Royals agree to terms with Hochevar on a one-year contract

Hochevar2010.jpgOn Wednesday night, the Royals agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Luke Hochevar on a one-year contract for 2011, avoiding arbitration.  Consistent with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The 27-year-old Hochevar was 6-6 with a 4.81 ERA in 18 games, including 17 starts, for the Royals in 2010.  He missed two and a half months with a right elbow strain before returning to the big league club in September.  The Royals’ first-overall selection in the 2006 June Free Agent Draft is 19-32 with a 5.60 ERA in 69 career Major League appearances, including 65 starts.
