Is Alex Gordon the Royals Future Center Fielder?
With all of the recent trade talk with the KC Royals, I thought it was only right to explain who could take over these beloved players positions. With Lorenzo Cain being mentioned as a possible piece in trade rumors, the hole in center field would have to be filled immediately. With a soon expiring contract as well, there is only one man on the team who could currently play everyday in center field. That man is Alex Gordon.
It is no secret that Lorenzo Cain has been rumored to be on the trading block. If the KC Royals decide to part ways, obviously, there will be a major hole in the middle of the outfield. Alex Gordon made his first start in center this past week and made two incredible catches in the process.
The Gold Glove left fielder looked as if he had played center field his whole career, which sets up this question. With the imminent future ahead, is Alex Gordon the next center field option? I think so, here is why.
