Royals' Yordano Ventura: Loses to Cardinals in return from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ventura (6-5) surrendered seven runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a loss Tuesday to the Cardinals.

Ventura induced nine groundouts and 11 swinging strikes, but he just didn't have his control in his return from an eight-game suspension for his role in a brawl with the Orioles back in early June. He threw 40 balls in 98 pitches and managed just 13 first-pitch strikes to 27 batters. While it would be convenient to blame this on rustiness, Ventura hasn't showed any control all year, as his 5.00 ERA can be largely blamed on an atrocious 4.2 BB/9.

Royals' Yordano Ventura: Set to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ventura will return from his eight-game suspension to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Josh Vernier of 610 sports radio in Kansas City reports.

As expected, Ventura will slot back into the rotation after competing his suspension Monday night. The right-hander, who hasn't pitched in 11 days, will look to build on his last two starts, in which he's allowed just one combined earned run with 15 strikeouts over 13.1 cumulative innings.

Royals' Yordano Ventura: To begin serving suspension
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ventura will begin serving his eight-game suspension Saturday, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City reports.

Ventura was able to get one game knocked off the suspension, and he'll begin serving it Saturday with the goal of missing only one start after he took the hill Friday night. The 25-year-old will be eligible to return June 28, when the Royals take on the Cardinals.

Royals' Yordano Ventura: Holds down Tigers for sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ventura (6-4) pitched 6.1 scoreless innings, allowing six hits and striking out five in Friday's win against the Tigers.

Ventura's dominant performance marked the first start this season in which he did not allow a run. The righty lowered his ERA to 4.54, its lowest point since April 30. Outside of the infamous brawl against the Orioles, Ventura has be great this month. Excluding the blowup in Baltimore, Ventura has allowed just two earned runs over 19.1 innings (0.93 ERA) while posting an 18:2 K:BB in his three other June starts. Unfortunately, he'll be forced to cool down because of the looming suspension.

Royals' Yordano Ventura: Dominant in winning effort Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ventura (5-4) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out 10 over seven innings to earn the win Sunday at the White Sox.

The Royals jumped out to an early two-run lead, and the only run Ventura allowed was a solo homer to Jose Abreu before the bullpen closed out the victory. Despite the impressive effort, he's yet to post back-to-back quality starts in 13 outings this season. He'll make his next start Friday against the Tigers pending the outcome of the appeal of his nine-game suspension.
