Gore was sent down to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Gore earned his first at-bat of the season during Wednesday's blowout loss to the Nationals, and was demoted to Double-A Northwest Arkansas shortly after the game ended. During the season, Gore has only appeared four times as a baserunner and even though he steals nearly every time he is on base, his usage isn't good enough to be used in most fantasy formats.
Gore stole a base and scored the game-tying run in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals. Gore has yet to record a plate appearance this season, but has come in three times as a pinch runner. In those games, he has two runs scored and two stolen bases. While his usage isn't anywhere close to enough to being used in most fantasy contexts, the speedy outfielder can (and will) attempt to steal a base every time he's on.
Gore was announced Sunday as a member of the Royals' Opening Day roster, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. Gore will likely serve as the Royals' fifth outfielder for as long as Jarrod Dyson (oblique) is sidelined. He'll primary serve as a pinch runner and late-inning defensive replacement for the Royals.
Gore could make the final 25-man roster as a reserve outfielder while Jarrod Dyson is out with a strained oblique, the Kansas City Star reports. It's not clear who the Royals will keep as reserve outfielders. Paulo Orlando is expected to start in right field with Dyson out. Reymond Fuentes, Travis Snider and Whit Merrifield also are in the mix. Gore would appear to have the lowest odds among the contenders, however.
The Royals have called up four players from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. Catcher Francisco Pena , infielder Christian Colon and outfielders Cheslor Cuthbert and Terrance Gore have been added to the Royals' active roster.
