Royals third baseman Alex Gordon underwent a successful surgery on a torn right labrum. "We want him to be safe, something we can take care of at the young age of 25," Hillman said. "Hopefully, he'll never have this recur again." Gordon is entering his third major league season with a .250 average and 32 homeruns in 292 career games. The Royals have a huge hole in their lineup without Alex Gordon, and it will be interesting to see if they make an addition to keep their playoff hopes alive.
There are several veterans available that they could make a move on to help jump start their offense. Barry Bonds is one highly unlikely possibility, but guys like David Ortiz or Adrian Beltre could be available.
