Alex Gordon (LF)

Kansas City Royals - 89% owned

(?)
Bats: L, Throws: R

In an 8-1 Royals win over the Tigers, Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with one run and two RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Gordon is now hitting .303 and sports a .925 OPS (to go along with three home runs, 13 RBI, nine runs and a .425 OBP). The stolen bases haven't come yet, but be patient. It'll only be an added bonus once that happens too, which it should. Continue to start him in all leagues, unless you have other players to also consider that are top 70 ECR (Expert Consensus Ranking) fantasy players.

Kansas City outfielder Alex Gordon went 1-for-4 with one run scored in a 7-5 Royals loss to the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: Alex Gordon is currently batting .290 with 9 runs, 3 home runs and 11 runs batted in, but has yet to steal a single base. While those number may not blow anyone away, his OBP (.413) and OPS (.913) numbers should and should give fantasy owners confidence in owning him and starting him in all fantasy leagues right now.

Fantasy Impact: With many of the Royals exceeding even the level that took them to the post-season, Alex Gordon is struggled to get going (1-for-13). He will attempt to kick start his season on Sunday against CJ Wilson.

Alex Gordon back on track

Alex Gordon hit his first home run of the spring and had three hits in the Royals 11-7 victory over the Rangers. After a late start due off season surgery, Gordon has logged a few extra innings in games like these to get ready for the season.

Fantasy Impact: This is a good sign for fantasy players as Gordon had gotten off to a slow start this spring. All signs point to him starting the season ready to put up solid numbers.

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.
