The plan is for Sweeney to DH tonight in Omaha for the Royals Triple-A affiliate, take a day off, then DH for Omaha Friday through Monday. Royals manager Buddy Bell said today that Sweeney could be activated as soon as next Tuesday. But given how cautious they've been with him so far I'd be tempted to bet on later next week.

ROYALS REPORT: Mike Sweeney was 2-for-3 with a double and a 2-run homer last night in the 3rd game of the Omaha leg of his rehab assignment. Sweeney, who has belted 4 home runs in 9 rehab games between Burlington, Wichita and Omaha, also walked twice Friday and flied out to the right field warning track in his last at-bat.

If you can store him on a DL spot with no risk he's certainly worth a pickup.

Sweeney might DH tonight against Boston
By SAM MELLINGER
The Kansas City Star

Mike Sweeney finished his 11-game rehab assignment with Class AAA Omaha and left the team for Kansas City.

Sweeney could join the Royals as early as today, joining the lineup as the designated hitter for the start of the team’s three-game series against Boston. He went 11 for 35 with four home runs and three doubles in rehab stints at Class A Burlington, Class AA Wichita and Omaha.

Omaha manager Mike Jirschele, who had Sweeney for five games, said he believed Sweeney was ready to play in Kansas City. Sweeney has missed 88 games because of a bulging disk in his back.

“He looked healthy,” Jirschele said. “He swung the bat good. They pitched him tough here, of course. They were really working around him. He looked healthy, he ran good, didn’t have any problems.”
