Hochevar was unavailable Sunday due to "elbow tightness," the Kansas City Star reports. "It's more precaution than anything else," manager Ned Yost said. "We want to make sure we don't do anything rash."

Hochevar had an issue with his elbow after Friday's outing where he walked two batters. He'll likely be out the next few days to give his elbow time to rest. Hochevar has been outstanding to open the year, notching a 2.61 ERA and 11:3 K:BB in 10.3 innings.
