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' Lorenzo Cain: Exits Tuesday with strained hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cain left Tuesday's game with a strained hamstring, FOX Sports Kansas City's Joel Goldberg reports.

He went 1-for-4 before leaving and being replaced by Jarrod Dyson in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. Manager Ned Yost said he was unsure of the severity of the hamstring issue, and said Cain will be re-evaluated Wednesday. Cain most recently dealt with a hamstring issue back in 2015, and he missed several games dealing with the injury. Dyson would be the likely replacement in center field if Cain misses further time.

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' Danny Duffy: Goes eight strong innings in win over Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-1) allowed two runs on six hits with eight strikeouts over eight innings in a win Monday over the Cardinals.

Duffy lasted more than 6.1 innings for the first time since he rejoined the rotation May 21. But Duffy has been pitching at a high level for some time, as he now has four starts with at least eight strikeouts in his past five starts, three of which have been quality starts. After Duffy's performance Monday, he now owns a 3.55 ERA with an excellent 53:9 K:BB in just 45.2 innings as a starter.

Royals' Kendrys Morales: Slaps four hits against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morales went 4-for-4 and drove in two runs in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

Morales is 8-for-12 with two homers, three runs scored and five RBI over the past three games as Morales is finally starting to wake up this season. After opening June with a brutal .193/.262/.330 batting line, he is now hitting a more respectable .243/.309/.406 after Monday's performance, largely thanks to four multi-hit games in his past six starts.
