Tupman could return to Royals in 2009

Dr. Steve Joyce, the Royals' team surgeon, operated on Tupman's right shoulder. According to Tupman, it was "just a cleanup" of a little tear in the rotator cuff and some labrum damage. However, Picollo said, the Royals want to re-sign him, and Tupman said he "mostly likely" will do that. "My situation is I didn't have a great year [at Triple-A Omaha] -- and I'm injured -- so there's really not much of a market out there right now for me," Tupman said. The Royals' ninth-round Draft pick in 2002, Tupman has spent his entire pro career in the organization and feels comfortable, and vice versa.
