07:20 AM ET 10.09 | In Surprise, Ariz., the place lived up to its name on Tuesday. Left-hander Sean Manaea, the Royals' much-prized second pick in the June draft, capped a rehab workout Tuesday afternoon by stepping on a mound for the first time since undergoing hip surgery in June. "That wasn't the plan when we brought him (to the Instructional League) for his rehab work," assistant general manager J.J. Picollo said. "But our (training staff) thought it might be the best thing for him." It wasn't much. Roughly 20 pitches, all fastballs, from a practice mound adjacent to the Frank White Field on the Royals' side of the Surprise Recreation Campus. And yet ... "We think it's a big step," Picollo said. "He'll probably get back on the mound again Friday, and that will be it. His rehab will be over."
