  • Royals' John McMillon: Sent to Triple-A

    The Royals optioned McMillon to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

    The 26-year-old made his MLB debut last August and allowed one run with an 8:0 K:BB in four appearances before being sidelined by a forearm strain. McMillon jumped straight to the majors for Double-A last season, but it appears he'll head to Triple-A to begin 2024.

  • Royals' John McMillon: Cleared for spring debut

    McMillon (forearm) is scheduled to make a relief appearance in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Anne Rogers of reports.

    McMillon will likely cover an inning Wednesday in what will mark his spring debut. The hard-throwing righty has been eased along during spring training while he works his way back from a forearm strain, but assuming he escapes Wednesday's outing free of setbacks, he should be on track to win a spot in the Royals' Opening Day bullpen. McMillon was impressive over a small sample of big-league action in 2023, striking out eight and allowing one earned run on one hit and no walks over four innings.

  • Royals' John McMillon: Tosses live BP

    McMillon (forearm) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Monday, Anne Rogers of reports.

    McMillon has yet to make his Cactus League debut, but now that he's facing hitters again, he doesn't seem to be far from getting in his first game action of spring training. The 26-year-old right-hander reached the big leagues for the first time last August and struck out eight over four innings of one-run ball out of the Kansas City bullpen before he was shut down for the season with a right forearm strain.

  • Royals' John McMillon: Throwing bullpen Thursday

    McMillon (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Anne Rogers of reports.

    McMillon made four appearances in August for the Royals before getting shut down a forearm strain, but he was throwing off a mound by the end of the season. It seems likely the 26-year-old will be able to go through a normal spring. He allowed one run on a home run and struck out eight over his first four major-league innings last season and could contend for a high-leverage role in 2024.

  • Royals' John McMillon: Throwing off mound

    McMillon (forearm) resumed throwing off the mound on Friday, reports.

    McMillon is progressing well from his right forearm strain and could be ready for a rehab assignment later this month. However, the Royals want to be cautious with their talented young relief arm, so it sounds like they're unlikely to activate him before the end of the season. McMillon has been out since late August.

  • Royals' John McMillon: Placed on 15-day IL

    Kansas City placed McMillon on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a right forearm strain.

    The 25-year-old has posted a 2.25 ERA with eight strikeouts in four major-league innings (four appearances) since getting the call Aug. 16 from Double-A Northwest Arkansas, but he'll be sidelined for at least the next couple of weeks. Taylor Clarke (personal) is returning to the Royals' bullpen in a corresponding move.
