It's getting closer and closer. Kansas City Royals pitcher Gil Meche, who declined shoulder surgery this season, will make his return to the lineup as a reliever.
On Wednesday, the Royals roster will expand to 40 and it's likely that Meche will be included.
Meche is currently in AAA-Omaha on a rehab assignment.
Meche allowed one run and two hits in 4 2/3 innings over three outings at Omaha after choosing not to undergo shoulder surgery, which was deemed necessary to continue his career as a starter.
If you can get it, $11 million for bullpen work isn't bad.
