Royals Pitcher Gil Meche Still Not 100%

Gil Meche is eligible to come off the disabled list but he's not ready just yet, he said after a recent throwing session.

"I'm throwing really good on flat ground, but when I'm on the mound, I'm doing something different mechanically with my arm slot," Meche said. "It's almost as if I'm going a little bit higher.

"When I throw on the mound, they make me think about it right before I am about to throw, being as low as I can be [with the arm slot] and I feel like I am side-arming it. They say I'm not. They want to videotape it so I can see it and I get comfortable."

The most recent reports predict a post-All-Star break return for Meche because of the bursitis in his shoulder.
