Kansas City Royals SP Kris Medlen (elbow) will begin throwing against hitters Monday, May 4.
Fantasy Tip: Medlen is recoving from a 2014 Tommy John surgery, and the organization expects him to have a role in the second half of this season. Whether that is as part of the rotation or out of the bullpen remains to be seen. Medlen has been a nice fantasy asset in the past, so he is worth monitoring as he works his way back. You can likely ignore him in the majority of formats at this point, though.
