PHOENIX (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals have optioned right-hander Luke Hochevar to Triple-A Omaha, increasing the chances Sidney Ponson will fill a slot in the starting rotation.

Hochevar, the first player picked in the 2006 draft, had a 3.86 ERA in five spring training games, allowing 17 hits and four walks in 16 1-3 innings. He was 6-12 with a 5.51 ERA in 22 starts for Kansas City last season after starting the year with Omaha.

Kansas City announced the move on Tuesday.

The Royals signed Ponson to a minor league contract on March 17 after he pitched well for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic.
