Paulino to rejoin Double-A club, pitch Sunday

MINNEAPOLIS -- Right-handed pitcher Felipe Paulino accompanied the Royals to Minnesota, but he'll be leaving the team to rejoin Double-A Northwest Arkansas and pitch on Sunday night against Corpus Christi.

That will mark the resumption of his Minor League rehabilitation assignment, halted by back stiffness. He pitched one game previously, throwing five shutout innings. Paulino underwent Tommy John surgery last July 3.
