Royals' Yost: Gordon plays in third straight game, 'feeling great'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon, who missed the first few weeks of spring games coming off December wrist surgery, started a third straight game Monday against the Giants, per MLB.com.
"It's really expected," manager Ned Yost said. "[Gordon is] feeling great. I wouldn't say I'm encouraged that he's able to play three straight games, because I expected it. Let's just say I'm glad he's in the lineup again."
Gordon went 1 for 6 (.167) with one RBI, two strikeouts and one stolen base in his first two spring games.
Royals outfielder Alex Gordon goes 0 for 3 in spring debut
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon didn't do much in his first game of spring training Saturday, going 0 for 3, but he was able to come out of the appearance unscathed. Gordon, who is recovering from offseason wrist surgery, was mostly happy just to be back on the field, reports MLB.com.
"It was good," Gordon said. "Good to get back in that game atmosphere. I really hadn't been in the dugout pretty much for all of Spring Training. I didn't rehab during the games. So just to be down there with the guys, get the adrenaline going, and to get that game action was fun."
Manager Ned Yost was happy he got through it.
"I thought he did fine," Yost said. "He got through it … hit the ball hard in his second at-bat, and just got back into the swing of playing."
Gordon isn't concerned with Opening Day just yet.
"Really, a lot of it's mental. So if I'm thinking I'm not ready for Opening Day, I won't be ready. I felt good, I felt comfortable and I felt on track. As long as I feel like that, that's really all that matters."

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut on Saturday, according to the Kansas City Star. He is working his way back from offseason wrist surgery in December. Last season, he produced a .266/.351/.432 with 19 homers and 74 RBI over 563 at-bats.
Royals outfielder Alex Gordon feeling good after batting practice
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon was able to face live batting practice for the first time in spring training Monday after wrist surgery in December.
"It was an adjustment, catching up to the speed again," Gordon said to MLB.com. "I thought it went pretty well.
"It usually takes me awhile to get my timing down in spring anyway, so I knew it would be a slow process. I thought I had a couple of good swings."
Gordon will continue to take batting practice throughout the week and may participate in minor league intrasquad scrimmages as soon as Tuesday.
Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer, Alex Rios battling for two-spot in Royals' order
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/15/15) Royals manager Ned Yost is considering three players for the number-two spot in the batting order.
Outfielders Alex Gordon, Alex Rios and infielder Eric Hosmer are all being considered, according to MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan.
Hosmer is hitting .316 this spring. Rios is hitting .368 with a .400 OBP. Gordon is recovering from a wrist injury and has yet to appear in a game.
|2014 summary: A couple of seasons ago, it looked like Alex Gordon could be a mainstay among the top 10 outfielders in points leagues due to his doubles prowess, but for the second season in a row, he failed to top 35 doubles. Those two-baggers have turned into outs, so Gordon's batting average has suffered as well, yet he has been enough of a run producer to remain among the top 25 outfielders in all standard formats.
Playing time status: Gordon has played at least 150 games in four straight seasons, and the Royals will need to have his bat and glove in the lineup as often as possible. His offseason wrist surgery should not delay his readiness for spring training, and playing time should not be an issue.
2015 outlook: Gordon is still an above-average hitter on flyballs in play, but no longer ridiculously above-average. That makes him a safe bet to hit 30-plus doubles, but not 40-plus. With moderate power and stolen base potential, Gordon is essentially the poor man's Hunter Pence. Though he doesn't stand out in any category, he's still a solid mid-round acquisition.
