Amid elbow rehab, Soria visits Royals

KANSAS CITY -- Royals closer Joakim Soria and catcher Manny Pina checked in at Kauffman Stadium this weekend, taking a break from their rehabilitation work at the club's facility in Surprise, Ariz.

Soria, out for the season, is reported as doing well as he recovers from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, which is covered by a protective brace.

Pina, who had right knee surgery, is running and hitting off a tee. He expects to be ready to play by early June.
