Alex Gordon to Have Hip Surgery

Alex Gordon will have hip surgery tomorrow in Colorado. He has a tear in the labral cartilage in his right hip. The Royals have placed him on the 15-day DL for now.

I’m assuming that Mark Teahen will take over third base in Gordon’s absence and he’ll be fine there. But that means that either Alberto Callaspo or Willie Bloomquist will play second and they can’t replace Teahen’s bat at that position.

Just nine games into the season and we’ve already lost Jose Guillen and Alex Gordon for at least two weeks each. That’s not good.
