Gordon went 4-for-5 with a single, two doubles, a home run and three RBI in Friday's 8-1 win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder remains a bright spot in the Royals' lineup. Gordon is now slashing .390/.491/.732 through 12 games with three homers, 12 runs and 13 RBI, and he's showing excellent plate discipline with a 7:5 BB:K. He hasn't posted an OPS over .700 since 2015, so this hot streak could turn ice-cold in a hurry, but enjoy the surprising production while it lasts.

Gordon is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

Gordon is off to a strong start to the season, hitting .313/.442/.531 with two homers, 10 RBI and a 6:4 BB:K through 10 games. The veteran outfielder will sit for the first time Wednesday, with Terrance Gore starting in left field and hitting ninth in his place.

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

His three-run shot off Kyle Gibson in the fifth inning, Gordon's first homer of the year, gave the Royals a 6-3 lead that the bullpen would squander. The veteran outfielder had only one hit in 11 at-bats coming into Wednesday -- although he had scored a surprising six runs thanks to three walks and three HBP -- and his career trajectory suggests performances like this one could be few and far between in 2019.

Gordon (calf) is in the lineup for the Royals' Opening Day matchup with the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon missed the Royals' last couple spring games due to a sore calf, but manager Ned Yost expected him to be in the Opening Day lineup, and it turns out he will do just that. Gordon will man left field and hit third against White Sox starter Carlos Rodon.

Manager Ned Yost said Gordon likely won't play in the Royals' final two spring contests, but indicated the outfielder would be ready to go for the Opening Day game March 28 versus the White Sox, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon exited Friday's 15-3 win over the Giants with left calf tightness, but felt fine upon reporting back to camp Saturday. Yost described the calf issue as more of a cramp than a true injury, so Gordon shouldn't need more than a couple days of rest to remedy the matter. Gordon is slated to open the season as the Royals' everyday left fielder and could be a sneaky source of counting stats in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats after chipping in 13 home runs and 12 steals in 2018.

EDGE Analysis

Gordon went 1-for-1 with a two-RBI single and a run scored before giving way to Brian Goodwin in the bottom of the second inning. The severity of the injury remains unclear at the moment; Gordon should be considered day-to-day until he's further evaluated in the coming days.

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.
