Royals | Alex Gordon starting rehab assignment

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:34:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) will likely start his rehab assignment with Class AA Northwest Arkansas Sunday, June 19, according to manager Ned Yost. Gordon will move to Class AAA Omaha late next week and will need 20 to 25 at-bats before returning.

Fantasy Tip: It's great news for the Royals that Gordon is getting closer to a return. But fantasy owners probably aren't all that interested after he had a meager .211/.319/.331 slash line with four home runs, three steals and 10 RBI in 42 games before his injury. Gordon can surely be useful in AL-only leagues, but he's merely depth in deep mixed formats when he's healthy.

Royals | Alex Gordon close to rehab assignment

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 17:24:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment later this week, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Gordon could be activated from the disabled list near the end of the month. The 32-year-old was batting just .210 with four home runs and 10 RBI in 142 at-bats prior to getting injured and is not worth stashing in shallow mixed fantasy leagues.

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:29:32 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (wrist) said the swelling is gone in his right wrist and was throwing lightly Wednesday, June 8. Gordon is aiming to take dry swings this weekend.

In a pinch, he is replaceable in shallower formats.

Royals | Alex Gordon's fracture non-surgical

Mon, 23 May 2016 16:57:22 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon's (hand) fracture is non-displaced and non-surgical, which is why he's estimated to be out three to four weeks. He'll be re-evaluated in 10 days.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon was struggling mightily prior to suffering the injury, so hopefully he's able to return to old form when he's back. In the meantime, with the perennial Gold Glove winner on the sidelines, Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando each get a boost and both are worth a look in many formats. Dyson can make a big impact with his speed, while Orlando has been absolutely raking as of late.
