Royals Place Gordon on DL with Fractured Right Wrist
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — When Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas collided while chasing a foul ball on Sunday, the Kansas City Royals gasped at the prospects of losing two All-Stars on one play.
A day later, the news could have been much worse.
Gordon was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with a fractured right wrist, but will not need surgery. Moustakas was held out of the series opener in Minnesota, but is considered day to day with a bruised knee.
The break in the scaphoid was non-displaced. Gordon is expected to miss three to four weeks.
The All-Stars were injured in a loss to the White Sox in Chicago on Sunday when they slammed into each other while chasing after a fly ball in foul territory.
The Royals recalled infielder Cheslor Cuthbert to take Gordon's place on the roster.
