Royals place Gordon on DL with fractured right wrist

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Kansas City Royals have placed All-Star outfielder Alex Gordon on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right wrist.

The Royals announced the move on Monday before opening a series in Minnesota against the Twins.

Manager Ned Yost says Gordon will not need surgery but will miss three to four weeks. Gordon was injured in a loss to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday when he collided with third baseman Mike Moustakas.
