NEW YORK -- Royals left fielder and his wife, Jamie, welcomed their third child to the world Monday, a girl named Joey Lynn.

Gordon is on paternity leave back in Kansas City and is expected to rejoin the club on Tuesday, though manager Ned Yost said Gordon likely won't make it in time for Tuesday's game.

The Gordons also have two sons -- Max and Sam.

Meanwhile, Yost became a grandfather for the third time. His daughter, Jenny, gave birth to a girl named Everly on Friday.

Still waiting on Karns

Yost said the Royals still were contemplating a stint on the disabled list for right-hander Nate Karns, who felt some tightness and fluid on top of his forearm. Karns' spot in the rotation is due up Thursday, but Yost said he is considering right-hander there -- Kennedy threw just two innings in a start in game two of a doubleheader Sunday.

The Royals still would need a starter Friday, but that could be filled by rookie , who started on Sunday in the first game of the doubleheader. Junis has been optioned back to Triple-A but could be recalled before the 10-day minimum because of an injury (Karns to the DL).
