Gordon went 1-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in a loss to the Angels on Friday. The veteran outfielder continued his revival with a double off Matt Harvey in the fourth inning. He then swiped his third bag of the year after walking in the sixth. Gordon has made it clear he's got more tricks up his sleeve, batting .290 with eight homers, 33 RBI and 28 runs scored.
Gordon went 2-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, two RBI and two runs Tuesday in the Royals' 11-5 win over the Rangers. Gordon was surprisingly involved on the basepaths late last season, going 8-for-8 on stolen-base attempts over the final two months. That activity hasn't carried over to 2019 -- he didn't even attempt a steal before Tuesday -- but Gordon has made up for it by returning to prime form at the plate. After another two-hit performance, Gordon sports a .926 OPS on the season. That figure is nearly 50 points higher than his previous career best (.878), which he established in 2011.
Gordon went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia. Gordon knocked in the game's first run in the bottom of the third inning with a single to left field, but the Phillies would respond in the fifth with six runs of their own. The veteran outfielder continues to do damage at the dish in 2019 and is slashing .296/.381/.542 with eight homers and 31 RBI over 38 games.
Gordon went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in a 5-1 victory against the Phillies on Friday. The 35-year-old is experiencing some newfound power to begin this season. From 2016-18, Gordon slugged a measly .355 and averaged 13 home runs in 476 at-bats per season. This year, he's already gone deep eight times and owns a .545 slugging percentage. It will be interesting to see if Gordon can keep this going a full season, but he's on pace to have his best offensive season since 2013. Gordon is hitting .291 with 30 RBI and 25 runs in 134 at-bats.
Gordon will sit Wednesday against the Astros. Gordon finds himself on the bench for just the third time all season. He's cooled off after his hot start, hitting just .200 over his last eight games. Terrance Gore gets the start in left field.
