Vargas gave up one run on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts over four innings against the Dodgers on Tuesday, leaving the left-hander very pleased with his performance, the Kannsas City Star reports.

Infante (shoulder) returned to the field for the first time in 11 days and while the reports were positive, Infante said that he still doesn't feel 100 percent, the Kansas City Star reports. He said he felt no pain, but is still searching for strength. "I need more power," Infante said.

Despite giving up two runs on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts over three innings against the Giants on Friday, Ventura was both upbeat and positive about the outing, the Kansas City Star. "He felt really good even though he gave up two runs," said Bruce Chen, who translated for Ventura. "He felt like he threw a lot of good pitches. He felt like his arm was very good and his offspeed pitches were working well."
