Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored during the Royals' 12-6 win over the Twins on Sunday.
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
Chris Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a grand slam against Detroit on Thursday.
Like several of his teammates, Iannetta has been bitten by the bad BABIP bug so far this season. However, Iannetta strikes out too much to ever help out in the batting average category. But he may not be as much of a drag going forward. The more concerning issue is his power, which, going back to last season, has been significantly reduced in his last 500 plate appearances. On the wrong side of 30, Iannetta may not see his power stroke return. Analysis: Brett Talley
