Royals hoping to keep LF Gordon, C Perez long-term
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Royals are hoping to be able to keep left fielder Alex Gordon with the team long-term, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Gordon currently has a player option for 2016, valued at $13.25 million, though expecations are he will decline the option and look to secure a bigger contract.

Gordon, a Nebraska-native, is currently batting .303 with three home runs and 13 RBI in his first 19 games of the 2015 season. 

The Royals are also considering a contract extension for catcher Salvador Perez, who is currently signed through 2016 (with club options for 17-19). Though as Heyman notes, they will likely wait until the offseason to begin theoe discussions.

Colon in, Escobar out at shortstop for Royals on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Perhaps unsurpisingly, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Tigers. Escobar left Wednesday's game against the Indians after being hit by a pitch in the face and has been diagnosed with a left cheek contusion.

Christian Colon made the start at shortstop on Thursday. Colon has had limited playing time in 2015 and is hitting .269 (7 for 26) with a double and a stolen base.

Left fielder Alex Gordon will move up to the leadoff spot in the lineup for the first time this season. Escobar has been the Royals' leadoff hitter in all but two games in 2015. Gordon is currently ranked ninth in the American League with a .413 on-base percentage. 

Escobar is hoping to return to the Royals lineup on Friday or Saturday, according to the Kansas City Star
