KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)
Royals manager Ned Yost said Mendoza came in Tuesday with strep throat and was sent to the doctor. Mendoza is 7-9 with a 4.50 ERA this season.
The Royals' revamped rotation has left-hander Bruce Chen starting Wednesday and right-hander Jeremy Guthrie on Thursday. With the Royals off Monday, the two will be moved up a day and working with their normal four days' rest between starts.
