Royals outfielder Rick Ankiel isn't quite registering the numbers the Royals might've thought he would in his return to his rehab assignment.
Rehabbing outfielder Rick Ankiel went zero for two with a walk Sunday in Class AAA Omaha’s 2-1 loss to Albuquerque. He is three for 20 through six games of his second rehab assignment for a strained right quadriceps muscle suffered April 24.
Ankiel's been a major disappointment this year. He was originally hurt way back in April and has yet to fully come back to the field. It's already the halfway point and he's still struggling with injury. I think the Royals will regret this signing (as if they don't already).
