Royals pitcher Tim Collins will join Triple-A Omaha Friday to begin his rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.

"He's going to need at least two [appearances] and we'll go from there," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "As soon as he's throwing the ball good again . … But we need to see that, we need to check his arm and make sure it's strong and durable and ready to go. We need to make sure he's commanding his fastball, his curveball and his changeup."

Collins pitched in just two games this season before going on the disabled list with a flexor strain.

News
Royals pitcher Aaron Crow has averaged 92 mph with his fastball this season, well down from his career average of 94.6 mph, but the team isn't concerned with the reduced velocity, the Kansas City Star reports.

"His velocity is down two or three miles an hour," manager Ned Yost said. "But it’s early in the year, and he’s still building up arm strength. They’re still getting their arms underneath them, if you will."

"I feel fine," Crow said. "I think I’ve learned over the last few years, I mean, it’s great when Greg [Holland] can go out there and blow guys away with 96, 97. But there’s times when I was throwing 95, 96, and it just seems like guys pick it up earlier or something. It didn’t have the same ride on it at the end. I think I’ve been more successful when I’m trying to throw sinkers. Instead of trying to blow it by them."

Crow has yet to allow an earned run in seven innings over nine appearances, striking out four and walking three while surrendering two unearned runs.
