After passing the final hurdle of taking live batting practice, Alex Gordon is set for his spring debut on Saturday. With off season wrist surgery behind him, this marks the return of a vital part of the Royals offense and defense. (Source: The Kansas City Star)

Fantasy Impact: Alex Gordon has put up solid fantasy numbers over the past four years and should be set to do the same in 2015. The only question will be is if two weeks is enough time to get into mid-season form. His status will need to be monitored at the start of the season.

Alex Gordon still has a couple hurdles to clear, but he's getting closer to joining his teammates on the field in Arizona. According to the Kansas City Star, Gordon could be on the field taking batting practice as soon as next Tuesday. (Source: Kansas City Star)

Fantasy Impact: If all goes as planned, Gordon should only miss a week or two of Cactus League games. Alex is a workout warrior, so until you hear something differently, I would expect him to be 100% by Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon projects to be a solid second or third OF option on fantasy teams. Zeile Consensus Projections have Gordon slashing .268/.338/.429 with 18 HR, 80 RBI, and 10 SB. Although the low average might hurt, Gordon is crucial to the Royals lineup and gets solid numbers in every other category.
