Alex Gordon was healthy in 2011 and blossomed, posting a .376 on-base percentage and an .879 OPS and winning a Gold Glove in left field. Jeff Francoeur has been part of the baseball landscape for so long that it's easy to forget he is just 27 years old (he turns 28 in 10 days) and he appears to have settled in -- Francoeur, a strong complementary hitter in the K.C. lineup, racked up 71 extra-base hits and drove in 87 runs, and earned a multi-year deal from the Royals. Melky Cabrera had a good year in 2011 but the Royals moved him, largely to make room in center field for Lorenzo Cain, who has hit .302 in his first 181 plate appearances in the big leagues; he thrived in Triple-A last year, pushing Kansas City to make room for him.
