Gordon is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rosell Herrera will fill in for Gordon in the season finale. Gordon has enjoyed a minor renaissance over the final two months, batting a palatable .254 while chipping in more than half of his total home runs (seven of 13) and steals (eight of 12) on the season. The 34-year-old is an odd fit on a Kansas City club in the midst of a lengthy rebuild, but unless he's dealt this winter, Gordon should retain an everyday role in 2019, which marks the final year of his contract.

Gordon went 3-for-5 with two doubles and five RBI on Saturday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon drove in a pair of runners on each of his doubles and also drove in a run on a groundout in the first inning. It was his first five-RBI performance of the season, but Gordon has now driven in 12 runs in September to go along with seven runs scored. His numbers for the season aren't impressive -- he's hitting just .242/.326/.362 across 458 at-bats -- but he has shown the capability of being a solid producer in the final stretch of the season.
