Royals LF Alex Gordon close to return from groin injury

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Kansas City manager Ned Yost says left fielder Alex Gordon is "getting close" to rejoining the AL Central-leading Royals after missing almost two months with a strained left groin.

"He's up to about 90 percent running speed, has no issues with his leg," Yost said before Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Gordon has been out since July 9. He hit .279 with 11 homers and 39 RBIs in 78 games before the injury. He is currently on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha.
