Player Notes
Yordano Ventura was hit hard in Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays, allowing five runs on six hits over his seven frames.

Advice: Ventura walked a pair and struck out two on the afternoon. Thankfully for him, the Royals offense came to play and did enough to secure his victory. Part of Ventura's problem was his inability to keep the ball in the yard, as Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista launched back-to-back homers in the fifth inning. Now 6-7 on the season, he'll carry a 4.98 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into Friday's matchup against the White Sox.

Sat, Aug 1 Rotoworld
Yordano Ventura pitched well in his return to the rotation on Sunday, holding the Astros to one run on six hits over seven innings in the 5-1 win.

Advice: Ventura had been sent to Triple-A earlier this month with the hopes that he could smooth out his game against minor league competition, as his 5.19 ERA simply wasn't cutting it. He was called up on June 22 to take the place of Jason Vargas, who just hit the disabled list with an elbow injury. Against the Astros on Sunday, the 24-year-old righty struck out five without walking a batter, with the only run to score against him coming on a Colby Rasmus single in the second inning. This might end up being little more than a spot start, though, as the team is reportedly on the verge of trading for Reds ace Johnny Cueto. We should get clarification on Ventura's place in the Royal rotation--if he has one--in the coming days.
