He had a solid outing yesterday against the Rangers and looks to be ready for the majors but the Royals don't want to throw him in to a starting roll yet. I suspect he'll be starting by the end of the season depending on how he looks against major league hitters. Mainly, the Royals don't want to make the same mistakes with Hochevar as they did with Grienke.
I'll dispute that first statement. Sickels - B, BP - 72, BA - 63, MiLB - 40 (the highest I've seen). I agree that he will probably see some action in the second half. Not super high on him.
