Royals' Alex Gordon: One base short of cycle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and three RBI in Friday's 8-1 win over Cleveland.

The veteran outfielder remains a bright spot in the Royals' lineup. Gordon is now slashing .390/.491/.732 through 12 games with three homers, 12 runs and 13 RBI, and he's also showing excellent plate discipline with a 7:5 BB:K. He hasn't posted an OPS over .700 since 2015, so this hot streak could turn ice cold in a hurry, but enjoy the surprising production while it lasts.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Gets breather Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

Gordon is off to a strong start to the season, hitting .313/.442/.531 with two homers, 10 RBI and a 6:4 BB:K through 10 games. The veteran outfielder will sit for the first time Wednesday, with Terrance Gore starting in left field and hitting ninth in his place.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Twins.

His three-run shot off Kyle Gibson in the fifth inning, Gordon's first homer of the year, gave the Royals a 6-3 lead that the bullpen would squander. The veteran outfielder had only one hit in 11 at-bats coming into Wednesday -- although he had scored a surprising six runs thanks to three walks and three HBP -- and his career trajectory suggests performances like this one could be few and far between in 2019.

Royals' Alex Gordon: In Opening Day lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (calf) is in the lineup for the Royals' Opening Day matchup with the White Sox.

Gordon missed the Royals' last couple spring games due to a sore calf, but manager Ned Yost expected him to be in the Opening Day lineup, and it turns out he will do just that. Gordon will man left field and hit third against White Sox starter Carlos Rodon.

Royals' Alex Gordon: Should be ready for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Gordon likely won't play in the Royals' final two spring contests, but indicated the outfielder would be ready to go for the Opening Day game March 28 versus the White Sox, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gordon exited Friday's 15-3 win over the Giants with left calf tightness, but felt fine upon reporting back to camp Saturday. Yost described the calf issue as more of a cramp than a true injury, so Gordon shouldn't need more than a couple days of rest to remedy the matter. Gordon is slated to open the season as the Royals' everyday left fielder and could be a sneaky source of counting stats in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats after chipping in 13 home runs and 12 steals in 2018.
