      Royals' Alex Gordon: Returns to KC on four-year deal

      Gordon signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Royals on Wednesday, Ken Rosental of Fox Sports reports. Gordon was reportedly seeking around $20 million per year, but took a small discount to stay with the defending champs. He should once again slot back into left field for the club, and will look to stay healthy following a season in which he managed just 104 games. Despite missing a good portion of the campaign, the 31-year-old outfielder finished with 13 home runs and 48 RBI while posting a .271/.377/.432 batting line.

      Alex Gordon: Turns down qualifying offer

      Gordon declined his qualifying offer from the Royals on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Gordon wasn't expected to accept the offer after declining his player option for the 2016 season, but there's still a chance he signs back on with the defending World Series champions. If he does't, the Royals will receive a draft pick as compensation, as Gordon should generate interest after a year in which he slashed .271/.377/.432 and hit 13 homers.

      Alex Gordon: Receives qualifying offer

      Gordon was tendered a qualifying offer from the Royals on Thursday. There was zero chance of the Royals not attaching draft compensation to one of their franchise's most beloved players. Fortunately for Gordon, his profile as a free agent is high enough that this shouldn't make a significant impact on his ability to find a team.

      Royals' Alex Gordon: Declines 2016 player option

      Gordon has declined his 2016 player option and will become a free agent. Gordon posted a .836 OPS in a postseason that showcased his late-game heroics, and he'll attempt to carry that momentum into the offseason in search of a large contract. The 31-year-old has posted a batting average of .265 or greater in every season since 2011, and can provide any potential suitor with reliable power numbers while sprinkling in a bit of speed. If he does change destinations, the power numbers could be poised to rise, as he won't be playing half his games within the pitcher-friendly confines of Kauffman Stadium.

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

      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."

      Royals LF Alex Gordon (groin) to begin rehab assignment Sunday

      Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that All-Star left fielder Alex Gordon will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Sunday, according to The Kansas City Star. Gordon suffered a Grade 2 strain during a game in early July and has been on the DL ever since. 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.
