Royals' Alex Gordon: Resting in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Rosell Herrera will fill in for Gordon in the season finale. Gordon has enjoyed a minor renaissance over the final two months, batting a palatable .254 while chipping in more than half of his total home runs (seven of 13) and steals (eight of 12) on the season. The 34-year-old is an odd fit on a Kansas City club in the midst of a lengthy rebuild, but unless he's dealt this winter, Gordon should retain an everyday role in 2019, which marks the final year of his contract.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Swats 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI In Wednesday's win over the Reds.

Gordon poked a run-scoring single in the third inning to put the Royals up 2-1 before icing the victory with his solo homer in seventh frame. The outfielder is now hitting .275/.343/.462 with three homers and three stolen bases through 23 games this month, bringing his season slash to .246/.326/.374 to go with 13 homers, 12 stolen bases and 53 RBI through 138 games.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Lines laser for homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

His laser left the yard quickly as he pulled a down-and-in breaking pitch from right-hander Jordan Zimmermann over the right-field fence. Prior to Saturday's action, Gordon had put together a .295 average with seven doubles and 14 RBI in 16 games since moving to the three hole. The 34-year-old's season-long .246/.327/.371 slash line -- with 12 homers and 51 RBI -- doesn't look all that impressive overall, but he's scorched opposing pitching lately to elevate it to that level and should remain in most fantasy lineups while he's on a tear.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Doubles, plates two vs. Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-6 loss to Pittsburgh.

Gordon knocked in a run during the third inning on a double to right field, and he brought home another in the fifth on a single. Following Monday's series opener, the 34-year-old outfielder has pieced together a modest four-game hitting streak, going 7-for-17 with three doubles and seven RBI over that stretch. Gordon owns a .245/.328/.365 batting line through 131 games this season.
