The Plan for Hochevar
Here's a quick update, thanks to the Official Kansas City Royals site. The site is reporting that GM Dayton Moore is planning on getting Luke to one of their Class-A affiliates once he's signed. It's sounding like Hochevar won't be rushed up, which is probably a smart decision given how little baseball he has played this last year. When talking about the independent league he signed with for the spring, the level of competition was compared to Class-A, borderline Double-A, so assuming Luke can keep it up once he signs, I would expect him to move up to Double-A quickly.
