Royals | Luke Hochevar has simplified approach with huge results

Kansas City Royals SP Luke Hochevar picked up his second career shutout while striking out eight batters Monday, June 25, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Manager Ned Yost and the coaching staff tried to convince him to simplify his approach, and it is starting to pay off. "He was phenomenal," manager Ned Yost said. "The results have been dramatically improved since he got back to his three core pitches. He's starting to show exactly what he can do." Hochevar pared down his arsenal to a four-seam fastball, curveball and changeup. Hochevar had been 0-4 at home this season.
