Gordon to start throwing after Indians series

June 2nd, 2016

KANSAS CITY -- Alex Gordon was told after his injury -- a fractured scaphoid in his right wrist after a collision with Mike Moustakas -- that he would be re-evaluated after 10 days.

That time frame was up on Wednesday and Gordon, after an examination, was told by physicians that it's progressing as well as it can be.

"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."
