Royals SP Yordano Ventura weathers storm to gain victory

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/15) Two rotten innings did not doom Royals starter Yordano Ventura in Toronto on Saturday. His supporting cast made sure of that.

Ventura was sailing along with a perfect game through 3 2/3 innings when four straight singles turned his 1-0 lead into a 2-1 deficit. He then sandwiched two outs around a walk in the fourth before successive homers by Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista made it 5-1.

That's when Mr. Hyde turned into Dr. Jekyll again. Ventura retired the last seven batters he faced while his team staged its comeback and he wound up with his second consecutive win. He finished having allowed five runs on six hits in seven innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

He is still saddled, however, with a rather ugly 4.98 ERA.

Yordano Ventura wins second in last three for Royals

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/26/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura went seven innings, his longest start since May 31. He won for the second time in three games to improve to 5-7. 

Ventura allowed one run on five hits. It's the third time in the last four starts he's allowed five hits or fewer. He struck out five. 

Royals' Yordano Ventura recalled less than 24 hours after demotion

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/22/15) The Royals have recalled right-hander Yordano Ventura from Triple-A Omaha. Ventura was optioned on Tuesday, but was immediately recalled after Jason Vargas was placed on the disabled list with a torn UCL. 

The Royals have not announced when Ventura will make his next start.

Royals demote Yordano Ventura to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/21/15) Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura has been optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. Ventura, the team's 2015 Opening Day starter has had a dreadful year so far, gave up six earned runs in his latest start on Monday, giving him an ugly 5.19 ERA on the season.

Ventura has struggled all season, and spent time on the disabled list earlier in the month. The right-hander hasn't pitched more than five innings in any of his last four starts for the Royals.

His demotion clears a roster spot for Jason Vargas, who will start on Tuesday after being activated from the DL. 

Royals P Yordano Ventura's spot in rotation in danger

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/21/15) Yordano Ventura had another shaky outing on Monday, and his spot in the Royals' rotation could be in question, per WHB Radio. 

Ventura has gone less than five innings in four of his 14 starts, while allowing at least four runs in seven of those. With a 5.19 ERA, he could be the odd-man out as Kansas City trims a six-man rotation. 

"He had some inconsistencies in the first half, but the second half really took off. We were hoping that he would build off that, but it's been a bit of a struggle for him to this point," manager Ned Yost said.
