Royals put Luke Hochevar in bullpen
Drafted in 2006, Hochevar, who is scheduled to make $4.56 million this season, is 38-59 with a 5.39 ERA. He'll operate as a long reliever and could work back into the rotation, though it's possible the Royals will seek to trade him or offer his release.
The Royals also placed right-hander Guillermo Moscoso on waivers Wednesday. He was claimed in November and was 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in three spring training appearance.
