Royals P Luke Hochevar Is 'Symptom-Free', Will Play Catch Soon

On the same day we hear Gil Meche could return after the All-Star break, there's some good news on another Royals pitcher.

Royals manager Ned Yost said things are going well with Luke Hochevar, who was placed on the 15-day DL this week.

"Yesterday he was symptom-free and felt much, much better and we're to the stage where we're going to have him playing catch in the next day or so," Yost said.

He was placed on the DL retroactively on June 12.

He's still expected to miss two starts.
