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.

Royals | Alex Gordon lands on disabled list

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:54:53 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon (hand) will be placed on the disabled list Monday, May 23, with a broken bone in his right hand. The 32-year-old sustained the injury on Sunday, May 22, when he collided with 3B Mike Moustakas in foul territory. He's expected to miss three to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's been an All-Star in each of the past three seasons, Gordon has played like anything but one thus far in 2016, as he lands on the disabled list with a woeful .211 batting average and only 10 RBI in 42 games. This will present extra playing time for both Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando, though it remains to be seen who will pick up more at-bats. Even so, both could end up being useful while Gordon is sidelined, as Dyson has topped 25 steals in four consecutive years, while Orlando has been smoking hot in his last six contests, being 12-for-22 (.545) with one homer and seven RBI over that stretch. Monitor both outfielders.

Royals | Alex Gordon resting in Game 2

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:37:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, May 18. OF Whit Merrifield is starting in left field and is hitting ninth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Merrifield was called up before the second game and will be making his major league debut in the nightcap. The outfielder has spent seven years in the minors and has never reached double-digit home runs, but he does have speed (32 stolen bases last year). He could very well be sent back down after the game, so he doesn't deserve any fantasy attention for now.

Royals | Two Royals set for big game?

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:09:47 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer and OF Alex Gordon have fared well against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello in the last five years. Hosmer is hitting .346 with two home runs and three RBI in 26 at-bats, while Gordon is batting .303 with two home runs and seven RBI in 33 at-bats against Porcello. They face Porcello Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hosmer is a must-start in seasonal leagues and is a popular daily target, too. Gordon, on the other hand, is likely being overlooked everywhere because of his slow start. He could be a nice contrarian pick this evening in DFS play.

Royals | Alex Gordon on seven-game run

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:41:33 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Alex Gordon went 1-for-4 with a double, run scored and two strikeouts Tuesday, April 10, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has hit safely in seven consecutive games. He is hitting .333 (8-for-24) with four runs scored and two RBIs. He remains an obvious must-start across all fantasy formats, although it would be nice if he added a few more RBIs to go along with the hits.

Royals | Mike Moustakas likely to bat second

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 08:53:15 -0800

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas and OF Alex Gordon continue to battle for the No. 2 spot in the batting order during spring training. However, manager Ned Yost admitted that Moustakas "probably" has the edge in the composition.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas hit .280 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 364 at-bats out of the No. 2 hole last season, while Gordon hit .371 with a home run and nine RBIs in 35 at-bats. The loser of the competition will hit sixth in the batting order.

Royals | No. 2 spot in KC lineup up for grabs

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 08:23:49 -0800

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas and OF Alex Gordon are the two most likely candidates to bat second in the team's batting order this season, according to manager Ned Yost. The player that does not win the competition for the No. 2 spot will wind up batting sixth, behind OF Lorenzo Cain, 1B Eric Hosmer and DH Kendrys Morales.

Fantasy Tip: Moustakas hit .280 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 408 at-bats as the No. 2 hitter in 2015, while Gordon hit .371 with one home run and seven RBIs in 35 at-bats in that spot. Don't be surprised if the left-handed-hitting Moustakas occupies the spot versus right-handers, while the right-handed-hitting Gordon does the same against southpaws. Both players make solid starting options in all fantasy formats.
