Royals ace Ventura ejected for beaning Athletics' Lawrie

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/15) Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was ejected by umpire Jim Joyce in the fourth inning Saturday night for hitting Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie with a pitch.

The benches emptied, but no punches were thrown and the players soon dispersed, according to Comcast SportsNet.

"He really just lost command most of the night," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "He was all over the place."

Lawrie has been in the center of a controversy after a hard slide into second base Friday caused injury to Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar.

Ventura collapsed in the fourth after three no-hit innings. He had already given up five runs when he beaned Lawrie.

Royals' Ventura making adjustments to deal with cramping issues

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/15) Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura has left his first two starts this season due to cramping issues (thumb, calf). Manager Ned Yost said the right-hander is taking the necessary steps to make sure that doesn't happen again, according to MLB Network Radio.

"He's making adjustments in his diet and hydrating two days before his start," Yost said.

Ventura is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Athletics. He is 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA.

Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura leaves with calf cramp Sunday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura left his start Sunday against the Angels while dealing with calf cramp, reports Fox Sports Kansas City.

Ventura, who allowed two runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings, pulled up lame and couldn't cover first on an grounder. He spoke with a team trainer before being pulled from the game. He earned his second win of the season despite leaving with a trainer for the second consecutive start. He now has a 2.31 ERA.

He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Athletics.

Royals' Yost on Yordano Ventura: 'He's fine now'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/15) Royals manager Ned Yost said Wednesday that pitcher Yordano Ventura, who was removed from his Opening Day start due to a thumb cramp, is fine, MLB.com reports.

"He could throw today," Yost said before Wednesday's game.

Ventura crumpled to the ground in pain after throwing a pitch in the seventh inning Monday. Yost said he was unsure of what caused the cramps.

"I don't know. Maybe dehydration?" Yost said. "I know I get them sometimes when I'm driving my tractor on the farm for a long time -- my thumb will do the same thing. It probably has to do with not taking a lot of fluids."

Ventura is expected to make his next scheduled start Sunday against the Angels.

"I think he just has to stay hydrated, I think with him, it was Opening Day and you lose focus and you don't stay hydrated. That's the main thing. Opening Day, you get out of your routine, and he got out of his routine.

"But he's fine now."

Yordano Ventura earns injury-shortened win for Royals

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/6/15) Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura earned a win in a 10-1 win over the White Sox on Opening Day. 

Ventura allowed one run on four hits in six-plus innings. 

Ventura walked one and struck out two. The only damage against him was a solo homer by Jose Abreu to lead off the seventh inning. Ventura was forced to leave the game after Abreu's home run after suffering a thumb cramp. 

''I felt the thumb lock up on me,'' Ventura said. ''My first thought, it was something really bad, but I'm really happy that it's not. I'm not concerned about it at all. It's just a cramp, though, but it surprised me.''

Ventura threw 81 pitches, 56 for strikes.
