Royals activate P Luke Hochevar from DL, option P Finnegan
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/7/15) The Royals have activated pitcher Luke Hochevar from the 15-day disabled list, the team announced on Thursday. To make room for him, the Royals optioned left-hander Brandon Finnegan to Double-A.
Hochevar missed the entire 2014 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He was quite dominant in 2013, when he recorded a 1.92 ERA over 70 1/3 innings while pitching out of the Royals' bullpen.
The Royals will look for Hochevar to bolster what is already a very deep bullpen. They just got closer Greg Holland back from the disabled list, and other pitchers like Wade Davis, Kelvin Herrera and Ryan Madson have helped the Royals' relief core pitch to a colletive 1.57 ERA this season.
For his part, Hochevar is eager to get back to a big-league mound, according to MLB.com
