Report: Giants ‘hot for Alex Gordon'


After agreeing to terms with Jeff Samardzija on a 5-year, $90 million deal, the Giants are believed to now be in the market for an everyday left fielder.

San Francisco is reportedly "hot for Alex Gordon," according to ESPN's Pedro Gomez.

The Royals selected Gordon with the second overall pick in the 2005 draft.

Over the past five seasons (728 games), Gordon hit .281 with 89 home runs and 362 RBI.

He won the Gold Glove four straight years from 2011 to 2014, and was an All-Star each of the last three seasons.

In 2015, Gordon appeared in just 104 games (groin injury) and batted .271 with 13 home runs and 48 RBI.

Over 16 2015 postseason games, he hit .241 with two bombs and six RBI to go along with eight walks.

Against the Giants in the 2014 World Series, he hit just .185 with two RBI.

Gordon turns 32 years old on Feb. 10.
