The Kansas City Royals took quite possibly the biggest hit of any team in baseball by losing Alex Gordon to an injury.
Being one of the best all-around payers in the game, Gordon cannot be replaced, but Cespedes might be able ease the pain a bit.

The Royals have led the Al Central almost the entire season and show no signs of slowing down. In fact, they are the only AL team with a record of 20 games above .500. As one of the more complete teams in baseball, they are incredibly tough to beat. And yes, they made it to Game Seven of the World Series last season. But just like last season, there’s a little room for improvement.
Many would say it’s idiotic to make deals within your own division, but if you’re not playing for anything like Detroit would be later in the season, it doesn’t matter. It’s also wise to consider that “Royals” and “Free Agents” have never been uttered in the same sentence by anyone of planet Earth, so don’t worry about Cespedes sticking around.
