Royals | Alex Gordon quiet in debut

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 18:37:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) went hitless in three at-bats in his Cactus League debut Saturday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is working his way back from wrist surgery, but he has said he plans to be ready for Opening Day. He has a chance to meet his goal if he doesn't suffer any setbacks, and while he may start a bit slow, his all-around production makes him a solid mid-round pick.

Royals | No contract talks for Alex Gordon

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 09:41:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon could spend his last spring training with the team this year, as his contract is up after the 2015 season, and he's backing off a statement he said earlier that he would pick up his $14 million player option for the 2016 season. There have been no talks between Gordon and the team on a contract extension as opening day quickly approaches. If Gordon continues to play well and stay healthy, the Royals are unlikely to pay top dollar for his services to keep him around.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon is coming off wrist surgery, which clouds his fantasy baseball value. He has yet to play in spring games yet, either, so you'll need to watch his progress in these next few weeks. He's a steady producer across the board when healthy, though, recording double-digit home runs and stolen bases in each of the past four seasons. Look for him at a discount in the middle rounds.

Royals | Alex Gordon injury update

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 16:22:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) will continue to take batting practice on the field for approximately the next week and then start playing in minor league games toward the end of next week, said Royals manager Ned Yost Wednesday, March 11. Yost can better control Gordon's number of at-bats in the minors, he noted.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's ability to take at-bats now should allow him to shake off the offseason rust before games count. He projects to hit in the second spot in the order -- a nice spot for run production -- and he should finish the year with around 20 homers and roughly a dozen steals.
