Luke Hochevar aims to start throwing in September
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Royals reliever Luke Hochevar, who had Tommy John surgery in March, hopes to start throwing again in September, reports the Kansas City Star. He was cleared to lift weights two weeks ago.

"After I had surgery, I just wanted to get out of the brace," Hochevar told the paper. "Then when I got out of the brace, and I was just moving my arm and doing stuff, then I wanted to start working out. Now that I’m working out, I want to start throwing."
