Player Notes
Royals general manager Dayton Moore said Thursday that they are looking at Kris Medlen (elbow) as someone who will be able to contribute in the second half in 2015.

Advice: Medlen, who is coming off a second Tommy John surgery this past March, was signed to a two-year, $8.5 million contract with a $10 million mutual option for 2017. The Royals are going to be extra careful about pushing him too soon.

Royals signed RHP Kris Medlen to a two-year, $8.5 million contract with a $10 million mutual option for 2017.

Advice: Atlanta non-tendered Medlen earlier this month to avoid paying him nearly $6 million in 2015 via salary arbitration. He's recovering from a second Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and probably won't be ready by Opening Day for the Royals, but the 29-year-old boasts a 2.95 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 512 2/3 career major league innings. It's a worthwhile risk for Kansas City at only $8.5 million guaranteed.
