Royals’ Luke Hochevar to have Tommy John surgery

The realization dawned on Luke Hochevar on Thursday afternoon inside a doctor’s office in Los Angeles. Neal ElAttrache, the Dodgers team physician, presented Hochevar with three options for the partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The third option was the only realistic one. Hochevar will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery, which robs the team of a dynamic reliever and could mark the end of Hochevar’s Royals career.
