Alex Gordon went 1-for-3 and blasted a two run home run to give him 19 on the year and the Royals beat the Rangers 4-1 on Wednesday.
Gordon continues to be a great major league player and fantasy option. While none of his stats jump out at you, he does a little bit of everything. His WAR (wins above replacement) rating is up with the best of the best of the league. Keep starting Gordon with confidence.ANALYST: Colby Conway
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste.
