Royals bring Gordon off DL, welcome Gomes to Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Good luck finding a team that got a bigger boost when rosters expanded than the Kansas City Royals, who along with the usual September call-ups welcomed Alex Gordon back from the disabled list and Jonny Gomes from the Atlanta Braves.

Gordon has been out since July 8, when the All-Star outfielder crumpled to the warning track while chasing a fly ball against Tampa Bay. He was diagnosed with a severe groin strain.

Gomes was acquired in a trade just before Monday's deadline.
