Analysis: Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that an MRI exam taken after the game revealed a "two-plus groin strain," and that the one positive is that Gordon will not need surgery. When asked whether the eight-week timeframe meant Gordon would be back in games during the regular season, Yost said that he simply didn't know.
