News: Ventura struck out six and walked three while giving up one run on four hits over six innings Friday night to record his 10th win of the season. Impact: While the production this season hasn't necessary met the sky-high expectations for the rookie right-hander, Ventura has put together a strong campaign despite a scare with his elbow earlier this season. Through 25 appearances (24 starts), he's now toting a 3.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 125 strikeouts in 145.2 innings. He's also reeled off a stretch of six straight quality starts, while carrying a 37:18 K:BB in 38 innings during that span. Ventura will face the Twins in a home start his next time out.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura gave up three runs over 6.2 innings with six walks and four strikeouts in Saturday's loss to Minnesota. Impact: The six walks were a career high for Ventura, and he has 10 walks in his last two starts. However, we wouldn't be too concerned since he had been on a roll with a 2.84 ERA and 27:9 K:BB in 25.1 innings in his four previous starts.(RotoWire, )

Ventura will take the hill Saturday in Minnesota.(RotoWire, )
