    • Royals' Alex Gordon: Gets breather Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gordon is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. It's been a trying year at the plate for Gordon, but the 33-year-old is hitting a respectable .288/.356/.545 with four homers in 66 at-bats over his last 20 starts. He'll get the day off as Melky Cabrera, Paulo Orlando and Jorge Bonifacio hold down the outfield for Kansas City (from left to right).

    • Royals' Alex Gordon: Homers in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gordon went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Saturday's win over the White Sox. It's been a disastrous year for the veteran, but Gordon has found a groove over the final weeks of the season. He entered Saturday's game with a .281/.343/.500 slash line in September and is now up to four homers, eight RBI and 14 runs in 22 games this month.

    • Gordon went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Tuesday in Toronto. Gordon's eighth-inning long ball was too little too late, as it concluded the scoring in a 5-2 defeat. It did, however, get his name into the record books by eclipsing the record for total home runs hit in a major-league season at 5,694. Ironically, the 2005 second overall pick is in the midst of the worst season of his career, slashing just .209/.286/.314 with eight home runs in 137 games at age 33.

    • Royals' Alex Gordon: Clears fences Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gordon went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run Saturday during the Royals' 5-2 victory over the Twins. Gordon put on a rare power display with his sixth big fly of the year. Despite a four-game hitting streak, he remains stuck in a disappointing campaign (.203/.285/.297 in 473 plate appearances) over which he's been a majority starter chiefly because he bats left-handed and plays stout defense. If only the latter counted in standard fantasy games.

    • Royals' Alex Gordon: Heads to bench again Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Gordon is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Gordon will be on the bench for a fourth time in five games, an indication that manager Ned Yost is no longer viewing the veteran as the primary option in left field. Though he brings plenty of defensive value, Gordon's .197/.281/.283 slash line on the season has made him one of the least-productive everyday players in baseball, and it appears the Royals could be inclined to kick the tires with other options as they look to chase down a playoff berth. Jorge Bonifacio and Paolo Orlando would probably be the main beneficiaries if Gordon's phaseout continues.
