Royals starter Yordano Ventura drops appeal of suspension
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals are reporting that right-hander Yordano Ventura has dropped the appeal to his seven-game suspension and will start serving it immediately.

Ventura was slapped with the penalty for instigating a brawl against the White Sox by hitting Adam Eaton with a pitch and yelling at him afterward.

His decision will keep him sidelined until at least May 8, when he would be eligible to pitch in Detroit. Edinson Volquez, however, is scheduled to start that game.

Ventura did not perform well in his only start since the incident. He blew a lead Wednesday to Cleveland in giving up five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings and issuing a season-high four walks.

Royals' Yordano Ventura takes loss vs. Indians
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was stuck with the loss Wednesday, allowing five earned runs on six hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 7-5 defeat against the Indians.

Ventura (2-2) surrendered five runs for the second time in his last three games Wednesday while walking more than two batters for the first time this season. He surrendered a three-run home run in the third inning and was charged with two of the Indians' three runs in the sixth inning, which gave Cleveland the lead for good.

Ventura owns a 4.94 ERA and 20:10 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Indians again Monday.

Royals back Yordano Ventura after Thursday's incident
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Despite being involved in his third on-field incident in less than a month, teammates of Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura were quick to defend Ventura, reports MLB.com.

"He's a young kid," center fielder Lorenzo Cain said. "He was a little aggressive [Thursday], but at the same time, we're gonna back our teammates regardless. That's what we do. We're a family in here."

Ventura instigated a benches-clearing incident when he yelled profanity at Adam Eaton after Eaton hit a pitch back to Ventura during Thursday's contest.

After the game, manager Ned Yost said Ventura, 23, needs to do a better job of keeping his emotions in check.

"Yeah, that was our conversation after the game," Yost said. "You know, he's a young guy. I had trouble learning to control my emotions when I was young. It's something you have to continue to work on. He knows it. It just comes out. He's a competitive guy. He's going to work on controlling his emotions from here out."

Ventura was ejected from the game and he admitted afterward that he's had trouble dealing with his emotions during games.

"The last three outings my emotions have spilled over and gotten the better of me," he said. "I'm an emotional pitcher but I need to work on controlling my emotions. I want to do that. Moving forward I certainly want to avoid the way [things] have ended. I'll use the emotions to pitch and not go over the top."

Five ejected from White Sox-Royals Thursday after brawl
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

A comebacker by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton to Royals starter Yordano Ventura for the final out in the seventh inning ignited a benches-clearing brawl in Thursday's game between the two teams, resulting in five players getting ejected.

Ventura could be seen mouthing an expletive to Eaton, taking apparent umbridge with the comebacker or something that Eaton may have said on his way to first base. After the ruckus was finally settled, the umpires ejected Ventura along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Edinson Volquez. White Sox starter Chris Sale and teammate Jeff Samardzija were also hit with ejections, ending the night of both starting pitchers in one fell swoop.

Ventura, who was ejected for the second time this season and is likely facing a lengthy suspension, finished the night with two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings along with eight strikeouts.

Sale threw 70 of his 99 pitches for strikes but managed to rack up just two strikeouts before being ejected. He also allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in seven innings of work.

Play resumed in the top of the eighth inning with the two teams tied 2-2.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera suspended five games, Ventura fined
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera has been suspended five games after throwing behind Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie Sunday, while starting pitcher Yordano Ventura has been fined an undisclosed amount for hitting Lawrie with a pitch Saturday.

Lawrie has been surrounded by controversy after a hard slide into second base Friday injured the knee of Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar. Both pitchers were ejected in their respective games.

Herrera, who is appealing his suspension according to the Kansas City Star, has tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in six appearances. Ventura's avoidance of his suspension keeps him in line to face Chris Sale Thursday.
