Royals manager Ned Yost says it’s “reasonable” to expect Alex Gordon to come off of the 15-day disabled list and rejoin the team on Tuesday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.
Gordon has been on the disabled list since July 9 due to a Grade 2 groin strain. The three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner was batting .279/.394/.457 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI in 312 plate appearances prior to the injury.
The Royals enter play tonight 79-49, 13 games ahead of the Twins in first place in the AL Central.
Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.
The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.
If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
