"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 Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon, who had surgery on his right wrist in December, remains on track to be ready for the start of the season, according to MLB.com.

"We don't have a progression. It's just day by day," Gordon said. "After we swung it today, we talked about how we are going to approach it [Saturday], and I think that's how we are doing it right now. If it was during the season, obviously it would be pushing it forward a lot quicker, but we are just taking it slow and trying to be smart about it."

"I had about 20 or 30 swings, and it felt great," Gordon said. "As long as it doesn't come back with any pain or suffering tonight, I'll probably have a little soft-toss. It's pretty exciting. Honestly, it is. That's not a joke.

"I turned it loose the last 10 swings [Friday], and it almost felt like the more I turned it loose, the better it got. That's a good sign that most of the discomfort, if there is any, comes from lack of swings and being stiff."
