Alex Gordon throwing for Royals, could hit in a week
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

"It's feeling a lot better," Gordon told MLB.com. "I'm able to do some throwing now and what they've told me is that I could start hitting toward the end of the next road trip."

Royals OF Alex Gordon lands on DL, out eight weeks
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Royals placed outfielder Alex Gordon on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, reports MLB.com.

Gordon sustained a left groin strain during Wednesday's win over the Rays and he is expected to miss eight weeks, reports The Kansas City Star. The injury will not require surgery

"You can't say definitely he will be playing in eight weeks," manager Ned Yost said. "If he heals faster, it will be sooner. But in our timetable in our minds, it will be eight weeks."

Pitcher Brandon Finnegan will take Gordon's place on the roster. Over his last 17 games, Gordon was hitting .315 with three home runs and eight RBI.

Royals OF Alex Gordon leaves game after crashing into wall
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

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."

The team announced that he suffered a left groin strain and would undergo an MRI on Wednesday night.

Gordon was 0 for 1 with a walk prior to leaving the game.

Royals LF Alex Gordon totals seven hits, six RBI in doubleheader
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals All-Star left fielder Alex Gordon had quite the performance during a doubleheader sweep of ther Rays on Tuesday. 

After homering and going 3 for 4 in a 9-5 win in the first game, Gordon came back to tally four hits and four RBI in a 7-1 win in the nightcap.

Gordon had a single in the third inning, an RBI single in the fifth inning, an RBI single in the sixth inning and a two-RBI double in the eighth inning. 

"I just felt comfortable, my swing felt more loose today, a lot more freer," said Gordon, who was plunked on the right hand in the doubleheader opener, but X-rays came back negative, per MLB.com. "I was just seeing the ball a lot better, letting it get deep and driving the ball the other way, which I feel like I haven't been doing as much this year."

Gordon has been on an outstanding run for the last month. He has a .337/.454/.523/.977 slash line in his last 27 games. He has one double, five home runs, 14 RBI, 10 runs, 18 walks and 22 strikeouts in that span.
