|(4/16/15) Royals left fielder Alex Gordon was given the day off against Twins southpaw Tommy Milone on Thursday.
Gordon, who underwent wrist surgery in December, is off to a slow start this season, hitting .150 (3 for 20) with three walks and three RBI in six games. He is a career .252 hitter against left-handers. Paulo Orlando got the start in his place and will hit in the No. 7 spot.
LF Gordon not in starting lineup for Royals, Orlando gets nod
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) Left fielder Alex Gordon, who is off to a slow start this season, is not in the starting lineup for the Royals on Sunday, with Paulo Orlando sliding into his spot, per the Kansas City Star.
Gordon is just 1 for 13 with two walks in four games this season, after undergoing offseason wrist surgery. Orlando has started one other game this season and has one hit in three at-bats.
The Royals (+105) are slight underdogs in the series finale against the Angels.
Royals' Alex Gordon has one hit in first four games
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon is just 1 for 13 with two walks in four games this season.
Gordon underwent wrist surgery in December, but he's also been no stranger to slow starts, MLB.com reports.
"He got off to a slow start last year, too, with a good wrist," manager Ned Yost said.
Gordon finished last season with a .266/.351/.432 line along with 19 home runs and 74 RBI.
Royals get Alex Gordon back in lineup
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) After taking Thursday off, Royals outfielder Alex Gordon has returned to the starting lineup.
Gordon will hit sixth against the Angels Friday night. The plan is to rest him during day games so he can still recover from an injured wrist, which is why he didn't play Thursday against the White Sox.
With Gordon in the lineup, Paulo Orlando moves to the bench. Gordon started the season 1 for 6 with two RBI and two walks.
|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.
