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.
