Was sent to AAA today.

He'll be up at some point this year, but will probably have no impact until 2009 at the earliest.

The 24 HR in 152 minor league innings last year is a red flag that simply cannot be ignored. The K/IP also dropped in his journey from Double-A to Triple-A. I'd agree with Slyke that Hochevar isn't ready yet, though that doesn't mean the Royals won't rush him up the ladder again and stick him in the rotation come June.

Has not been overly impressive in his two minor league seasons. Doesn't appear he will be ready for the Royals in 2008 (don't be fooled by the 2.13 ERA in his 12 inning stint in KC last year) so expect him to start the year in Omaha. 2009 looks more realistic for Hochevar making any roto impact. Pass this year.

The glass is half full? Rating got better as he climbed the ladder.

The glass half empty? K/W and K/IP went down as he climbed the ladder.
