LUKE HOCHEVAR RUMORS

Luke Hochevar out for the 2014 season, will have Tommy John surgery

Starter? Reliever? Hochevar knows it's out of his hands

Royals accept Reality, Move Hochevar to Pen

by John Viril— This morning, Royals manager Ned Yost announced that Luke Hochevar was no longer part of the competition for no. 5 starter and will be moved to the pen. At long last, the team has accepted that former no. 1 overall pick Hochevar is not a starter in major league baseball. Finally, they have accepted reality. This small dose of common sense bodes well for the success...
