Royals Pitcher Luke Hochevar Has A Good MRI, Will Be 'Getting After It' Soon

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar has been on the disabled list since June 12 for a sprained right elbow. The exact timetable on his return isn't quite clear but Friday night manager Ned Yost said he received a positive MRI and appears ready to move on with his rehab.

Via the Star:

"We did it just to be sure we're on track and the preliminary readings were really good, so we're ready to start forward on him, too," manager Ned Yost said.

"With this MRI, they ended up shooting dye in his elbow, so it's going to take a couple days to get that dye and that fluid out of there and once that fluid's out of there, he'll be back getting after it again."

Per Yost's words, it appears the Royals pitcher will be "getting after it" next week. I imagine that means a rehab assignment. He's already been out for over a month.
