The Kansas City Royals activated Kris Medlen from the disabled list Tuesday after he recovered from Tommy John surgery, according to the Kansas City Star. Medlen was stretched out as a starter during his rehab assignment, but he will return to the big club as a long man and rotation depth after making 31 starts with the Atlanta Braves in 2013. "I had a pretty good time this time going through it compared to last," Medlen told ESPN, referring to the fact that he underwent the surgery when he was with the Braves in 2010. "With this good of a team and this good of people to be around, it's made it a lot easier and watching some really good baseball, it's got me pretty fired up to come back." Medlen has a 2.95 ERA with 434 strikeouts in 512.2 career innings.

Medlen (elbow) has transferred his rehab assignment to Double-A Northwest Arkansas, and will pitch Wednesday.

Medlen has progressed to the late steps of his rehab from his second Tommy John surgery, but hasn't had a lot of success in his rehab assignment. The 29-year-old hasn't pitched in a major league game since 2013, but that could come at some point in the near future. His role with the Royals could be different, however, as the club already sports six in its current rotation.
