Alex Gordon to DL
For now it looks like Aviles to 3B and Pena takes over at SS. I’d say good news for Aviles except he can’t hit.
KANSAS CITY, MO (April 16, 2009) — The Kansas City Royals today announced that third baseman Alex Gordon has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip labral cartilage tear. The injury will require an arthroscopic procedure to repair the tear tomorrow by Dr. Marc Philippon in Vail, Colorado. No timetable on Gordon’s return will be available until the procedure is completed.
