Mar 7, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

According to the Kansas City Star’s Bob Dutton, Royals third baseman Alex Gordon has been diagnosed with a broken thumb and will be sidelined for the next three-to-four weeks.  It’s not clear how or when the injury happened, but it’s safe to say he won’t be ready for the start of the regular season.

Gordon, 26, posted a disappointing .232/.324/.378 batting line last season with six homers and 22 RBI in 164 at-bats.  He spent a ton of time on the disabled list with a hip injury.
