 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -The Kansas City Royals optioned pitcher Luke Hochevar, the first pick in the 2006 amateur draft, to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.
Hochevar was 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three spring training games, allowing seven hits and two runs in eight innings. But he had not pitched since March 13.
Last September, he was 0-1 with a 2.13 ERA in four outings, including one start.
With the transaction, the Royals have 43 players in camp, including 21 pitchers.
