Royals | Ankle injury forces Luke Hochevar out

Kansas City Royals SP Luke Hochevar (ankle) suffered an ankle sprain and had to leave his start Thursday, July 5, but Hochevar said he would be fine for his next start. "If I had another start to make before the All-Star break, I wouldn't see myself missing it," Hochevar said. "It's stiff and it's tender, and it bothers me to push off the rubber, but I think it'll be fine." 1B Eric Hosmer booted Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus' grounder with two outs in the fifth inning, prompting Hochevar to accelerate rapidly to cover first base. As he and Rasmus hit the bag, Hochevar rolled his ankle.
