The 38-year old made two rehab starts in that time. He went 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA. He pitched 12 innings and notched eight strikeouts during his rehab assignment.

The six-time All-Star and CY Young Award-winner was listed in the starting lineup for tonight’s matchup against the Oakland Athletics. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. at Kauffman Stadium.
