News: Ventura tossed 6.1 innings against the Indians on Friday night, surrendering four runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk while collecting seven strikeouts. Impact: Though this was not a terrible effort from Ventura, the rookie hurler continues to put up less-than-impressive results as of late. Since July 9, the 23-year-old righty has posted a 6.75 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 15:9 K:BB ratio across 17.1 innings. Ventura is expected to be back atop the mound Thursday evening versus the Twins.(RotoWire, )

News: Ventura got shelled Sunday, lasting just 4.1 innings against the Red Sox and giving up six earned runs on nine hits and four walks. He fell to 7-8 on the season and did not strike out a single batter. Impact: The last time Ventura failed to record a strikeout in a game in which he started was in 2009 for the Royals' Dominican Summer League team. His strikeout totals have certainly dipped since the first month of the season, but this was a new low. In April, Ventura posted a 25.4 percent strikeout rate, but he is striking out well below 20 percent of his batters in June and July. There was a case to be made that Ventura was a top-30 starting pitcher after the first month of the season, but he no longer demands to be rostered in standard leagues.(RotoWire, )
