Royals' Alex Gordon: Hits 17th homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

The homer was his 17th of the year, but just his third in September; Gordon is slashing a weak .224/.298/.408 in 76 at-bats over the final month. At 32, he's headed for his worst numbers since his breakout 2011 campaign, and the Royals may already be regretting the four-year contract he signed back in January.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Sitting out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is not in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the White Sox, Josh Vernier of 610 KCSP reports.

Gordon is hitless in his past five games, and with tough left-hander Chris Sale toeing the rubber for Chicago, the 32-year-old will head to the bench for a day off. Whit Merrifield will replace him in left field for the evening.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Collects pair of knocks in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI, and a run in his return to the lineup Monday against the Twins.

After missing a game and a half with achilles soreness, Gordon came back without missing a beat Monday. While hitting just .225 on the season, Gordon has come on strong in the last month or so, going .278/.361/.519 in his last 30 games. He could be of some value for fantasy owners searching for an outfielder for the final stretch of the season.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Rejoins lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gordon (Achilles) is back in the lineup Monday against the Twins, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports. He'll play left field and bat sixth in the order.

After he experienced tightness in his Achilles during Saturday's game, Gordon was rested for Sunday's series finale with the Tigers for what appears to have been precautionary purposes. The outfielder evidently felt fine after going through warm-up drills and batting practice Monday, so he should be in store for a full slate of starts during the week. Gordon is batting .242 with seven homers, three steals, 17 RBI and 28 runs in 161 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (Achilles) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio AM reports.

Gordon's absence was expected after he battled discomfort in his Achilles during Saturday's game, but the Royals are hopeful he'll only need a day off before potentially returning to the lineup for Monday's series opener against the Twins. In Gordon's stead, Whit Merrifield will make a start in left field.
