Alex Gordon LF KC 12 Days

Gordon (wrist) may be limited during spring training, the Kansas City Star reports.

Gorodn, who underwent surgery on his right wrist on Dec. 30, expects to be ready for Opening Day, but he'll probably reduce his workload during spring training. "I don't know if he'll be 100 percent," GM Dayton Moore said. "(Trainer) Nick (Kenney) does feel very confident that he'll be ready to go Opening Day. Will Alex get his usual number of reps early on? I can't say that's going to take place, for sure." Moore added that the team expects Gordon to participate in a number of drills, as well as live batting practice, when spring training opens, but Moore also noted that he believes manager Ned Yost will progress Gordon more slowly than he has in the past. "We'll listen to Alex. I think Alex is a good self-evaluator," Moore said. "He'll tell us where he is. And I know Nick will trust him. We'll trust Nick and Alex, together, to help us make those decisions on the field." Gordon finished 12th in the American League MVP voting last season, posting a .783 OPS with 19 home runs and 74 RBI. He also took home his fourth consecutive Gold Glove award.

Gordon underwent surgery on his right wrist Tuesday and is expected to recover before opening day, the Kansas City Star reports.

Gordon informed the Royals earlier in the month that he was experiencing discomfort in the wrist during offseason workouts, and an evaluation revealed an issue with his extensor retinaculum. The surgery avoids any future complications for Gordon, who missed a handful of games in July with a right wrist injury, and he's expected to be ready well before opening day.

Gordon hit a two-run walk-off home run as the Royals defeated the Twins on Tuesday.

Gordon's blast off Glen Perkins ended the Twins' shutout bid and enabled the Royals to maintain their division lead over the Tigers. The 30-year-old's overall numbers (.283 average, 16 homers, 59 RBI, eight stolen bases) wouldn't suggest that he's in the midst of the career-best season, but his 5.6 WAR on the campaign ranks right up there with leading MVP candidates Mike Trout and Giancarlo Stanton.

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a win over the Giants on Saturday night.

The blast was Gordon's 11th of the season, and second in the last three games. He continues to provide excellent value for the Royals with his defense in left field, but Gordon seems to have leveled off with a .276/.352/.428 line, and his days of carrying an OPS north of .800 may be over.
