Gordon went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was his 17th of the year but just his third in September, as Gordon is slashing a weak .224/.298/.408 in 76 at-bats over the final month. The 32-year-old is headed for his worst numbers since his breakout 2011 campaign, and the Royals may already be regretting the four-year contract they inked him to back in January.

Gordon is not in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the White Sox, Josh Vernier of 610 KCSP reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon is hitless in his past five games, and with tough left-hander Chris Sale toeing the rubber for Chicago, the 32-year-old will head to the bench for a day off. Whit Merrifield will replace him in left field for the evening.

Gordon went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI, and a run in his return to the lineup Monday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

After missing a game and a half with achilles soreness, Gordon came back without missing a beat Monday. While hitting just .225 on the season, Gordon has come on strong in the last month or so, going .278/.361/.519 in his last 30 games. He could be of some value for fantasy owners searching for an outfielder for the final stretch of the season.

Gordon (Achilles) is back in the lineup Monday against the Twins, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports. He'll play left field and bat sixth in the order.

EDGE Analysis

After he experienced tightness in his Achilles during Saturday's game, Gordon was rested for Sunday's series finale with the Tigers for what appears to have been precautionary purposes. The outfielder evidently felt fine after going through warmup drills and batting practice Monday, so he should be in store for a full slate of starts during the week. Gordon is batting .242 with seven homers, three steals, 17 RBI and 28 runs in 161 at-bats since the All-Star break.

Gordon (Achilles) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio AM reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon's absence was expected after he battled discomfort in his Achilles during Saturday's game, but the Royals are hopeful he'll only need a day off before potentially returning to the lineup for Monday's series opener against the Twins. In Gordon's stead, Whit Merrifield will make a start in left field.

Gordon went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon followed a three-run blast by Eric Hosmer earlier in the first to plate Kendrys Morales with a 394-foot shot to center to close out a five-run opening frame. The veteran outfielder is finally starting to hit his stride at the plate, with seven homers and 10 RBI since Aug. 16.

Gordon homered for the third straight day Thursday, this time socking a fourth-inning grand slam in an 8-2 win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

He's also hit safely in nine straight and scored a run in seven straight, lifting his average 20 points in the process. Gordon's season stats are still ugly, but he seems to have finally returned to form on the back end of an injury-marred campaign and thus is worth deploying in fantasy lineups the rest of the way.

Gordon is hitting .269/.333/.423 so far in August after coming into the month hitting .206/.313/.335.

EDGE Analysis

Most of the 32-year-old's improvement can be attributed to his batting average on balls in play jumping from .272 to .387. Although unconfirmed, Gordon's early-season struggles could stem from a broken bone in his right hand that sent him to the DL on May 23

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored in Monday's 3-1 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon has lacked power with just 20 extra-base hits all season, but has come on with four multi-hit games during his current six-game hitting streak. The veteran still has a long way to go to make up for a pitiful .216/.317/.341 line through 86 games.
