Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura strikes out seven in losing effort

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura allowed four runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Kansas City's 6-1 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Ventura had issues in the first inning when he issued two consecutive walks to open the game. Then, Jhonny Peralta singled to bring home a run before Matt Adams doubled to center to plate another.

"He was just missing. There were some pitches I thought could go either way that resulted in walks," manager Ned Yost said to MLB.com. "The one bad pitch he made all day was he pulled a changeup to [Matt] Carpenter up and in, and he hit it down the line [for a homer].

"After that first inning, I thought he threw the ball awesome."

Ventura had more problems in the sixth when he allowed a two-run homer to Matt Carpenter. Ventura, now 3-4, moved his ERA to 4.64 in 54 1/3 innings of work.

He will look to get back on track on Saturday against the Cubs.

Danny Duffy injury forces Royals to shuffle rotation

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/22/15) The Royals will skip pitcher Danny Duffy in the starting rotation, per the Kansas City Star. Duffy is suffering from shoulder stiffness. 

"Yesterday as I got through warming up, it just grabbed a little bit. Felt like I needed a little WD-40 in there," Duffy said, per MLB.com.

Duffy was scheduled to pitch on Saturday. Edinson Volquez, originally scheduled to start on Sunday, will move up a day to replace Duffy on Saturday.

Yordano Ventura, scheduled for Monday, will also move up a day and pitch on Sunday.

Duffy will get bumped back to a Tuesday start.  

Royals starter Yordano Ventura tosses seven shutout IP for win

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/15) Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura (3-3) tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday to defeat the Reds.

Ventura allowed four hits and fan six in the strong outing.

"He went seven innings and got a lot of ground balls," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It shows what a plus fastball, plus changeup can do. When he changes speeds like that you have to gear up for the velocity and then adjust when he changes speeds. He did a good job."

The performance ended a mini slump for Ventura, who had allowed 14 runs in 18 1/3 innings over his last three starts.

"This is the best I've felt this season," Ventura said with teammate Christian Colon acting as his interpreter. "All my pitches were sharp. I was just focused on having my pitches down in the zone and having quality pitches."

Ventura's next start is set for Monday in New York against the Yankees.

Royals' Yordano Ventura allows five runs in loss vs. Rangers

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/15) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura took the loss on Wednesday, allowing five earned runs on 10 hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Rangers.

Ventura (2-3) allowed a solo home run in the first inning and couldn't get out of the frame before a second run scored. He then surrendered a two-run home run in the second inning and let one more run come home in the fourth, giving him his third start in his last five games with five runs allowed.

"I thought he did a nice job of containing the damage and keeping us in there," manager Ned Yost said after the game, per MLB.com. "I thought he came out and had all kinds of intensity. I was real pleased with it. He came out and competed."

Ventura owns a 5.36 ERA and 30:15 K:BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Reds at home Tuesday.
