Marlins | Marcell Ozuna won't come cheap

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 11:09:23 -0800

The Miami Marlins are asking for a lot in return for OF Marcell Ozuna, and they've already asked for Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura, Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker and Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna would likely benefit from a change of scenery after he was demoted to the minors for struggling at the major league level early last season. Remember, he's just a year removed from a .269/.317/.455 season with 23 home runs in 153 games, so there is surely sleeper potential, especially if he lands in a better situation.

Fantasy Tip: With the loss, Ventura fell to 0-2 with a 6.43 ERA through five starts this postseason. He remains in line to start Game 7 of the World Series Wednesday, Nov. 4 (if necessary).

Royals | KC sets World Series rotation

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 11:19:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals SPs Edinson Volquez and Johnny Cueto will start Games 1 and 2 of the World Series against the New York Mets, followed by SPs Yordano Ventura and Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: The Royals have a tall task matching up with the Mets' young stud starters in the Series. Ventura is the most promising Royals starter with the most upside for 2016 fantasy owners to invest in. Cueto had a rough go of it upon being traded to KC midseason, but we would expect him to continue his fantasy ace-like ways next year.

Royals | Yordano Ventura to start Game 6

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 17:55:00 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura will start Game 6 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA through three postseason starts this year, with opposing hitters batting .308 against him. However, he hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his outings and he is averaging more than a strikeout per inning, so he may still be worth a gamble in FantasyScore.

Royals | KC announces ALCS rotation

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 11:38:21 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez will start Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays, and he'll be followed by SP Yordano Ventura in Game 2 and SP Johnny Cueto in Game 3, manager Ned Yost announced Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for the Royals is that the Blue Jays hit much better against left-handed pitchers this year. However, they remain the highest-scoring offensive club in baseball this year, so all of the Royals pitchers come with some element of risk, especially when pitching in hitter-friendly Rogers Centre.

Royals | Yordano Ventura leads ALDS rotation

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:09:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura will start Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Thursday, Oct. 8. SP Johnny Cueto will go in Game 2, and SP Edinson Volquez will start Game 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($7,700, 15,4% of cap) went 4-1 with a 3.14 ERA in September and finished strong late, including 11 strikeouts against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, Oct. 3. He should be a solid top starter for the Royals. Cueto ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) struggled when he was with the Cincinnati Reds in the postseason and he hasn't lit the world on fire in Kansas City.

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 19:18:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has been solid the last two months, and he should be a valuable option at FantasyScore in the postseason.

Royals | Yordano Ventura blows away Detroit

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 21:46:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura allowed one earned run, five hits and a walk while matching a career high with 11 strikeouts Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Detroit Tigers in a win.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) was banished to the minors earlier in the summer, but that demotion appears to have lit a fire under him. He has turned in five straight quality starts and is unbeaten in eight straight outings with six straight successful decisions. Ventura also has at least six strikeouts in five straight appearances.
