Holland aiming to return to Royals next week

KANSAS CITY -- Greg Holland is gearing up to return to the Royals' bullpen late next week. He's due to make injury rehabilitation appearances on Tuesday and Thursday for Double-A Northwest Arkansas and might be back after that.

Holland, out since April 21 with a rib injury, threw in batting practice with game situations on Saturday.

"He looked really good," manager Ned Yost said. "He had good life on his pitches. His command was off a little bit, but he had good velocity, good action on his breaking stuff. He threw 25 pitches with no after-effects."
