KCKansas City Royals
2014 Record: 73-58
#44 Luke Hochevar
Jun 23: Hochevar (elbow) hopes to resume throwing in September, the Kansas City Star reports. Hochevar tore his UCL in March which resulted in Tommy John surgery, but he's been cleared to lift weights and perform other strengthening exercises. Throwing is next on his to-do list, although he's still a few months away. He'll be a free agent following the 2014 season, but will likely have to settle for a short term, low-risk deal due to the recent injury. The 30-year-old has already proven himself as a successful reliever in this league, as he posted a 1.92 ERA and 0.83 WHIP over 70.1 innings last season. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to return to his old form.
