Player Notes
Alex Gordon (wrist) has been cleared to hit off a tee.

Advice: It's the next step in his hitting program after he took some dry swings earlier this week. "He’s progressing fine," Royals manager Ned Yost said. Making his way back from offseason wrist surgery, Gordon is on pace to be ready to roll well before Opening Day as long as he can avoid setbacks.

Alex Gordon (wrist) took 15 dry swings with a fungo bat on Tuesday afternoon in Royals camp.

Advice: Gordon got through the workout with no issues. He was cleared for throwing on Monday and should progress to live batting practice by early next week. The 31-year-old outfielder expects to be ready for the start of the 2015 regular season: "No question," Gordon said Tuesday. "Not even a doubt in my mind."

Alex Gordon (wrist) has been cleared to take 15 dry swings on Tuesday.

Advice: It's the next step in his recovery from January wrist surgery. Gordon was cleared for throwing on Monday morning and should be able to progress to live batting practice in about a week. He is expected to be ready for the beginning of the regular season.

Alex Gordon (wrist) has been cleared for throwing.

Advice: And he hopes to be cleared for batting practice by the end of this week. Gordon underwent an extensor retinaculum repair on his right wrist in early January but is only a couple days behind the other outfielders in Royals camp this spring. If everything goes smoothly from this point on, he should be ready for the beginning of the 2015 regular season.

Alex Gordon indicated he's unsure if he'll exercise his $13.25 million option for 2016.

Advice: "That’s a question that honestly doesn’t need to be answered right now," Gordon said. "Because I don’t know the answer right now. I don’t know how this year is going to go, or how it’s going to look at the end of the year. Honestly, I don’t know." That goes against what Gordon said last summer, when he said he would exercise the option. It makes sense for him to back off that commitment -- he could certainly get more on the open market, and there's no reason for him to decide one way or the other on February 21. The situation will certainly be of interest for the Royals and their fans this summer.
