Injury Update: Alex Gordon

Alex Gordon is progressing in his rehab from wrist surgery and is tracking for an opening day return. Gordon will likely be eased in for spring training and could possibly even miss the start. He is scheduled to have his cast removed feb. 9th and will ramp up baseball activities therein. It's important to note other players suffering similar wrist injuries have seen their power dip upon their return. Gordon has only hit more than 20 HR's once in his career so it would seem reasonable to think he won't eclipse that once again. Steamer projects Gordon hitting .270 with 16 HR's in 2015.
