|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/20/15) The Royals activated pitcher Kris Medlen from the 60-day disabled list, the team announced on Monday.
Medlen hasn't pitched in the majors this year as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. He'll be in uniform for Monday's game.
To make room on the roster, the team optioned pitcher Yohan Pino to Triple-A Omaha.

|(7/17/15) Royals manager Ned Yost said pitcher Kris Medlen likely won't be activated until Monday and he will pitch out of the bullpen when he is reinstated, reports The Kansas City Star.
Medlen has not pitched this season as he returns from Tommy John surgery. He tossed seven scoreless innings during a rehab start Wednesday at Double-A.
Royals still mulling role for pitcher Kris Medlen
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/16/15) Royals general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday the team hasn't decided yet if pitcher Kris Medlen, who is nearing a return from Tommy John surgery, will start or pitch in relief upon his activation from the disabled list.
"It's a fluid situation, obviously," Moore said, per The Kansas City Star.
The right-hander was outstanding in his latest rehab start Wednesday, tossing seven scoreless innings for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He is 1-1 with a 3.56 ERA through six rehab starts.
Royals SP Kris Medlen throws a three-hitter in latest rehab start
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/15/15) Royals right-hander Kris Medlen was excellent in his latest rehab start on Wednesday. Making the start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Medlen tossed seven shutout innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four. He threw 94 pitches with 61 going for strikes.
Medlen is trying to make a comeback from Tommy John surgery. There is still no clear timetable for Medlen's return to the big-league club. He hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since 2013.
Royals SP Kris Medlen to make next rehab start at Double-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/15/15) Royals starting pitcher Kris Medlen will make his next rehab start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday. Medlen made his first two rehab starts with the Naturals before his last three outings were for Triple-A Omaha.
Medlen has gone at least 5 2/3 innings and thrown at least 81 pitches in each of his last two rehab starts. He struck out seven over 5 2/3 innings in his last outing for Omaha.
The right-hander, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery last year, is 1-1 with a 4.63 ERA through five rehab starts. He has 16 strikeouts to three walks in 23 1/3 innings.
|2014 summary: Eased back into action after a lengthy rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery in 2012, Kris Medlen had since become a mainstay at the top of the Braves rotation and in Fantasy lineups. But that came to an abrupt end last spring when an MRI sent him back to the operating room for a second helping of the procedure.|
Playing time status: The Braves non-tendered Medlen in the offseason, but he drew considerable interest before signing a two-year deal with the Royals, which should give you some reason for optimism. Then again, Chris Capuano is the most notable pitcher to come back from a second Tommy John surgery, which doesn't say much. You won't see Medlen in a big-league uniform until midseason, if at all.
2015 outlook: Medlen is a big question mark heading into the new season. The last time we saw him, he was going 9-3 with a 2.38 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in the second half of 2013, demonstrating excellent control and enough strikeout potential for it to set him apart. But he has a new elbow now, so you can't assume anything. He's worth a flier late in AL-only leagues, but that's it.
