Kansas City Royals RP Luke Hochevar (elbow) will need to have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, and he'll miss all of the 2014 season. Subsequent tests showed that Hochevar's ulnar collateral ligament may be as much as 65 percent torn. He had suffered a 20 to 45 percent tear in his UCL in 2010 and avoided the surgery. Manager Ned Yost said the surgery is expected to take place in the next two weeks. General manager Dayton Moore said the team will likely fill the bullpen void from within.

Kansas City Royals SP Luke Hochevar (elbow) has been shut down after an MRI exam showed he had a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Manager Ned Yost said the best-case scenario would be that Hochevar returns by the end of May. Hochevar will rest for two to three weeks before starting his recovery program. He first felt something in his elbow during his outing Monday, March 3.
Fantasy Tip: This will open up a spot in the bullpen for the majority of the first half of the season. If Yordano Ventura doesn't lock up a spot in the rotation, it seems like a lock that he'll at least be on the roster in a relief capacity now.
