
