Royals' Gordon out with possible concussion
Royals outfielder Alex Gordon left Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in the sixth inning with a possible concussion after making an awkward attempt to catch a fly ball.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Royals outfielder Alex Gordon left Wednesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in the sixth inning with a possible concussion after making an awkward attempt to catch a fly ball.
Gordon landed in a heap on the warning track and didn't move while Jason Kipnis rounded the bases for an inside-the-park, three-run homer that gave the Indians a 3-1 lead.
Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie immediately motioned to the dugout, and trainer Nick Kenney and manager Ned Yost ran out to check on the Gold Glove outfielder. He limped off the field and the team reported that Gordon sustained a possible concussion and a bruised right hip.
Gordon will be evaluated again on Thursday.
"We'll just monitor it day to day," Yost said.
Gordon said afterward that he couldn't remember everything that happened on the play.
"I kind of got off balance and that's when I fell into the wall," he said.
"As exciting as it was to see Kip run the bases, it's hard not to worry," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "[Gordon] plays so hard and is such a good player."
