Royals prospect RHP Kyle Zimmer has had his throwing program suspended after experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder.
He had been pitching at the Royals’ complex in Arizona and was expected to join Double-A Northwest Arkansas on May 10. That clearly won’t be happening, but follow-up examinations revealed no structural damage, and the hope is that Zimmer will resume throwing bullpen sessions sometime next week. The 23-year-old right-hander has been plagued by injuries since the Royals made him the No. 5 pick in the 2012 draft, logging just 152 2/3 innings over three seasons. Zimmer has proved to be dominant when healthy, though, with a 3.66 ERA, .236 opponents’ batting average and 11.0 K/9 in that span. May 7 - 3:32 PM
