Royals' Alex Gordon: Smashes grand slam as heating trend continues
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon homered for the third straight day Thursday, this time socking a fourth-inning grand slam in an 8-2 win over Minnesota.

He's also hit safely in nine straight and scored a run in seven straight, lifting his average 20 points in the process. Gordon's season stats are still ugly but he seems to have finally returned to form for the back end of an injury-marred campaign and thus is worth deploying in fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

Royals' Alex Gordon: August turnaround
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon is hitting .269/.333/.423 so far in August after coming into the month hitting .206/.313/.335.

Most of the 32-year-old's improvement can be attributed to his batting average on balls in play jumping from .272 to .387. Although unconfirmed, Gordon's early-season struggles could stem from a broken bone in his right hand that sent him to the DL on May 23.

Royals' Alex Gordon: On base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Monday's 3-1 win over the Tigers.

Gordon has lacked power with just 20 extra-base hits all season, but has come on with four multi-hit games during his current six-game hitting streak. The veteran still has a long way to go to make up for a pitiful .216/.317/.341 line through 86 games.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Ends power outage with two-run shot Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Rays.

Gordon hadn't homered since July 10, and was just 3-for-24 on the current road trip when he went deep off Drew Smyly in the fourth for the Royals only offense of the day. The outfielder's 10th MLB season has been a disaster so far. Through 262 at-bats, Gordon holds career-worst marks in strikeout rate and isolated power. Over the last three seasons, his numbers have dipped post All-Star break, so counting on him to fix those career-worst marks down the stretch of 2016 might be a long shot.
