News: Ventura (shoulder) will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Giants on Wednesday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: A bout of shoulder tightness forced Ventura off the hill after 5.2 innings in Game 2 of the ALCS, but he threw a bullpen session earlier in the week and would have started Game 6, had the series gone that far. As it turned out, the Royals swept the Orioles, thus affording him a couple extra days to rest the shoulder.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura has left Saturday's playoff game against the Orioles because of tightness in his pitching shoulder. Impact: Ventura was facing Caleb Joseph in the sixth inning when he winced and walked off the mound after throwing a pitch. After a quick visit from the Kansas City trainer, Ventura left the game and was replaced by Brandon Finnegan. Back in May, Ventura was led off the field by a trainer because of a sore elbow in the third inning of a start against Houston. An MRI exam at the time did not show any major damage, but Ventura missed his next scheduled start.(STATS, 8:04pm)
