Its pretty hard to imagine the Royals bringing Gordon up with German and Graffanino somewhat capable of holding down 3B.
This is an exciting move for Royals fans though. There were some serious questions about how Baird would deal with the logjam at 3B. Many were predicting he would keep Teahen there just in an attempt to show eeryone he got something worthwhile out of the Beltran deal. This move at least gives KC fans some hope that Baird is not so hung up on proving himself and can admit when one of his young players are failing.

Rest assured, they will be doing nothing more than keeping the position warm for Gordon. The phenom could get the call as soon as this Friday in Baltimore or, more likely, when the Royals return home (May 19 vs. St. Louis). It could be a way to help sell tickets for a weekend series.
