    • Hochevar (shoulder) will likely require surgery to deal with his thoracic outlet syndrome, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Hochevar reported numbness in his fingers recently and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition caused by compression of a neurovascular bundle in the shoulder region. He saw a specialist in recent days and the first diagnosis is season-ending thoracic outlet surgery. The veteran relief man will get a second opinion but it seems highly likely that he'll undergo the knife and will miss the rest of the 2016 season.

    • Royals' Luke Hochevar: Placed on DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hochevar was placed on the DL with an undisclosed injury, retroactive to July 25. It's yet to be revealed what the nature of the injury is but it could have occurred during his last outing against Texas on July 24. The 32-year-old has been a productive relief man for the Royals, compiling a 3.86 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over 37.1 innings of work. In a corresponding roster move, Brooks Pounders was recalled from Triple-A Omaha.

    • 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.
