|Alex Gordon won't play in All-Star game |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon said he will make the trip to the All-Star game, but he will not play due to a wrist injury, according to FOX Sports Kansas City. He won't go on the disabled list as of now, but he hopes to be back in the lineup after the All-Star break.
|Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas sidelined again Thursday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon (wrist) and third baseman Mike Moustakas (illness) were both held out of the starting lineup Thursday vs. Detroit. It was the second straight game both players were unable to start.
|Alex Gordon finished among the best Fantasy outfielders in 2013 despite having an uneven year. Gordon got off to a promising start, batting .329 with a .371 on-base percentage, .486 slugging percentage, .857 OPS, two triples, six home runs, 12 doubles, 31 RBI and 34 runs through the first two months last season. Unfortunately, Gordon's numbers the rest of the way didn't look as impressive. He hit just .233 with a .306 on-base percentage, .388 slugging percentage and .694 OPS in his final 104 games. He did manage 14 home runs, 15 doubles, 50 RBI and 56 runs in that span, but clearly Gordon struggled to match the consistency he showed in the first two months. While Gordon finished with 20 home runs and 81 RBI in 2013, his batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and OPS all declined for a second straight season. Even with his up-and-down year, Gordon finished as the 13th-highest scoring Fantasy outfielder in Head-to-Head formats and the 22nd-ranked outfielder in Rotisserie formats. Unless you really think Gordon's declining slash line is a serious alarm for concern, he remains a viable mid-round Fantasy pick in mixed leagues.
