And then Ned Yost displayed some pessimism that he would be ready.

Going full circle, the Royals now feel he may be able to make his next start, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.

Royals say RHP Anthony Lerew had great bullpen workout in testing bruised ribs abd biceps. Better chance now that he starts Sunday at NYY.

Yost had talked on Wednesday about possibly placing Lerew on the disabled list but if this report comes to fruition he may not be going anywhere.
