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 SP Jason Vargas unable to factor into decision Game 4
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/26/14) Royals pitcher Jason Vargas was unable to factor into the decision in Game 4 of the World Series against the Giants at AT&T Park on Saturday.
Vargas surrendered a run on a fielder's choice in the opening frame, followed by a run-scoring single to Buster Posey in the third and a run-scoring single to Hunter Pence in the fifth. The southpaw permitted three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over four innings of an 11-4 defeat. He has allowed six earned runs over 15 1/3 postseason innings.
|2014 summary: For several years now, Jason Vargas has been a sneaky streaming play, as he has pitched for teams in pitcher-friendly parks that have masked his tendency to allow home runs at a high rate. Signing with the Royals looked to be a savvy move for Vargas, but it didn't work out as well as Fantasy owners might have hoped. The lefty actually allowed 12 of his 19 home runs at Kauffman Stadium and posted a 4.53 ERA there, but his season was saved by a 2.73 road ERA.
Playing time status: Though he missed time in 2014 due to an appendectomy and had surgery to remove a blood clot the year before, Vargas has been fairly reliable as an innings eater. It's fair to expect him to give the Royals roughly 200 innings in 2015.
2015 outlook: Perhaps Vargas came back too quickly from his appendectomy, as he did not have the same knack for inducing popups upon his return. and hitters whacked him around for a .280 batting average. With an offseason of rest, Vargas could return to form, and he just might have better luck containing the long ball in home starts. He's worth a gamble late during drafts in deeper mixed leagues and could once again be a worthwhile streaming option in standard mixed leagues.
