Mejia is expected to start for the Twins on Saturday against the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The left-hander is sitting at Triple-A Rochester waiting for an official callup after being pulled from Tuesday's start. Mejia had thrown just 33 pitches in an effort to conserve him in case he must make this assignment. Brave deep-league players could deploy the owner of a 5.79 ERA against the scuffling Royals -- emphasis on the word brave.
