Player Notes
Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reported that the Royals expect Kyle Zimmer (shoulder) to be able to continue with his throwing program this week.

Advice: Zimmer was rated as the No. 23 prospect in baseball by Baseball America prior to the 2014 season, but a variety of arm and shoulder injuries have limited him. He pitched just four and two-thirds innings in rookie ball at Idaho Falls before being shut down. On October 28, he underwent a surgical procedure to repair his right labrum and rotator cuff. He was scheduled for a follow-up look at the shoulder on Monday and assuming it's clean, the Royals expect him to be able to resume a throwing program. If Zimmer is able to build up his strength, the 23-year-old could see minor league action by mid-April.
