Alex Gordon out 10-12 weeks

Kansas City Royals third baseman Alex Gordon had hip surgery performed by (who else?) Dr. Marc Philippon Friday morning.

He is expected to miss 10-12 weeks and the Royals will move Mark Teahan to third.

"Gordon is a big part of the team," Teahen said. "But we're off to a good start and we have a deeper team this year.

"It's not a huge adjustment for me. I've been able to go back and forth from the right field to third before."

Gordon, who was the second overall pick in 2005, was struggling early in the season (2-for-21 in seven games).
