Kendall hoping for May return to Royals
KANSAS CITY -- Catcher Jason Kendall is eyeing mid-May or perhaps June to return to the Royals' lineup. Admittedly getting "antsy," he's still strengthening his right shoulder at Kauffman Stadium, aiming toward a Minor League rehabilitation assignment.

"I'm close," said Kendall, who had surgery on the shoulder in September. "It's hard for me to sit here. We're playing good, so that makes it a lot easier."

Although he wanted an earlier return, Kendall seems reconciled to making certain his shoulder is ready for everyday play so that he won't have to be shut down because of unexpected soreness.

"I'm going to take it easy and have patience and I don't have much of that," he said. "It's definitely a test."
