Royals | Yordano Ventura rehab update

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:04:39 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (arm) is expected to make a rehab start for Class AAA Omaha Friday, June 26. He will throw approximately five innings or 75 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well, Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) could be activated from the disabled list to start against the Houston Astros next week. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start back in order to insure he's completely healthy and able to pitch effectively.

Royals | Yordano Ventura likely needs rehab

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 19:06:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (arm) is likely to need at least one minor-league rehab start at some point, manager Ned Yost said Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how close Ventura is to heading out for that stint, but FantasyScore players will want to avoid Ventura until he can officially make his way back to the big club and pitch in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Royals | Yordano Ventura headed to DL

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:26:11 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (arm) will be placed on the disabled list due to an ulnar nerve condition.

Fantasy Tip: This is a somewhat shocking development, but it could help explain Ventura's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) struggles. To date, has a 4.68 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 7.2 K/9 with just three wins. He has also left consecutive starts after pitching just three innings in each. FantasyScore players will want to see Ventura prove himself on the hill before trusting him in lineups. Seasonal owners in the majority of leagues can move on if there isn't room to stash him in a DL slot.

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:04:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (hand) completed his bullpen session without trouble and will start against the Boston Red Sox Friday, June 19.

He has also left his last two starts after pitching only three innings in each. FantasyScore players should view him as an extremely risky start until he proves otherwise.

Royals | Yordano Ventura leaves early

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 06:05:35 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (hand) was removed after the third inning of Kansas City's 4-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, June 12. It was a precautionary move, because Ventura was experiencing weakness in his pitching hand. "Of course, you have a level of concern because you don't really know what it is yet," manager Ned Yost said. "But we'll wait till tomorrow and see what's going on."

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has just three wins with a 4.68 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP and a 7.2 K/9 mark this season, and he hasn't made it to the fourth inning in either of his last two starts. Outside of AL-only leagues, the young flame throwing should be avoided in all fantasy formats until he shows he is healthy but pitching well and deep into a ball game.

Royals | Danny Duffy to be skipped

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:01:17 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy's (shoulder) spot in the rotation will be skipped because of shoulder stiffness. He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday, May 26. SP Edinson Volquez is now scheduled to start Saturday, May 23, while SP Yordano Ventura will start Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for any updates on Duffy's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) status over the next few days. Volquez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Ventura ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) are both scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals this weekend and could be risky option on FantasyScore against a solid offense.
