Hillman Interview: Meche could be back on Thursday

Gil Meche

Royals manager Trey Hillman says if everything goes according to plan, look for Royals starter Gil Meche to make a scheduled start on Thursday in the third game of the three-game series in Minnesota (August 11-13).  “We’ll see how things go, but as of right now, we are looking at him going in that third game up in Minnesota.  He says he feels good, and we think he is ready to come back.  We will re-evaluate after the day off on Monday and see where he is.”

Alex Gordon

Alex Gordon is not in the lineup today against the Oakland Athletics and, according to Hillman, after a night game that is not something we should be expecting.  “He’s not ready for that, his body isn’t capable of healing up as fast at the present moment.  It is going to be a while before Alex can play an entire three-game series and a day game after a night game.  He’s getting there, it’s just not in the cards right now, he’s doing everything possible but his body needs to rest.”
