Player Notes
Yordano Ventura surrendered three earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the White Sox.

Advice: Ventura walked four and gave up six hits, including a solo homer to Todd Frazier. The hard-throwing right-hander carries an underwhelming 4.81 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 48 2/3 innings this season, along with a hideous 34/33 K/BB ratio. He gets the White Sox at home next.

Sun, May 22 Rotoworld
Yordano Ventura allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings but took home a win Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Advice: Ventura benefited from being the less meh of the two starters, giving up seven hits and a walk while striking out five. The win was his second in a row, improving him to 4-2, but his ERA rose to 4.85 with a 1.55 WHIP through eight starts. Despite the good record, the 24-year-old is obviously still not where he wants to be -- and where he's talented enough to be. Ventura will keep searching for that dominant form Sunday at the White Sox.

Tue, May 17 Rotoworld
Monday's game between the Red Sox and Royals has been postponed due to rain in the forecast in Kansas City.

Advice: The two clubs will make up the game as part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Monday's scheduled starters, Rick Porcello and Yordano Ventura, will presumably be pushed back to Tuesday.
