Royals pitcher Gil Meche continued his recovery from shoulder bursitis with a start in AA NW Arkansas on Wednesday throwing four scoreless innings.
Meche, who was working on a pitch count of 40-60 pitches, threw four scoreless innings, allowing two hits with three walks and three strikeouts. The right-hander threw 69 pitches, 42 for strikes. The three walks speak to Meche's command issues, which are to be expected after not throwing in a competitive situation for almost two full months.
He's still not throwing his breaking ball so there's still some things to figure out but it's a good start considering he hasn't thrown competitively in two months.
