Royals P Gil Meche 'Threw The Ball Well' In Rehab Work, Aiming For September Return

Royals pitcher Gil Meche is opting against season-ending surgery and working to return to the Royals by sometime in September.

He pitched off of a mound this week and drew great reviews from manager Ned Yost.

“I thought he looked good last time, and he looked twice as good as last time,” he said. “He had a real hard breaking ball, nice cutter, good fastball. His command was a little bit off, but he threw the ball well.”

We'll see if he can get that September return.
