Royals left fielder Alex Gordon played catch for the first time since his December surgery to repair a tendon in his right wrist. The former Husker has been cleared to take “dry” swings beginning today, meaning he can swing without any contact with a baseball.
“Just getting him loosened up to see how it feels,” Yost said.
Gordon has been working out intensely since arriving in Surprise, Arizona over a week ago. Gordan said when he arrived, he may still have to miss about a week’s worth of Spring Training games, but manager Ned Yost is very confident that his Gold Glove left fielder will be ready for Opening Day.
