Player Notes
Yordano Ventura has dropped the appeal of his seven-game suspension and will begin serving it on Thursday.

Advice: Ventura received the suspension after instigating a benches-clearing brawl with the White Sox last Thursday. He'll essentially miss one turn in the starting rotation and will return next Friday for the start of a three-game series against the Tigers.

Yordano Ventura gave up five runs and walked four in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Tribe.

Advice: On the plus side, it's the first time in five starts he hasn't exited due to an injury or an ejection. Just 54 of Ventura's 98 pitches tonight were strikes, and he fanned just one. He entered with a 19/6 K/BB ratio in 22 innings, so he wasn't having these kinds of problems previously. He'll face the Indians again next time out, but that start will be at home.

Thu, Apr 30 Rotoworld
Yordano Ventura was suspended seven games for his role in Thursday's altercation with the White Sox.

Advice: This doesn't come as a surprise as Ventura appeared to instigate the brawl by shouting obscenities at Adam Eaton. He will miss one start and have another delayed a few days now.
