Jeffress OK in wake of comebacker

KANSAS CITY -- Royals right-hander Jeremy Jeffress took a hard shot off his right elbow area on Sunday, but came through it all right.

"I feel good, actually," Jeffress said on Monday. "It numbed it for a second, but I immediately felt it after that. We iced it last night. It's back to normal."

In the Blue Jays' ninth inning, Jeffress was drilled so hard by Jose Bautista's liner that the ball bounced to third baseman Mike Moustakas in plenty of time for him to throw to first base for the out.

Jeffress stayed in the game and faced two more batters, giving up a double and a walk before being relieved.
