Royals right-handed starter Luke Hochevar, who sprained his elbow in his last start, was put on the disabled list Wednesday. The move was retroactive to June 12, and the Royals hope he'll miss only two starts.
Right-hander Anthony Lerew was brought up from triple-A Omaha and will start in Larew's spot Thursday against the Astros. Larew was 5-3 with a 2.84 ERA for Omaha. To make room for Larew on the 40-man roster, the Royals put left-hander John Parrish on release waivers.
Hochevar is 5-4 in 13 starts with a 4.96 ERA.
