After missing two months with a groin injury All-Star left fielder Alex Gordon is off the disabled list and back on the Royals’ active roster for the final month of the season.

Kansas City kept rolling along without Gordon and enters September with an AL-best 80-50 record, but having him healthy for the playoffs is a huge key for the Royals.

Gordon hit .279 with 11 homers and an .852 OPS in 78 games before the injury, making his third consecutive All-Star game at age 31. In addition to being one of the Royals’ best hitters he’s also a fantastic defensive left fielder, winning four straight Gold Glove awards.
