Royals | Yordano Ventura to be No. 3 starter

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said SP Yordano Ventura will be the team's No. 3 starter behind SPs James Shields and Jason Vargas to open the season. Ventura struck out six in six innings Monday, March 17. SP Danny Duffy will now be given a chance to win a spot in the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura, despite his size, has an electric arm that can touch triple digits. His strikeout upside is extremely high, but he'll have to be consistent with his secondary offerings to survive in the bigs. Now that he's got a firm rotation spot, his inflated draft value seems more justified.
