Player Notes
Jason Vargas (elbow) is scheduled to throw a simulated game on Friday.

Advice: Vargas made it through another bullpen session Tuesday without issue. If his simulated game goes smoothly on Friday, the left-hander could be cleared to rejoin the Royals' starting rotation next week. He has been out since May 6 with a flexor strain in his left elbow.

Jason Vargas (elbow) threw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Advice: It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since being diagnosed with a left flexor tendon strain. Vargas is eligible to return from the disabled list on Friday, although it's unclear whether he might have a shot to return at that time. Danny Duffy's spot in the rotation looks to be the most vulnerable.

Jason Vargas (elbow) played catch Friday for the second straight day.

Advice: It's the first bit of throwing he's done since being diagnosed with a left flexor tendon strain. Vargas is hoping to be cleared to throw off a mound early next week. The left-hander and the Royals still seem optimistic about his recovery, but flexor tendon strains often wind up leading to surgery.
