Royals physicians also have cleared Gordon for about 15 "dry" swings Tuesday, meaning he will swing without any contact with a baseball.

Gordon has continued his rigorous workout schedule since arriving in Arizona over a week ago. He said last week he may still have to miss about a week's worth of Spring Training games.
Gordon was unavailable for comment Monday as he was getting his daily treatment when the clubhouse was closed to reporters.
