I've had plenty of sample size - over one year to judge Luke Hochevar. My opinions on him have changed drastically in that time span. I believe he's well on his way to becoming another pitcher in a long line of Royals busts. At this increasingly critical time for the Royals - a time where they must develop young prospects - Hochevar has disappointed to all avail.
Moore has himself stated that Hoch has "underachieved" this season. That's quite an understatement.
Hochevar must turn it around - and soon.
