Player Notes
Alex Gordon hit a double and a single in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Advice: Gordon finished the game 2-for-4. In the early going, he's one of just a few Royal offensive players who are struggling, slashing .222/.400/.259. Almost every other regular batter on the team is hitting over .300. Gordon's not in danger of losing his starting job, but he might see a few days off here and there until the bat starts heating up.

Alex Gordon is not in the Royals' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Twins.

Advice: Minnesota is throwing southpaw Tommy Milone, so the left-handed-hitting Gordon will take a day of rest. The 31-year-old outfielder is off to a 3-for-20 (.150) start this season. Paulo Orlando is in left field for Thursday's matinee and Jarrod Dyson is starting in right.

Alex Gordon is not in the Royals' lineup Sunday.

Advice: Gordon has just one hit in his first 13 at-bats and the Royals are facing a lefty (C.J. Wilson), so it seems like a good time to rest him. Paulo Orlando is getting a start in left field.
