Injured Royals Pitcher Gil Meche Throws 40 Pitches Off The Mound With No Pain

Royals pitcher Gil Meche has been on the disabled list since May 29 (retroactive to May 26) with right shoulder bursitis. The goal, we've been told, is to get him back shortly after the All-Star break, which starts on July 14.

He's making progress each day, according to the Kansas City Star.

Royals starter Gil Meche threw a 40-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday off a mound and reported no pain afterward.

Meche started throwing off of a mound last week. Previously he felt some discomfort throwing on the mound but apparently not anymore.
