Royals P Luke Hochevar Hopes To Return In About Three Weeks

Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar is hoping to get back in the rotation by the end of the month.

He threw 20 pitches from a mound on Thursday during rehab work. If he can continue throwing more, he'll be given a rehab assignment in the minors.

“I’m preparing to get my pitch count up,” Hochevar said. “Every thing’s coming along great. I’m throwing now pain free. It feels good. That’s all I can ask for.”

First he's gotta add to his total number of pitches. Then he's gotta throw a simulated game. So there's still some question whether he'll make his return.
