Royals' Luke Hochevar still expected to begin season on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday he is still expecting pitcher Luke Hochevar (elbow) to begin the season on the disabled list, per The Kansas City Star.

"Odds are, he's going to start the year on the DL," Yost said. "But we haven't cemented that decision yet."

Royals' Luke Hochevar (elbow) could continue rehab in minors
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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."

Luke Hochevar may start season on Royals' DL
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Royals reliever Luke Hochevar pitched a perfect seventh inning on Monday, throwing 11 strikes in 14 pitches. 

Now he'll wait. 

The Royals are taking it slowly as Hochevar returns from Tommy John surgery, and that means plenty of rest between appearances. Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reported that Hochevar will get three days, off following Monday's appearance, a schedule that makes it unlikely that he'll be ready by the start of the season.

Royals bringing pitcher Luke Hochevar along slowly
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Royals are being extra cautious with pitcher Luke Hochevar this spring, reports MLB.com. Hochevar made his first appearance of the spring Thursday, going one inning and recording one walk and a strikeout. He will not pitch again until at least Monday.

"We're not going to rush anything with him," manager Ned Yost said. "We'll just have to see how it goes with Luke. Only his body will be able to tell us if he [will make the 25-man roster]."

Royals' Luke Hochevar (elbow) makes spring debut Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar appeared in a game Thursday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last March, walking one and striking out one in an inning of work.

"I felt like my fastball command was there," Hochevar said after the outing, per MLB.com. "The ball felt good coming out of my hand. My offspeed stuff was a tick late, but that will come. Some of the adrenaline was going, and those are more feel pitches that will come."

Hochevar was asked what percentage he was able to let loose with his pitches and replied, "I'm not good with percentages. But I stepped on the gas pretty good. I didn't feel anything in my elbow that would make me step back. It felt good. I applied as much gas as I thought was necessary."

Hochevar is not a lock to be ready for action by the beginning of the regular season.
