Out since April 21 with what the Royals termed a left rib stress reaction, Greg Holland began a minor-league rehab assignment at Double-A yesterday.

Holland allowed one run in one inning, throwing 19 pitches, and thanks to technology Royals manager Ned Yost watched the outing live on MiLB.tv.

Dick Kaegel of MLB.com reports that the right-hander’s fastball topped out at 94-95 miles per hour, and both Holland and Yost seemed generally pleased with how things went.

Once he’s ready Holland will return to a setup role in front of closer Jonathan Broxton, who beat him out for ninth-inning duties after Joakim Soria went down in spring training. He had a 1.80 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 60 innings setting up Soria as a rookie last season.
