Royals activate Gordon for Twins game
Gordon was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and was expected to be in Minneapolis in time for Saturday's game against the Twins. He began the season on a rehab assignment for a right thumb he broke diving into second base in a March 9 spring training game.
Getz strained his right oblique muscle in batting practice before Friday night's game against Minnesota and was a late scratch.
Gordon played in 49 games last season for the Royals after having early season hip surgery. He hit .232 with six home runs and 22 RBI.
