Kansas City Royals hurler, Luke Hochevar (SP, KC), will have to undergo Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow. Earlier this week, a sprain was revealed in the 30-year-old's right elbow. After several years as a starter, Hochevar had a successful campaign as a reliever in 2013, going 5-2 with a 1.92 ERA in 58 appearances with the Royals. He was slated to battle for the fifth starter's job in training camp. This serious injury means that you can cross him on your lists on draft day, not that he was supposed to have any fantasy relevance this season.
