Player Notes
Jason Vargas (appendectomy) could rejoin the Royals' rotation on Saturday in Oakland.

Advice: Vargas threw a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday with no issues. "He threw four innings, 15 pitches each inning. He had much more life on his pitches, much better command on his pitches, so he looked really good," manager Ned Yost said. Yost said "we'll see" when asked about Vargas starting Saturday, but it sounds like the club is leaning that way. We'll know for sure in a day or two.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) will throw a simulated game on Saturday.

Advice: Vargas didn't feel quite right during a bullpen session Wednesday, so the Royals are pumping the brakes on him a bit rather than activating him to start Sunday. He's not expected to need a rehab assignment, so Vargas could conceivably rejoin the rotation sometime next week.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) is unlikely to start Sunday.

Advice: Vargas still doesn't feel quite right after undergoing an appendectomy in early July. The left-hander will aim to return to the Kansas City rotation late next week.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Monday.

Advice: Vargas underwent an appendectomy less than two weeks ago, but he's making quick progress. In fact, there's a chance he could be activated to start as soon as Sunday against the Indians.
