Ouch! Gordon to miss 10 to 12 weeks

Third baseman Alex Gordon is expected to be out of action for 10 to 12 weeks after undergoing successful hip surgery, the Royals announced on Friday.

Surgery to repair a tear in the labral cartilage of the right hip was performed on Friday morning at Vail, Colo., by Dr. Marc Philippon.

The timetable means that Gordon would not return until late June at the earliest.

Gordon was injured last Saturday in a game against the New York Yankees.
