"I can start throwing after the Cleveland series [this weekend] and start hitting next homestand," Gordon said. "Nothing extreme in terms of throwing."
In the meantime, Gordon has watched the Royals go on a tear -- they are 8-1 since his injury on May 22 after a 6-3 victory over the Rays on Wednesday night.
"Just fun to watch right now," he said. "I was telling some of the coaches this is the best I've seen us play during a homestand. We're just not missing pitches and we're getting quality at-bats. Just really impressive. Like I said, fun to watch ... unfortunately."
