Despite the fact that the Royals could use a lefty starter, I'm not sure how i feel about this. If Ramirez makes the rotation that means one of Bannister, Davies, and Hochevar is in Omaha, which I don't particularly like because they need to find out for sure on all three guys in the majors. My guess is they send down Hochevar to work on his control until somebody gets hurt or proves ineffective. Basically this is a left-handed Brett Tomko, and not a good sign for what the organization thinks of Hochevar.

luke needs more work...why is that not a good sign? this is a 1 year deal...it allows some guys to develop...and gives us some depth because you know somebody is gonna get hurt.
