Latest Update Alex Gordon with two extra-base hits and two RBI Mon Aug, 18, 04:21 AM
Has phenomenal natural hitting talent. He can go deep to any field and is a very good athlete. Can do it all, including run a little and hit at the top of the batting order. His defense in left field is superb.
Flaws: : Could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio more in order to maximize his output as a hitter. After a shaky display at the hot corner, he has settled down defensively, but it was a struggle in the infield.
August continues to be an awesome month for Gordon as he is batting .339 with four home runs, eight RBI and 13 runs scored and we're barely past the halfway point. With Eric Hosmer out, Gordon, Billy Butler and now Josh Willingham have turned up their level of performance and at just the right time for fantasy owners. Gordon's over totals remain a little disappointing, but a strong finish like this could easily make us forget the first couple of months.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gordon pushed his season line to .279/.356/.437 with the big effort and the home run was the twelfth of the season. He's been one of the league's best players this season -- factoring in defense as well. With the disappearance of Billy Butler's bat, Gordon has been the engine of the Royals offense.

Gordon has now homered in two of his last three games, as he continues to do his part in trying to get the Royals to the postseason. He is now slashing .276/.352/.428 with 11 home runs, 51 RBI and 57 runs scored through 402 at-bats and should remain a viable fantasy option now hitting in the five hole. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Well finally, a splash of some power here from Gordon. Man, has this been a brutal wait for fantasy owners. This was his first home run since June 21, a span of 34 games. Yes, 34 games. He's still slashing a solid .273/.351/.420, but the lack of power has been a disaster. The obvious hope is that this game triggers something for him, but a power streak is certainly not something you can count on from Gordon anymore.Analyst: Howard Bender
