The last time we heard from Gil Meche he was just missing his 43rd consecutive game on the disabled list and was hoping to get a rehab assignment in the near future.
Per Dick Kaegel of MLB.com, that could come on Wednesday.
Meche, who last pitched on May 25, could pitch as soon as Wednesday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He threw the equivalent of four innings in a batting-practice workout on Friday.
"He bounced back really good today, he feels good," Royals manager Ned Yost said on Saturday.
Yost says his "command's a little off" but he's getting better. Meche said he's ready to get out there to see where he stands in his rehab from shoulder bursitis.
