Royals' Alex Gordon to play 4-5 games per week


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) When Royals outfielder Alex Gordon is activated from the disabled list, manager Ned Yost said Gordon will play four to five games per week, reports the Kansas City Star.

Gordon has been rehabbing his injured groin at Triple-A and is expected to be activated next week.

"He feels really good," Yost said. "He's running at about 90 percent, which is good. He's taking walks, fouling off pitches, getting hits. He's doing a lot of really good things. I just want to make sure that he's ready when he gets here."

The Royals have not said how many rehab games Gordon will need before returning. But with a comfortable lead in the American League Central division, the team is unlikely to rush their star outfielder.

(8/5/2015) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon was able to take batting practice Tuesday as well as some soft-toss swings Wednesday and he said he was pleased with his progress, reports MLB.com.

"The first five swings, it was a roll over to second base," Gordon said. "At first it didn't feel good, but eventually, I got back into it and was able to hit some good balls. It's been a while, but it's part of the game, being on the DL, and unfortunately I've been there for a little bit now."

Gordon is trying to recover from a groin strain, which has kept him sidelined since July 8. He added that he wants to be patient with the injury.

"It's not where I need to be as far as my leg, but even when I push it, I'm trying to listen to the trainers the best way I know," Gordon said. "I don't know how to deal with this injury; they do. It's about baby steps and not trying to get back all in one day."

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/8/2015) 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."
