Royals P Gil Meche Has Elbow Soreness Unrelated To Shoulder Injury

Sigh...

The last time we heard from Royals pitcher Gil Meche he was increasing his output in bullpen sessions hoping for a return after the All-Star break.

The most recent report indicates that there was a slight setback. Meche experienced elbow soreness on Friday. This is not related to the shoulder bursitis that landed him on the DL in the first place.

Shoulder + elbow = not a good long-term option.

Meche is scheduled to throw a full bullpen session on Sunday, according to the Associated Press.
