    • Minor (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Thursday, 610 Sports Radio's Josh Vernier reports. He recently threw a live batting practice session, so a rehab assignment was anticipated to begin this week. The Royals could desperately use some help in the starting rotation, and if Minor's rehab assignment goes well, he should get a shot to start games for the big league club in August. That said, it's worth pointing out that Minor hasn't been a quality big league pitcher since 2013, primarily due to injuries, but also ineffectiveness in his last full season in 2014.

    • Minor (shoulder) threw a live batting practice session Sunday, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports. Minor indicated he felt good during the session, but he might be required to face hitters once more before the Royals clear him to start a rehab assignment. The left-hander had previously been taking part in a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha back in May before shoulder fatigue set in, but the issue appears to be behind him now.

    • Royals' Mike Minor: Could begin rehab very soon
      By RotoWire Staff

      Royals manager Ned Yost said that Minor looked really good during his bullpen session and could go out on a rehab assignment very soon, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Minor (shoulder) was thought to be a couple weeks away from a rehab assignment, but it looks like that timetable might be moving up. This is great news for the 28-year-old, who hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2014 with the Braves.

    • Royals' Mike Minor: Throwing live BP in Arizona
      By RotoWire Staff

      Minor (shoulder) is in Arizona throwing live BP sessions, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Minor was well on his way to a full recovery from shoulder surgery, rehabbing at Triple-A in May, until he reported rotator cuff fatigue at the end of that month. He's steadily been building up his strength since then, playing catch and throwing side sessions, and it now appears he's taken another step forward by tossing batting practice. The 28-year-old is likely still several weeks away from a rehab assignment but looks to be heading in the right direction.

    • Minor (shoulder) threw a side session Tuesday, but is still waiting to begin a rehab assignment, the Kansas City reports. The Royals have a need in the back of their rotation, but Minor's slow progress makes it easy to wonder if he will pitch at all for the team in 2016. Once he begins pitching in games, Minor will likely need a full complement of rehab starts before he's activated.
