Player Notes
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.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) could rejoin the Royals' rotation later this week.

Advice: Vargas played catch up to 110 feet Saturday and is expected to throw a short bullpen session Wednesday. He might only need one additional 'pen session after that before rejoining the rotation, as he's not expected to go out on a rehab assignment. "He still feels a little stretching sensation in there," manager Ned Yost said Saturday. "He'll be fine." Vargas is just 11 days removed from his projected 3-4 week timetable, so a return later this week would be sooner than expected.

Jason Vargas (appendectomy) is not expected to need a rehab assignment before rejoining the Royals' rotation.

Advice: He's not close to returning, however, as Vargas is only a week removed from a 3-4 week timetable following an appendectomy. The left-hander is not with the Royals on their road trip but has been playing catch.
