Royals | Yordano Ventura tossed

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 18:18:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura was ejected after hitting Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie Saturday, April 18. He had allowed five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings before being tossed.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) was likely retaliating for a hard slide by Lawrie the previous night. It remains to be seen if he will face any further discipline from the league, but keep an eye on the situation in case he is forced to miss a start.

Royals | Yordano Ventura had thumb cramp

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 15:20:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (thumb) was diagnosed with a right thumb cramp and is still scheduled to make his next start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: The Royals and fantasy owners dodged a bullet here, and as expected the injury is minor. Ventura ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has a tall task ahead against the Angels, though. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward starting option Sunday in FantasyScore contests.

While it looked innocent enough, and there didn't appear to be a lot of concern from the training staff or Ventura, make sure to check back for updates.
