Royals P Gil Meche Moving Along, Throws 60 Pitches Without Pain

Gil Meche is making strides, according to manager Ned Yost.

The last time we heard from Meche, he was tweaking his throwing motion to relieve himself of some pain.

Per the Kansas City Star, he's still eyeing a post-All-Star Game return:

Right-hander Gil Meche experienced no day-after problems following a 60-pitch bullpen workout Monday and is now scheduled to throw live batting practice this weekend as the next step in his recovery from bursitis in his right shoulder.

"He’s made great strides," Yost said. "It won’t be a (simulated) game because that’s ramping it up (too much). If he passes that test, the next test will be a sim game or two, and then out (on a rehab assignment)."
