Gil Meche Coming Soon To Kansas City Royals Bullpen

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.
