Brad Keller is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday with Triple-A Omaha.
Keller has been on the 15-day IL since mid-May with a right shoulder impingement. He will likely need at least a couple of rehab starts before he can return to the Royals starting rotation.
Royals pitcher Brad Keller is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Thursday as he rehabs right shoulder impingement syndrome.
Keller hasn't pitched since walking eight in a May 15 outing against the Padres but appears to be progressing toward a rehab assignment. The 27-year-old worked to a 4.36 ERA in nine starts but a 5.72 FIP, 6.67 SIERA, and a monstrous 19.9% BB% combine to suggest he was extremely lucky to keep the damage to a minimum.
Brad Keller allowed three hits and four walks while striking out four batters across five innings of work, earning his fourth win of the season as the Royals routed the White Sox 9-1 on Wednesday.
Keller has been inconsistent this season, posting a 4.31 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP with a 0.91 strikeout-to-walk ratio across eight starts. However, he was able to limit the damage in this one and will look to build on this outing in his next start.
Brad Keller struggled on the mound for the Royals Friday night, allowing seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits while also walking four and striking out one over 4 1/3 innings in a 12-8 loss to the Athletics.
Keller has cooled off after a solid start to the season for the Royals, allowing three or more runs in three of his last four starts for the club. The right-hander will look to turn things around for fantasy managers, posting a less than stellar 0.89 K/BB ratio to go along with a 4.67 ERA in seven starts (2-3) on the mound so far this season.
Brad Keller lasted 5 1/3 innings on the mound for the Royals Saturday, allowing one run on six hits while also walking five and striking out four in a 3-2 win over the Twins.
Keller is fighting through command issues on the mound of late for the Royals, walking five or more batters in each of his last three starts for the club. The right-hander has been steady despite the recent control issues, carrying a 3.56 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 24 strikeouts in six starts (2-2) on the mound so far this season.
