Yost said Barlow likely would piggyback on right-hander Brad Keller's first start as a Royal on Wednesday. Keller likely will have a 60-65-pitch limit.
Memorial Day thoughts Yost said he always thinks of his late father's service to the country on Memorial Day.
"My dad served in the Korean War, and that was kind of a war that you don't really hear too much about," Yost said. "I just got through watching a documentary on Netflix -- it was a two-hour special on the Korean War, and it was extremely interesting to see some of the stuff that he went through and the conditions that he went through. In all the pictures that he has, they were up in the mountains in extreme cold. Snow everywhere. The conditions were unbearable, but you don't even really know until you watch some of this stuff.
"Just the sacrifices I think that all of our servicemen -- from every era, World War II, the Vietnam War the Korean War -- I mean, they've all got their own hardships and heartaches."
Yost said he didn't talk to his father about the Korean War experience.
"He didn't talk about it," Yost said. "And [bench coach] Dale Sveum's dad served in the same war, and Dale's dad wouldn't talk much about it, either. When my dad passed away, we found some mementos from that time, can't really say what they are, but a lot of pictures, too."
