by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Gordon has been steady and productive at the plate and a premier defender. His market value might decrease if he continues to hit as he has recently, but that is highly unlikely given his track record. He is on a 5-for-29 slide without a multi-hit game since May 15.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals hoping to keep LF Gordon, C Perez long-term


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Colon in, Escobar out at shortstop for Royals on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4/30/2015) Perhaps unsurpisingly, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Tigers. Escobar left Wednesday's game against the Indians after being hit by a pitch in the face and has been diagnosed with a left cheek contusion.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon may rest during days game this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Royals outfielder Alex Gordon may be given some time off during day games this season to rest his injured wrist, reports the Kansas City Star. Manager Ned Yost said Wednesday it is likely Gordon will be rested Thursday to put less pressure on the recovering wrist injury.

"You just don't want to dig a hole for him that’s going to take three or four days to dig out," Yost said.

He also indicated Paulo Orlando would likely fill in for Gordon in the lineup. Yost wants Gordon to have at least 24 hours to recover from a game before inserting him in the lineup the next day.

"He looks fine," Yost said. "He's just got to get his timing and everything down. He's getting better and better with it all the time. My only focus is the strength of that wrist, and not getting in too big a hole where he’s got to sit two or three days."
