Player Notes
Yordano Ventura (hand) has officially been cleared to start on Thursday against the Rays after a successful bullpen session Monday.

Advice: Ventura had been slated for another rehab start, but the Royals changed their mind after he felt good in a 'pen session over the weekend. Given the nice matchup, fantasy owners can probably go ahead and roll with the righty this week. Joe Blanton will head back to the bullpen following Ventura's return.

Yordano Ventura (hand) is expected to skip his final rehab start and rejoin the Royals' rotation, likely on Thursday versus the Rays.

Advice: Ventura had been pegged to take the ball on Monday for Triple-A Omaha in a final tune-up, but it appears the club has decided he doesn't need that outing. "He's ready," manager Ned Yost said. Ventura has been on the shelf since mid-June with ulnar neuritis in his pitching hand.

Yordano Ventura (hand) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Omaha on Monday.

Advice: The righty didn't have any issues with his right hand during a bullpen session Saturday, but he still felt a very slight numbness in his last rehab outing so the Royals are going to play it safe. Ventura will be re-evaluated after Monday's start, as he would potentially be in line to rejoin the rotation next weekend.

Yordano Ventura (hand) will likely make another minor league rehab start.

Advice: Ventura, out since June 13 with ulnar neuritis, allowed just one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday at Triple-A Omaha. He still felt a very slight numbness in his hand, so the Royals want to play things safe before activating him.

Yordano Ventura (hand) allowed just one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday at Triple-A Omaha.

Advice: Ventura walked three but struck out four and gave up only three hits. It may be enough to convince the Royals that the 24-year-old right-hander is ready to return from the disabled list. He's been on the shelf since June 13 with ulnar neuritis.

Thu, Jul 2 Rotoworld
Yordano Ventura (hand) will make at least one more rehab start with Triple-A Omaha.

Advice: Ventura had been slated for just one rehab outing, but the Royals changed their minds after the righty gave up three runs on three hits and three walks over just four innings Friday. "The stuff was OK," manager Ned Yost said. "Ninety-seven miles per hour. Decent curveball. (We need to) just get him back into a good rhythm, just get him back into a good spot. So when he comes up here, he’s ready to go." The decision to hold back Ventura means Joe Blanton will get at least one more start.
