Royals' Alex Gordon: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is not in the lineup for Wednesday's matinee against the Red Sox, 610 Sports Radio - Kansas City reports.

Gordon has played in 12 consecutive games, but is just 1-for-13 with six strikeouts over the past four contests, so he'll get a routine day to clear his head. Whit Merrifield moves to left field while Ramon Torres gets the start at second base.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Adjustments beginning to bear fruit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon's recent turnaround is the result of a mechanical adjustment to his swing, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports

As recently as June 2, Gordon sat at .172 with no home runs and nine RBI. He hadn't even hit a double in almost a month, and was slugging just .202 at the time. That's when Royals hitting coach Dale Sveum suggested Gordon's load was off. "You have to go back to go forward, at least with any power," Sveum said. "He was getting to his front side with no power behind his swing." The outfielder made adjustments, and as a result, has since looked like the guy who's hit 100-plus homers over the past six seasons. In his last nine games before Friday, Gordon is hitting .313 while slugging at .719. The 33-year-old has four doubles and three home runs in that span.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Homers against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 3-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Angels.

This season has been a rough go for the former three-time All-Star, but he now has three home runs in his last eight games after not hitting one for the entire season before June 6. With his batting average now at .195, Gordon is the closest to getting above .200 for the first since April 20, when it was .197. In spite of his struggles at the plate, Gordon has remained as Kansas City's predominant left fielder.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Gets night off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After finally delivering his first home run of the season Tuesday, Gordon will hit the bench following a string of 11 consecutive starts. Whit Merrifield will move over from the keystone to left field to cover defensively for Gordon while the newly recalled Ramon Torres picks up a start at second base.
