Tillo (elbow) was added to the 40-man roster Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

With Tillo likely to miss the entire 2021 season recovering from August 2020 Tommy John surgery, he will be easy to stash on the 60-day injured list now that he is on the 40-man roster. The Royals think the left-handed Tillo could be electric in a bullpen role as early as 2022.
