Kris Medlen (elbow) threw a 17-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday.
It's the first time he's thrown from the bump since undergoing a second Tommy John surgery. "I felt like I was extremely rusty," Medlen said. "Because I was just having trouble repeating (my delivery) and all that stuff. That’s my pitching style, and I take pride in that, and I couldn’t do it. So that was a little frustrating. But armwise, it felt like it was coming out really good. I felt strong." Medlen will receive four days off as he eases back into a throwing program. Royals manager Ned Yost has said it's possible the righty could be with the big club by June, but general manager Dayton Moore has offered a more realistic timetable of after the All-Star break. Medlen is under team control through 2017. Mar 20 - 10:05 AM
