FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: NO DAMAGE FOUND IN YORDANO VENTURA'S ELBOW, TO MISS ONLY ONE START

                                                           

An MRI done on the pitching elbow of Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura failed to reveal any damage to the joint and GM Dayton Moore reported that his young hurler will likely miss just one start and avoid the DL.  A collective exhale was done by the Royals after Ventura came out of his Monday start feeling pain in the elbow and forearm which often had led to a Tommy John surgery diagnosis this season.  However no structural issues were found and Ventura should be back on the hill in a week to 10 days according to Moore.

Analysis:  Wow what a bullet dodged.  I am still a bit concerned about the drop in velocity but at least the elbow is sound.  Ventura is a risk the rest of the way due to the fact he will soon be going into uncharted innings territory which means the ERA and WHIP will rise.  As a smallish pitcher, the wear and tear on the season will affect him more than others.  If Ventura comes back and throws a few good games, sell high.
