Gordon, Cain back from minor injuries

PEORIA, Ariz. -- Outfielders Alex Gordon (stiff back) and Lorenzo Cain (strained hand) got through Wednesday's return to action just fine, and were back in the lineup on Thursday against the Padres.

Infielder Elliot Johnson remained out with a bruised shin sustained when a Brewers runner slid into him during Wednesday's 3-2 Royals victory.
