Royals outfielder Alex Gordon’s obsession with preparation has made him a star

Royals left fielder Alex Gordon’s obsession with preparation, the year-round regimentation that has transformed him from a first-round draft bust into a two-time All-Star, begins with his eating habits. He avoids fried foods. He abhors sweets. Then there’s his workout routine. His pre-game preparation is meticulous. Each activity feeds into his performance on the diamond, which the Royals hope Gordon returns on Friday as the second half begins at Fenway Park.
