      Royals activate P Luke Hochevar from DL, option P Finnegan

      The Royals have activated pitcher Luke Hochevar from the 15-day disabled list, the team announced on Thursday. To make room for him, the Royals optioned left-hander Brandon Finnegan to Double-A. Hochevar missed the entire 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He was quite dominant in 2013, when he recorded a 1.92 ERA over 70 1/3 innings while pitching out of the Royals' bullpen. The Royals will look for Hochevar to bolster what is already a very deep bullpen. They just got closer Greg Holland back from the disabled list, and other pitchers like Wade Davis, Kelvin Herrera and Ryan Madson have helped the Royals' relief core pitch to a colletive 1.57 ERA this season. For his part, Hochevar is eager to get back to a big-league mound, according to MLB.com

      Royals' Hochevar will pitch for Triple-A team on rehab assignment

      Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar (elbow) will pitch for Triple-A Omaha during his rehab assignment, according to The Kansas City Star. Hochevar, who is coming off Tommy John surgery in 2014, isn't expected to come off the disabled list until sometime in May. "I think that to be able to come up and to be ready at the big-league level, I think there's a couple steps that I still need to take," Hochevar said. "The majority of it has to do with recovery and how I'm responding to my outings. "Even now, I'm pitching with two days in between. That's got to get moved to one day in between. And then be able to respond, be able to repeat my stuff. And then that's got to be able to be moved to back-to-back days, and be able to repeat my stuff. "For instance, in spring, I went from three days to two days. It felt great. But with that adjustment, it took me doing that two times to have my stuff reciprocate. I felt fine. There's no issues there. It's just a matter of getting my arm back in shape and getting it used to bouncing back."

      Royals' Luke Hochevar (elbow) could continue rehab in minors

      Royals manager Ned Yost said Sunday that pitcher Luke Hochevar could begin the season on the disabled list and continue his rehab from Tommy John surgery in the minors, MLB.com reports. "He's throwing the ball great, but we're still being real guarded with him," Yost said. "He's throwing every four days. I don't know if he'll break [camp] with us. He may need to get a couple of more outings under his belt. We'll just get there and see where we're at." Hochevar has made three one-inning appearances as he continues to work his way back from last March's surgery. "If it takes me a little longer, a couple of more weeks when the season starts, I'm willing to trade that to not have any setbacks," Hochevar said. "It's a long season." Despite the uncertainty about Hochevar's availability for the start of the season, Yost has liked what he's seen from the pitcher. "He's got his fastball back up to 94 [mph]. His curveball has been unbelievably good," Yost said. "He's only a year out [from surgery] on the 18th. Where he's at is amazing to me, being a year out, throwing the way he's throwing and feeling the way that he's feeling."
