Player Notes
Royals placed LHP Jason Vargas on the 15-day disabled list with appendicitis.

Advice: Vargas underwent an appendectomy on Thursday and could be out 3-4 weeks. Bruce Chen seems likely to take his rotation spot. Vargas, 31, owns a 3.31 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 82/29 K/BB ratio in 125 innings this season.

Royals head trainer Nick Kenney said the team is prepared to be without Jason Vargas for three to four weeks.

Advice: It was discovered Wednesday that Vargas needed an emergency appendectomy, and it appears the tam isn't expecting him back before the end of July. Bruce Chen will likely start in his place during his absence.

Jason Vargas needs an emergency appendectomy.

Advice: Bruce Chen is expected to start in his place on Sunday against the Tigers. The All-Star break should allow Vargas to only miss one turn in the Royals' rotation.

Jason Vargas allowed two runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Advice: Vargas kept the Rays off the board until the sixth inning, when an Evan Longoria two-run single did all the damage he would allow. The left-hander walked two while striking out three. It's generally been a good first half for the 31-year-old, as he owns a 3.31 ERA and 1.23 WHIP heading into his last start of the first half against the Tigers on Sunday.
