Player Notes
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.

Yordano Ventura was ejected from Thursday's start against the White Sox.

Advice: Lorenzo Cain and Edinson Volquez were also tossed from the Royals with Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija given the gate from the White Sox. It's the second straight start that Ventura has been given the heave-ho. There has been bad blood between the two sides for awhile, but Ventura appeared to instigate the entire incident by shouting obscenities at Adam Eaton after fielding his comebacker in the seventh inning. That led to a benches-clearing altercation between the two clubs with punches thrown. There's a high-likelihood that he'll face some sort of suspension for this one.

Yordano Ventura (leg) allowed five runs in 3 1/3 innings before he was ejected for plunking Brett Lawrie.

Advice: Ventura was dealing with cramps at the beginning of the season, having to exit his first start with a right thumb cramp and his second start with a right calf cramp. On Saturday, he was ejected before his muscles could do him in. Ventura plunked Lawrie immediately after Josh Reddick smashed a three-run homer off the pitcher.He struck out two and walked two in his limited time on the mound. Once he stops cramping up and stops throwing tantrums, Ventura should be a valuable fantasy starter. Last season, he held a 3.20 ERA and a 1.295 WHIP in 183 innings. If he's not suspended, Ventura will face the White Sox in his next outing. Otherwise, we might be looking at Chris Young.

Yordano Ventura was ejected from Saturday's game against the A's after hitting Brett Lawrie with a pitch.

Advice: This was retaliation for Lawrie sliding hard into Alcides Escobar on Friday night. Ventura's intent was clear and now he's probably headed for a suspension. The 23-year-old right-hander got hit pretty hard in this one, surrendering five runs in only 3 1/3 innings of work. Chris Young would likely get the call if Ventura is suspended for his next turn.
