Royals new SP Kris Medlen rides run support to another win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kris Medlen hasn't been lights-out since joining the Royals rotation, but the offense continued to provide plenty of runs Saturday in Tampa Bay and he performed well enough to win his second straight start.

Medlen allowed three runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings to raise his record on the year to 3-0. He walked two and whiffed five.

The right-hander struggled only in the fourth, when an RBI single by Asdrubal Cabrera and two-run homer by Kevin Kiermaier turned a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 deficit.

Medlen has given up six runs in 11 1/3 innings in his two starts, but the result both times has been a win.

Royals SP Kris Medlen rewarded with win in first start since 2013
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals comeback kid Kris Medlen pitched well Monday in his first start since Tommy John surgery. He even got a bonus.

The bonus was a victory, courtesy of a huge offensive explosion after he had thrown his last pitch. Medlen allowed three runs on five hits in six innings with no walks and six strikeouts.

Such a result did not appear likely after he surrendered a two-run homer to Adam Jones in the first, but he settled down thereafter and retired the last seven batters he faced.

Medlen had tossed 11 consecutive shutout innings heading into the outing.

Royals P Kris Medlen set to start Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

What was anticipated is now official - Kris Medlen will make his first start with the Royals on Monday against visiting Baltimore, per the Kansas City Star.

Medlen has not started since his fine 2013 season in Atlanta. He has recovered from Tommy John surgery and has performed well out of the bullpen for the Royals. He pitched three shutout innings Thursday against Boston.

Pitching coach Dave Eiland has stated that he will need two or three starts to build up his strength enough to throw 90-100 pitches in a game.

Kris Medlen could be in and Jeremy Guthrie out of Royals rotation
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The potential removal of ineffective Jeremy Guthrie from the rotation for the Royals has Ned Yost considering Kris Medlen as his replacement, according to the Kansas City Star.

Guthrie could find himself in the bullpen after not being able to finish five innings Wednesday and having his ERA rise to 5.64. He is scheduled to start Monday against Baltimore, but that might not happen. Yost won't indicate either way.

"I haven't thought about it," he said. "Like I'm going to sit here and tell you if he is or isn't."

Chris Young is another possibility, but Medlen has performed extremely well recently with 11 consecutive scoreless innings and 10 strikeouts during that time.

Medlen was an excellent starter with Atlanta in 2012 and 2013 before losing time to Tommy John surgery.

Yost seeking to give Royals righty Kris Medlen a start in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals are breezing to the American League Central title, so Ned Yost can afford a little experimentation. And one experiment he is hoping to try before the end of the season is giving Kris Medlen a start, 610 Sports Radio is reporting.

Medlen thrived in that role for Atlanta before Tommy John surgery interrupted his career. He has returned as a reliever and has performed well after a rocky Royals debut. Medlen has allowed just two hits in seven shutout innings over four appearances with six strikeouts.

The right hander went 25-13 as mostly a starter with the Braves in 2012 and 2013.
