Ned Yost media session: September 3

Under the knife

Jason Kendall had extensive surgery today to repair three of the four muscles that attach to the rotator cuff. When doctors got into the shoulder, it was discovered that two of the muscles were completely torn off the bone. Yost said the doctor feels good about the procedure and Kendall will just have to take things month by month. Yost added that this is not something you should rush, and he knows the ever-eager Kendall will have to be reminded daily that he needs to be patient and smart about his recovery.  Kendall should return to Kansas City at some point this weekend.

Starters return

Yost also commented on Brian Bannister and Luke Hochevar’s return to active duty, saying the two will “piggyback” next Tuesday night at Minnesota. Bannister will make the start and Hochevar will follow.  The moves will put Bryan Bullington back in the bullpen.
