Gordon Injures Shoulder

If you noticed that Alex Gordon was not in the line up yesterday or today, you weren’t the only one. Sports Illustrated is reporting that he is going to miss a few games because he has a sore shoulder. The injury may have happened when he dove for a ball against the Angels on Friday or he might have just slept on it in an odd fashion. But the Royals don’t appear to be taking any chances. They are saying he’ll probably have an MRI. Losing Gordon for a long period of time would be nightmare for this franchise.

In other injury news, Leo Nunez was also hurt in the game on Friday. He was hit on the right wrist by a line drive and it caused a hairline fracture. He’s currently in a split and is expected to miss a month or more. He was probably a long shot when it came to making a spot on the 25-man roster out of spring training anyway. He has a 6.99 career ERA in 48 appearances and his ERA this spring is 9.00.
