Royals' Alex Gordon: Sidelined with back injury

Gordon is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers due to a compressed nerve in his back, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gordon sustained the injury when he was hit by a pitch during Wednesday's contest. It sounds like the outfielder's absence is precautionary, so consider him day-to-day ahead of Friday's series opener in Minnesota.
