Alex Gordon throwing for Royals, could hit in a week
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/25/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon has started a throwing program, as he recovers from a groin strain that landed him on the disabled list. He should start hitting within seven-to-10 days.
"It's feeling a lot better," Gordon told MLB.com. "I'm able to do some throwing now and what they've told me is that I could start hitting toward the end of the next road trip."
Royals OF Alex Gordon lands on DL, out eight weeks
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/9/15) The Royals placed outfielder Alex Gordon on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, reports MLB.com.
Gordon sustained a left groin strain during Wednesday's win over the Rays and he is expected to miss eight weeks, reports The Kansas City Star. The injury will not require surgery.
"You can't say definitely he will be playing in eight weeks," manager Ned Yost said. "If he heals faster, it will be sooner. But in our timetable in our minds, it will be eight weeks."
Pitcher Brandon Finnegan will take Gordon's place on the roster. Over his last 17 games, Gordon was hitting .315 with three home runs and eight RBI.
Royals LF Alex Gordon not in lineup Thursday vs. Rays

|(7/9/15) Royals left fielder Alex Gordon was not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Rays after leaving Wednesday's game due to a left groin strain. Jarrod Dyson started in Gordon's absence Thursday.
The All-Star outfielder was hurt a day after going 7 for 9 with one double, one home run and six RBI during a doubleheader. Gordon has made the All-Star team the last three seasons (2013-15).
Royals OF Alex Gordon leaves game after crashing into wall
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/8/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon had to be carted off the field during Wednesday's game against the Rays after he crashed into the outfield wall, the team announced via Twitter.
It appeared as if Gordon's left leg gave out before he made contact with the outfield wall. He remained on the ground before a cart came and he was taken off the field.
"He heard it pop, which isn't good," manager Ned Yost said, per Fox Sports. "The doctors didn't think it detached from the bone, which is a good thing. But it kind of took the wind out of the sails."
The team announced that he suffered a left groin strain and would undergo an MRI on Wednesday night.
Gordon was 0 for 1 with a walk prior to leaving the game.
Royals LF Alex Gordon totals seven hits, six RBI in doubleheader
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/8/15) Royals All-Star left fielder Alex Gordon had quite the performance during a doubleheader sweep of ther Rays on Tuesday.
After homering and going 3 for 4 in a 9-5 win in the first game, Gordon came back to tally four hits and four RBI in a 7-1 win in the nightcap.
Gordon had a single in the third inning, an RBI single in the fifth inning, an RBI single in the sixth inning and a two-RBI double in the eighth inning.
"I just felt comfortable, my swing felt more loose today, a lot more freer," said Gordon, who was plunked on the right hand in the doubleheader opener, but X-rays came back negative, per MLB.com. "I was just seeing the ball a lot better, letting it get deep and driving the ball the other way, which I feel like I haven't been doing as much this year."
Gordon has been on an outstanding run for the last month. He has a .337/.454/.523/.977 slash line in his last 27 games. He has one double, five home runs, 14 RBI, 10 runs, 18 walks and 22 strikeouts in that span.
|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.
