MLB reduces Yordano Ventura's suspension for throwing at Manny Machado
The Royals' right-hander initially received a nine-game suspension but will miss one fewer game
MLB on Saturday announced that Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura's suspension has been reduced to eight games from the original nine games he received for throwing at Manny Machado.
By way of reminder, here's what happened between the Orioles and Royals on June 7 ...
For his role in the festivities, Machado received a four-game suspension.
As for Ventura, he'll begin serving his suspension immediately, and he'll be eligible for reinstatement on June 28, barring any rainouts. If kept on regular rest, Ventura would've been slated to start against the Mets in Queens on Wednesday, June 22. After that, he'd be in line to start against the Cardinals at home on June 27. Instead, Ventura will miss those two turns.
On the season, the hard-throwing 25-year-old has pitched to a 4.54 ERA and 1.64 K/BB ratio in 14 starts.
