Yordano Ventura: Flame Thrower
Yordano Ventura: Flame Thrower. This young stud is sure to light up your radar gun. Get ready, Royals fans. This young righty throws triple digits, and will be in our starting rotation for the 2014 regular season. The decision to put Ventura in the rotation was made by Ned Yost after Ventura's stellar outing against the Rangers on Monday night. Ventura's line for the game was: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 6 SO, and 0 BB. After veteran righty, Luke Hochevar went down with Tommy John, that put Ventura in a head-to-head battle with young lefty, Danny Duffy. What the Royals will do with Duffy is unclear at this point. They may move him to the bullpen, or they may send him to Triple-A Omaha. KC's rotation is as follows: James Shields, Jason Vargas, Yordano Ventura, Jeremy Guthrie, and Bruce Chen. It should be an interesting year for the young rookie. Lets throw fire, Yordano.
