News: Gordon went 3-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's victory over the White Sox. Impact: Gordon has been heating up since the All-Star break, having now logged three straight mult-hit efforts. Although the hits are starting to come, the outfielder seems to have regressed a bit in the power department so far in 2014. He hasn't homered in over a month, and his .150 isolated power mark would be his lowest since 2010. Fantasy owners will continue to keep their fingers crossed in hopes of a power streak from the Royals' left fielder.(RotoWire, )

News: Gordon (wrist) is back in the lineup Friday, batting fifth, Fox Sports Kansas City's Joel Goldberg reports. Impact: Prior to the All-Star break, Gordon missed four games with the wrist injury, but after more than a week off, he's healthy enough to return to patrolling left field and batting in the middle of the Royals' lineup.(RotoWire, )

News: Gordon was 2-for-4 with one RBI in his return to the Kansas City lineup Friday night. Impact: After missing four games with a minor wrist injury prior to the break, he enjoyed a successful batting practice session on Thursday before returning to the lineup in the team's first game back in action. Barring any lingering soreness tomorrow, he should be back to regular duty.(RotoWire, )

News: Gordon (wrist) had a workout that "went well" Thursday, according to Royals general manager Dayton Moore, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Gordon planned on testing his injured wrist Thursday, and it's a positive sign that the workout went as expected. This doesn't necessarily guarantee that he'll be in the lineup Friday against the Red Sox, but the team remains optimistic he'll be able to avoid the disabled list. With Norichika Aoki back in action and a Gordon return right around the corner, Jarrod Dyson and Raul Ibanez may soon find themselves with limited reps. However, if Gordon is unable to return during the weekend series against the Red Sox, a DL stint will likely come into consideration once again.(RotoWire, )

News: Gordon will test his wrist Thursday with the hope of returning to the lineup Friday in Boston, Andy McCullough of The Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Gordon will miss his second All-Star Game nod Tuesday due to the sore wrist that has sidelined him since last Wednesday. Fortunately, he reported Monday that the ailment "feels better," which is encouraging for his ability to play this weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Gordon will miss next week's All-Star game after visiting with a hand specialist and receiving an injection Thursday for his sprained right wrist. Gordon said he still plans to attend the game at Target Field in Minneapolis, and that he's looking forward to rooting on fellow All-Stars Greg Holland and Salvador Perez. Impact: Royals manager Ned Yost said he's holding off on putting Gordon on the disabled list in hopes that rest during the All-Star break will be enough. It's possible he could be used as a defensive replacement during a four-game series against Detroit starting Thursday night.(STATS, 6:25pm)

News: Gordon was scratched from Wednesday's lineup due to a sprained right wrist. He will have an MRI exam and see a hand specialist Thursday when the team returns to Kansas City.
