Royals' Yost on Alex Gordon: 'He's still getting his timing down'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost said Monday he's not concerned with the slow spring start of outfielder Alex Gordon, MLB.com reports.

"He's still getting his timing down," Yost said. "He'll be fine. The big thing is he's not hurting. He's sore a little sometimes, but generally OK."

Gordon is working his way back from December surgery on his right wrist. He's a candidate to receive at least a few off-days during the first month of the season in order to give the wrist time to properly recover.

"We'll have to go day to day with him and see how he feels," Yost said. "We do have two off-days the first two weeks. And we'll just see after that. I know one day he came in real sore recently and I thought about banging him [from the lineup] but he went to the cage and it loosened up, and we put him in. It's been kind of like that."

Gordon is just 3 for 24 this spring.

Royals' Yost: Gordon plays in third straight game, 'feeling great'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon, who missed the first few weeks of spring games coming off December wrist surgery, started a third straight game Monday against the Giants, per MLB.com.

"It's really expected," manager Ned Yost said. "[Gordon is] feeling great. I wouldn't say I'm encouraged that he's able to play three straight games, because I expected it. Let's just say I'm glad he's in the lineup again."

Gordon went 1 for 6 (.167) with one RBI, two strikeouts and one stolen base in his first two spring games.

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon goes 0 for 3 in spring debut
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon didn't do much in his first game of spring training Saturday, going 0 for 3, but he was able to come out of the appearance unscathed. Gordon, who is recovering from offseason wrist surgery, was mostly happy just to be back on the field, reports MLB.com.

"It was good," Gordon said. "Good to get back in that game atmosphere. I really hadn't been in the dugout pretty much for all of Spring Training. I didn't rehab during the games. So just to be down there with the guys, get the adrenaline going, and to get that game action was fun."

Manager Ned Yost was happy he got through it.

"I thought he did fine," Yost said. "He got through it … hit the ball hard in his second at-bat, and just got back into the swing of playing."

Gordon isn't concerned with Opening Day just yet.

"Really, a lot of it's mental. So if I'm thinking I'm not ready for Opening Day, I won't be ready. I felt good, I felt comfortable and I felt on track. As long as I feel like that, that's really all that matters."

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon feeling good after batting practice
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon was able to face live batting practice for the first time in spring training Monday after wrist surgery in December. 

"It was an adjustment, catching up to the speed again," Gordon said to MLB.com. "I thought it went pretty well.

"It usually takes me awhile to get my timing down in spring anyway, so I knew it would be a slow process. I thought I had a couple of good swings."

Gordon will continue to take batting practice throughout the week and may participate in minor league intrasquad scrimmages as soon as Tuesday.
