News: Ventura allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits, walking one and striking out six over seven innings of a 4-2 loss to Boston on Friday night. Impact: Ventura (12-10, 3.27 ERA) pitched reasonably well, but he was the victim of some sloppy fielding, and his own command issues (he hit two batters and tossed a wild pitch that brought a runner home). His mastery of the strike zone still comes and goes, but he has electric stuff and will continue to improve. An interesting note: Yoenis Cespedes stole a base in the third inning and it was the first stolen base attempt against Ventura this season - spanning 176 innings. He'll get the White Sox at home next time out.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura scattered three hits over six scoreless innings in Sunday's win over the Yankees. Impact: Ventura's command wasn't at its best, as he had four walks and two strikeouts, but he was still able to shut down New York. The right-hander combined with relievers Aaron Crow, Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis to post the shutout at Yankee Stadium. Ventura will take a 3.25 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 134:61 K:BB ratio into Friday's home start against the Red Sox.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with four walks and seven strikeouts in a victory over Texas on Monday.

The right-hander threw his seventh consecutive quality start while improving to 11-9 on the season. Ventura will face the Yankees on the road Sunday.(RotoWire, )
