Luke Hochevar: Contract option declined
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hochevar's 2017 option has been declined by the Royals, making him a free agent, the Kansas City Star reports.

The Royals reportedly have interest in bringing Hochevar back, but for significantly less than the $7 million he would have been due under the option. Hochevar, the top pick in the 2006 first-year player draft, has pitched well out of the bullpen in recent seasons but comes with significant health concerns. He's had Tommy John surgery and missed the final two months of 2016 after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery.

Royals' Luke Hochevar: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hochevar (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

This was a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for prospect Hunter Dozier. Hochevar was already ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery earlier this month, but with any luck, he should be good to go for spring training.

Royals' Luke Hochevar: Has thoracic outlet surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hochevar (shoulder) underwent thoracic outlet surgery Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Hochevar underwent the procedure in St. Louis on Tuesday and will now likely be shut down for the next 2-3 months before setting out on a rehab program. While recovery times can extend up to six months, the 32-year-old is expected to be ready for Spring Training next season.

Royals' Luke Hochevar: Will likely need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hochevar (shoulder) will likely require surgery to deal with his thoracic outlet syndrome, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Hochevar reported numbness in his fingers recently and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition caused by compression of a neurovascular bundle in the shoulder region. He saw a specialist in recent days and the first diagnosis is season-ending thoracic outlet surgery. The veteran relief man will get a second opinion but it seems highly likely that he'll undergo the knife and will miss the rest of the 2016 season.

Royals' Luke Hochevar: Placed on DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hochevar was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday, retroactive to July 25, with symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.

Hochevar has been reporting numbness in his fingers recently according to manager Ned Yost and was subsequently diagnosed with the shoulder condition. He is expected to see a specialist in the near future to get a more complete evaluation and figure out a rehab plan. The 32-year-old will be eligible to return from the DL on Aug. 9 but it remains to be seen if he'll be ready by then. Brooks Pounders was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to shore up Kansas City's bullpen in Hochevar's absence.
