The Royals made the move before Monday night's game against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Medlen will begin in the Royals' bullpen, although that could change later in the season. Kansas City signed him to a two-year contract in December. Medlen went 10-1 as a reliever and starter for Atlanta in 2012, then went 15-12 while making 31 starts in 2013. He had elbow surgery in March 2014 and missed the whole season. Yost said he would not use the 29-year-old Medlen on back-to-back days as a reliever.
