    • Royals' Jason Vargas: Placed on 60-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Vargas (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Friday. This was merely a procedural move to free up a 40-man spot for Mike Minor, who inked a two-year deal with Kansas City. Vargas is slated to miss most, if not all, of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery during the second half of last season.

    • Royals place SP Jason Vargas on DL with UCL tear
      By Jason Lempert

      Nearly 24 hours after activating him, the Royals have placed right-hander Jason Vargas back on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. Vargas has been diagnosed with a tear of his ulnar collateral ligament. Vargas returned from the DL on Tuesday to make the start against the Pirates, but left in the second inning after experiencing elbow pain. "It didn't feel good," Vargas said, per MLB.com. "More than anything, I hated having to walk off the field. Beautiful thing about this team is they respond to adversity." Royals manager Ned Yost all but confirmed Vargas will require Tommy John surgery, which would force him to miss the rest of this season, and possibly most--if not all--of next season. Vargas is owed $16.5 million over the next two years. Right-hander Yordano Ventura, who was optioned to Triple-A to clear room for Vargas, will be called right back to take Vargas' spot on the roster.

    • Royals starter Jason Vargas was forced to exit Tuesday's game in the top of the second inning with an elbow injury. Vargas, who was just activated off of the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game, was lifted after making 26 pitches against the Pirates. Vargas, who left with elbow pain, will have an MRI on Wednesday. His next start would be scheduled for Sunday against the Astros, but his status for the game is certainly in question at this point.
