Alex Gordon's three walks (4/26 @ Min) probably didn't get a lot of attention from fantasy owners, but they could be one of a few signs that he's starting to come around. Gordon also had two singles in the game, reaching base in all five of his plate appearances. Over the past seven games, Gordon has put together a .285/.516/.333 line – granted, you'd like to see more power from him, but the Royals' uber-prospect is certainly starting to be more selective at the plate, a good sign in and of itself. Gordon struck out 16 times in 12 games before drawing his first walk of the season, but has 11 walks and 13 strikeouts over his past 12 games. Gordon began the season batting fifth for the Royals, accumulating a .088/.139/.206 line in nine games – the pressure of massive expectations no doubt weighed heavily on his shoulders. Since being moved down in the order, Gordon has amassed a .234/.410/.362 line – again, not a huge help to fantasy teams, but a clear sign of improvement. Gordon was owned in 55 percent of Yahoo! leagues at the beginning of the season, but that number is currently at 21 percent – add him to your Watch List and at least keep an eye on Gordon over the next few weeks to see if his numbers continue to improve.

Think he's worth stashing in a 14 team H2H non keeper?

he hasn't exactly been 'heating up' (although he's 6 for 21 over the past 7 games) but those numbers are at least a good sign in general

There you go ;-D
