Alex Gordon has denied a CBS Sports report that the Kansas City Royals have "no chance" to re-sign him.
Gordon told the Lincoln Journal Star and the Omaha World Herald on Monday there was "no truth," to the report that the Royals have no chance to sign him.
"Right now I'm unemployed and I pay an agent 4 percent to make the calls, take the calls and let me know what's going on," he said.
The Royals drafted Gordon second overall in 2005.
"Right now I'm talking with a lot of teams," Gordon said. "I just want to make the best decision for me and my family."
Gordon added: "The Royals are still in the mix. I know what's going on behind the scenes, and I'm dealing with it the best I can."
