KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 16 (UPI) -- Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Luke Hochevar has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, the team said Wednesday.

The move is retroactive to June 12, when the 26-year-old right-hander went down with a right-elbow strain.

Hochevar has compiled 5-4 record with a 4.96 ERA over 13 starts this season for the Royals.

In corresponding moves, Kansas City recalled pitcher Anthony Lerew from Triple-A Omaha and released pitcher John Parrish, 32, who went 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in nine appearances with the Royals.
