by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar threw his first batting-practice session of the spring Tuesday and emerged from the outing without any issues, per MLB.com.

"Everything was fine this morning," Yost said. "He felt great."

Yost liked how Hochevar, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, threw in batting practice.

"A good live fastball," Yost said. "Good curve. He looked really good. Just a normal progression for him."

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar (elbow) might start season on DL
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost indicated Monday pitcher Luke Hochevar, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, might start the year on the disabled list. However, he probably won't be on there for long, per The Kansas City Star.

“If he’s not ready for opening day, it’s going to be real soon afterwards," Yost said.

Royals' Luke Hochevar on schedule in recovery from Tommy John
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals reliever Luke Hochevar is on schedule in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to MLB.com.

Hochevar had the surgery last March, but has been able to throw off the mound with no setbacks. He threw 35 pitches off a mound on Saturday, and did the same on Wednesday with no issues. Hochevar is mainly throwing fastballs and change-ups now, but said he'll eventually add breaking balls. "I probably won't be throwing any breaking balls until we get to live BP in a couple weeks," he said. "We're just taking everything very slowly, very cautiously."

While Hochevar said he's not ready to fully cut things loose, he does expect to be ready by opening day. "I'm hopeful, but if it's not the case and I have to start the season [in Triple-A] then that's OK," he said. "I don't want to have to rush things and then have something happen and wind up back at Triple-A anyway."

Hochevar remains about 7-10 days behind the other pitchers on the roster, and his status could determine whether the team carries an extra reliever to begin the season, according to the Kansas City Star.

Hochevar posted a 1.92 ERA over 70 1/3 innings back in 2013.

Royals' Luke Hochevar nearing return from Tommy John surgery
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar has been able to throw off a mound and expects to soon be at the full strength, reports The Kansas City Star.

Hochevar is recovering from Tommy John surgery, which caused him to miss the 2014 season and said he expects to be at full strength once spring training is underway.

"I'm conditioning my arm," Hochevar said. "Once spring training comes around they're going to monitor me for a little while, but once they cut me loose I become a regular guy again."

In 2013, Hochevar produced a 1.92 ERA in 58 games. While Hochevar said he's looking forward to returning, he wants to be cautious with his body.

"Hopefully, I'm ready in two weeks," Hochevar said. "But you never know and I'm not going to put a timetable on it. I'm going to listen to my body. I need to look long term, not just career-wise but season-wise. Me on the shelf is no good. If it takes me an extra two weeks, a month, whatever it is, I need to be mindful of that."
