Parrish still not ready to pitch

KANSAS CITY -- Left-handed reliever John Parrish, who has rotator cuff inflammation, was eligible to come off the disabled list on Tuesday but he's not ready.

However, the report was the inflammation was reduced and he's been free and easy in his throwing program. No estimate, though, on when he might return.

Center fielder Rick Ankiel's right quad strain was reported improving and the Royals are hopeful he can return when he's eligible next Tuesday.
