Royals | Yordano Ventura to start Tuesday
Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura will make his major league debut and start against the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, Sept. 17, taking the place of SP Danny Duffy (elbow). Ventura went 5-4 with a 3.74 ERA with Triple-A Omaha this season.
Fantasy Tip: Ventura is one of the team's top pitching prospects with an electric arm; his fastball can reach the upper 90s on occasion. He has high strikeout upside but might be rough around the edges in his first taste of MLB action. It wouldn't be wise to rely on him this late in a mixed league.
