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, )

News: Ventura allowed two runs on two hits with four walks and five strikeouts over six innings Monday in a win over the A's. Impact: Ventura tossed his fourth straight quality start during a no decision on the way to Kansas City taking over first place in the AL Central. The hard-throwing righty walked four batters but was around the plate all night, barely missing on a few offerings. He owns a 3.45 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 115:44 K:BB over 133 innings. Ventura will take the hill Saturday in Minnesota.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura won his ninth game of the year Wednesday over the Diamondbacks, tossing six innings of two-run ball with a walk and eight strikeouts. Impact: Ventura labored a little bit Wednesday, needing 105 pitches to get though six innings. The flamethrower had hiccups in July (4.13 ERA) and May (5.60), sandwiched by an awesome April (1.50) and June (2.90). It's anyone's guess which Yordano will show up Monday against the A's.(RotoWire, )
