Royals P Gil Meche Nearing Rehab Assignment

Royals pitcher Gil Meche has been out of action since going on the disabled list May 29. The Royals recently transferred him to the 60-day DL which would put his return at the end of July.

He's been throwing, and feeling good recently, he says.

"Everything went well the last time I threw in Chicago on Sunday," Meche said. "I took the last few days off so my body feels pretty good. [On Friday,] I'll simulate a game with a few hitters and go four innings of that. That's all, just keep moving."

If all goes well after his next throwing session, he'll head to the minor leagues for a rehab assignment.
