Player Notes
Yordano Ventura only lasted four innings in Saturday's loss to the Mariners, giving up five runs on three hits and a whopping six walks.

Advice: Ventura seemingly walked the world on Saturday. He set the tone for the night when he issued back-to-back walks with two outs to Nelson Cruz and Adam Lind in the first inning, a self-inflicted mess that was immediately followed up with a three-run bomb from Kyle Seager. That was all the Mariners needed. This actually was the second six-walk outing of the year for Ventura, who now owns a 22/20 K/BB ratio. Still, his ERA only sits at 3.67 and this was the first time he allowed more than two runs in a start. It's far too early to be jumping ship, even if his walk rate is becoming untenable.

Sat, Apr 30 Rotoworld
Yordano Ventura limited the Orioles to one run over seven innings Sunday in the Royals' 6-1 win.

Advice: Ventura cruised right through the Orioles' red-hot batting order, yielding just three hits and two walks while whiffing four. He needed only 96 pitches to make it all the way through the seventh -- a good sign for his off-and-on issues with command. The right-hander stands 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 23 innings this season. He'll try to keep it all working next time out in Seattle.
