Seven no-hit innings for Royals' Yordano Ventura

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/28/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura threw seven no-hit innings in Friday's start. 

Ventura walked two and struck out four, while throwing 49 of his 88 pitches for strikes. He lowered his spring ERA to 5.14.

The Royals took Ventura from the game after the seventh, as reliever Jason Frasor made it one out further before giving up a hit. 

The bullpen completed the one-hitter. 

Royals name Yordano Ventura Opening Day starter

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) The Royals have named pitcher Yordano Ventura the starter for Opening Day, the Kansas City Star reports.

Ventura gets the call after going 14-10 with a 3.20 ERA and 159:69 K:BB ratio in 183 innings last season in his first full year with the team. He capped the year with an uneven postseason but finished strong, allowing just two earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over two World Series starts. Manager Ned Yost said Wednesday that Ventura's performance in Game 6 of the World Series solidified his confidence in handing the young pitcher the Opening Day assignment.

Yost also said that Ventura will be followed by Danny Duffy, Edinson Volquez, Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation.

Royals' Yordano Ventura sharper in second spring outing

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) After giving up four runs in one inning in his spring debut, Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura tossed three scoreless innings Wednesday, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out three.

"[Ventura] made a really great adjustment from his last outing," manager Ned Yost said after the outing, per MLB.com. "He stopped going over his front side as much [during his delivery]. And he was really down in the zone in his last two innings. He did a good job."

Ventura is the likely choice to start on opening day for the Royals.

Royals' Yordano Ventura knocked around on Friday

by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(3/6/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was knocked around in his spring debut against the Indians.

Ventura allowed four runs on four hits in just one inning of work. He issued two walks, and struck out one during the appearance. After a breakout season in 2014, Ventura is pretty much guaranteed a rotation spot, so there's no real reason to panic about the performance.

The 23-year-old posted a 3.20 ERA over 183 innings last season. 

Report: Braves wanted Yordano Ventura in return for Evan Gattis

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/14) According to MLB.com reporter Mark Bowman, when the Royals expressed interest in trading for catcher Evan Gattis, the Braves asked for pitcher Yordano Ventura in return. The Royals aren't expected to trade their young right-hander in the offseason, per the report.

The Braves have been shopping Gattis around to multiple teams, including the Astros, Athletics and Marlins. If he stays put in Atlanta, the Braves are expected to move him to left field to start the season.
