Royals place SP Jason Vargas on DL with UCL tear
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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.
