Royals | Luke Hochevar found mechanical flaw

Kansas City Royals SP Luke Hochevar, who is battling for one of the last spots in the starting rotation, thinks he found a mechanical flaw after viewing film of his 32 starts from last year and many starts from 2011. Hochevar admits that he tried to do too much when the game was on the line. "When I'd step on the gas," he said, "my front side would fly open, and my ball would get flat. The thing is, if my front side stays in, I can step on the gas and (be effective). My front side stays in. I keep my angle. I don't get flat. The hitter doesn't pick me up early." Pitching coach Dave Eiland wants Hochevar to limit his repertoire in order to tighten the muscle-memory mechanics of his best pitches.
