Ned Yost Media Session: Alex Gordon update

Alex Gordon’s recovery continues after his crash into the left field wall during Wednesday’s game vs. Cleveland. Ned Yost was asked about the condition of his star left fielder at his afternoon media session.

“Alex has passed every impact test (concussion test) from us. We have submitted the paper work to MLB so they can clear him. Once you have submitted it to MLB they will send an impartial doctor to look at him. That could be today or tomorrow.”  The skipper went onto say, “He still has a major bruise on his hip. He is going to come out and stretch with the team, play a little catch and go in the cage. If it feels alright he may come out and take some BP but it is still going to be a couple of days.”

The Oakland A’s come into town boasting one of the best records in all of baseball. The manager was asked what jumps out at him about the Athletics. “Their record jumps out at you. Their starting pitching jumps out at you. Their bullpen is very good. They have a very solid offense which is stacked with left handed batters at the bottom of their order. They are in a very tough division and they are at the top of it. They are very good team,” said Yost.
