Gordon, who was placed on the 15-day DL Thursday with a Grade 3 left groin strain, is expected to miss eight weeks.

This is the timetable the Royals are offering, but considering Lorenzo Cain missed three months with the same injury in 2012, Gordon could very easily miss the rest of the regular season. Look for the Royals to trade for Gordon's replacement and for Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando to fill-in in left field for now.

Gordon (strained left groin muscle) was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday.

The Royals already said that Gordon could be out for months, so this comes as no surprise. Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando will see heavy playing time this summer as a result of Gordon's absence. In shallower leagues without DL spot, it makes sense to start looking at replacement options for Gordon.

Gordon (groin) could be out for a few months, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Gordon reportedly heard a "pop" in his groin muscle, but trainers said the muscle was not detached from the bone. While Gordon is out, manager Ned Yost said Jarrod Dyson and Paulo Orlando will hold a platoon situation with Dyson facing right-handed pitchers and Orlando facing the lefties. Gordon will undergo an MRI Thursday to reveal exactly how long he could be out.

Gordon left the game with a left groin strain, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. The Royals announced that Gordon will undergo an MRI on Wednesday night.

The team has announced that the injury that caused Gordon to be carted off the field is a groin strain, which is a far better prognosis than the initial looks of the play. Kansas City has not announced the severity of the strain nor the length of time Gordon will miss, but it appears Gordon may have avoided a major injury. Still, the team's announcement came shortly after the injury occurred, so there should be more information regarding the grade of the strain from manager Ned Yost following the game.
