Player Notes
Yordano Ventura gave up three runs (two earned) over 6 1/3 innings in Monday's win over the Rangers.

Advice: Ventura had his last turn in the rotation skipped due to back stiffness, but he was throwing some gas in his return Monday. He held the Rangers scoreless over the first five innings, but gave up one run in the sixth and two more in the seventh before being pulled. All told, he allowed five hits and four walks while striking out seven. The 23-year-old now owns a 3.38 ERA and 132/57 K/BB ratio in 152 innings this season. He'll get the Yankees on Sunday.

Yordano Ventura has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Twins due to back stiffness.

Advice: The stiffness, which is in the middle of Ventura's back, is believed to be a minor issue. Liam Hendriks will be called up from Triple-A Omaha to take the hill against Minnesota, and Ventura will presumably return to the Royals' rotation over the weekend.
