Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Royals | Yordano Ventura impressing with heater

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura touched 101 mph three times during his impressive outing Wednesday, March 12, striking out six and walking none in 4 1/3 innings. "He keeps getting better.. He settled in real well and dominated. Hard not to see him making the club," one scout in attendance said. General manager Dayton Moore won't commit to Ventura being in the starting rotation, however.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura has electric stuff and is quickly becoming a fantasy baseball darling, even though he has yet to lock down a rotation spot. Be careful not to overvalue him; there's a chance the Royals keep him in the bullpen to start or have him go back to the minors to work on his control and secondary offerings.
