Royals' Luke Hochevar Hoping To Pitch Before All-Star Break

The last time we caught up with Luke Hochevar -- who was placed on the 15-day DL on June 12 -- he had started throwing the ball but not yet from a mound.

On Wednesday, Hochevar hopes to change that by throwing 15-20 pitches off of a mound.

In fact, he hopes to pitch again on rehab assignment before the All-Star break, according to the Kansas City Star.

“If I’m feeling good enough to make a start before the All-Star break, I’d obviously like that,” Hochevar said. “But we’re going to play it safe and make sure I’m 100 percent before I toe the rubber again.”

The All-Star break starts July 12.
