    • Royals' Luke Hochevar: Earns 10th hold in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hochevar threw a perfect seventh inning in relief on Thursday, earning his 10th hold. Hochevar has once again emerged as a dominant force in the Royals bullpen, compiling a 2.82 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 22.1 innings this season. The 32-year-old has been particularly good on the road, where he has not allowed a run since April. Hochevar has mainly been used as a set-up to Kelvin Herrera in the eighth and Wade Davis in the ninth, a role that is unlikely to change.

    • Hochevar (elbow) should be available for Monday's game, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports. The Royals held Hochevar out of Sunday's game due to elbow tightness, but apparently he's OK after a day of rest and could be summoned from the Kansas City bullpen if needed by Royals manager Ned Yost.

    • Royals' Luke Hochevar: Day to day with sore elbow
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hochevar was unavailable Sunday due to "elbow tightness," the Kansas City Star reports. "It's more precaution than anything else," manager Ned Yost said. "We want to make sure we don't do anything rash." Hochevar had an issue with his elbow after Friday's outing where he walked two batters. He'll likely be out the next few days to give his elbow time to rest. Hochevar has been outstanding this season with a 2.61 ERA and an 11:3 K:BB ratio in 10.3 innings.

    • Hochevar struck out one and allowed one hit during a shutout inning against Baltimore on Friday. Hochevar is touting a 2.35 ERA with a 0.78 WHIP through 7.2 innings in 2016. He is sporting a career-best 11.74 K/9 early on this season while posting a career-best 1.17 BB/9 on the other end of the spectrum. Even though it has only been nine appearances, the 32-year-old looks as good as ever, holding down one of the middle relief roles for the defending World Series champions.
