Player Notes
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.

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

Advice: Ventura will throw five innings or 75 pitches, whichever comes first. He'll need at least the one rehab start before returning to the Royals. His next step will likely be determined with how Friday's start goes.

Yordano Ventura (hand) will either begin a rehab assignment or throw a simulated game on Friday.

Advice: It doesn't really matter which one he does, as he's slated for five innings and/or 75 pitches either way. Ventura, who is dealing with ulnar neuritis in his right hand, could be ready to rejoin the Royals' rotation next week if Friday's session goes well.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Monday that Yordano Ventura (hand) will likely need at least one rehab start before returning.

Advice: Ventura hasn't pitched since June 12 because of ulnar neuritis in his right hand. He's eligible to return on Sunday, but it's not clear at this point how far the right-hander is away from a rehab assignment.
