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.

Thu, 07 May 2015 18:30:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura will make his first start since serving a seven-game suspension Friday, May 8, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) had a 4.94 ERA through his first five starts and will take on a very dangerous Tigers' lineup. FantasyScore owners should leave Ventura alone for this first appearance.

Royals | Yordano Ventura suspended seven games

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:21:18 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura has been suspended seven games for his involvement in an altercation with the Chicago White Sox earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has been involved with several altercations this season but this will be his first suspension. Owners will need to monitor the situation since he could continue to pitch if he decides to appeal the suspension.

Royals | Yordano Ventura ejected in fracas

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 23:07:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura was ejected Thursday, April 24, for his role in a bench-clearing brawl with the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura had a pretty big role in the altercation, and it's hard to imagine him not getting suspended. With this situation on the heels of his altercation with Brett Lawrie, he could miss multiple games. Chris R. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) could be stretched out from the bullpen in order to cover a start, and he might have some low-end upside on FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

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 exits

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 05:14:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (calf) left the game Sunday, April 12, due to a right calf cramp.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of your cap) should be fine for his next start, which should be against the Oakland Athletics this weekend. He's at a low price for his talent level and has a good matchup on FantasyScore.

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.

Royals | Yordano Ventura leaves early

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 14:59:07 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura (undisclosed) left his start against the Chicago White Sox three pitches into the seventh inning Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: The training staff massaged Ventura's ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) wrist, but the nature and severity of the injury are unknown at this point. 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.
