Everett Teaford (shoulder) is long-tossing at 75 feet with no issues.

"I threw from 75 feet, and it felt good. I am off today, and then tomorrow I'll throw from maybe 90 feet. You never know what tomorrow will bring," Teaford said Thursday. It sounds like the lefty should be ready to throw from a mound soon.

Everett Teaford (shoulder) is hoping to resume throwing off a mound on Monday.

Teaford miss his last two scheduled throwing sessions because of a sore shoulder. "It’s just a range-of-motion thing," Teaford said. "It’s not a major setback. I kept hoping it was one of those spring-training things where it will just be, boom, release and everything will be good. That my body would catch up. But I could feel my mechanics starting to go south."

The Royals have decided to pitch Everett Teaford and Vin Mazzaro on Wednesday against the Rangers rather than pitch Luke Hochevar on short rest.

Hochevar lasted just 1 2/3 innings and 63 pitches in his last start, which made the Royals consider bringing him back early, but they've decided against it. "We'd be pushing this a little bit," manager Ned Yost said. "Especially going in September, these guys need four days." It's not clear whether it will be Teaford or Mazzaro getting the ball first, but they're both capable of going multiple innings.
