Royals pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer experiences setback in rehab

Kyle Zimmer, the right-hander still considered the finest pitching prospect in the Royals’ farm system, suffered a setback in an outing Friday because of soreness in his surgically-repaired right shoulder. The Royals suspended his throwing program, which was supposed to culminate with Zimmer joining Class AA Northwest Arkansas on Sunday. Instead, Zimmer will remain at the Royals’ complex in Arizona.
