Royals' Alex Gordon: Blasts second homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Gordon went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs Sunday against the Orioles.

Gordon's second blast of the season tied the contest at one in the fourth inning in a game the team would go on to win. The veteran will hope that he warms up along with the weather in May, as his slash line sits at.246/.352/.377.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Goes yard for first time in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Gordon hit his first homer of the year as part of a 2-for-4 effort Wednesday against Detroit.

He and Salvador Perez went back-to-back in an attempt to make a ninth-inning comeback, but the Kansas City Royals ended up falling a run short. It's been a tough start to the year for Gordon, who had just two extra-base hits (both doubles) in his first 45 at-bats. Never a truly prolific whiffer in the course of his career, Gordon has struck out at least once in all 14 of the Royals' games this season, giving him a startling 37.5 percent strikeout rate that ranks among the worst in all of baseball.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Scores twice in Tuesday's win over Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon went 0-for-2 with two walks and two runs while striking out once during a win over the Tigers on Tuesday.

Gordon is batting .222/.327/.267 in 45 at-bats in the early going this season. The real point of concern lies with his 38.5 percent strikeout rate. Gordon will likely regress to his norm (the worst strikeout percentage he's had in the majors is 22.8 percent, which occurred during his rookie season in 2007), but it is a stat for fantasy owners to keep their eyes on.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Having strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Gordon went 1-for-3 in Saturday's split squad spring win over Seattle. He's hitting .344 (11-for-32) with three home runs this spring.

After signing a four-year, $72 million contract extension in January, Gordon looks ready for another productive season. He's healthy after playing in just 104 games in 2015, largely due to a groin injury suffered in July.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Returns to KC on four-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alex Gordon signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Kansas City 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.
