Alex Gordon is considering pushing his free-agency a year. Gordon can become a free-agent following the 2015 season, but has indicated he might accept his $13.25 million player option for 2016. The move would come as a surprise.

It's always a surprise when a player opts not to become a free agent, but considering Gordon has had a bit of a down year this season, unless he completely turns things around in September and helps lead the Royals through a big push into the playoffs, it might be the wise move for him if he believes that A. he simply wants to stay in Kansas City or B. he feels that he can do better statistically and thus command more money on the open market. Obviously he doesn't have to make the decision immediately, so we'll see how the end of the season goes.
