Gordon expected back in lineup Wednesday


SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Left fielder Alex Gordon, who missed the last two games because of back stiffness, is expected to be in the Royals' lineup on Wednesday against the Brewers.

"[Manager Ned Yost] just wanted to give me one more day because we're going on the road for the first time. I should be ready to go tomorrow," Gordon said.

Gordon was scratched from Monday's game after the morning stretch.

"It happened just out of the blue. Right after stretch, it locked up on me," Gordon said.

Yost said he also expected center fielder Lorenzo Cain to be in Wednesday's lineup. He has missed all five games because of a strained right hand.
