The four-year $72 million deal has no opt-out clause, meaning that he will be signed as a Royal until 2020 when he turns 35.
The official announcement by the Royals on the signing could come as earlier as later today. In 2015, Gordon slashed .271/.377/.432 with 13 home runs and 48 runs batted in on the year in 104 games.
