Fantasy Impact:

An official announcement from the Royals is expected soon. Gordon was the second overall pick in the 2005 draft and wound up spending his entire career in Kansas City. A third baseman coming up, Gordon eventually became one of the best defensive outfielders in baseball. He was part of the Royals' 2015 World Series title and made three All-Star teams during his career. Additionally, he won seven Gold Glove awards. From 2011-14 Gordon accumulated the sixth most wins above replacement among position players, according to Baseball-Reference.
