FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YODANO VENTURA HEADED FOR MRI ON ELBOW

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura is headed for an MRI on his pitching elbow after he was forced out of Monday's game with elbow soreness.  Ventura had been rocked all game in giving up five runs in just 2.2 innings and his fastball touched only 91 mph which was a major red flag for the team.  A trip to see Dr. James Andrew is likely if the MRI comes back badly.

Analysis:  Here we go again.  I just got done mentioning a few weeks ago about how Ventura is scary as a young hard-thrower in this era of the Tommy John procedure.  In particular, young pitchers like Ventura, Matt Harvey, and Jose Fernandez all seem to eventually go under the knife for some reason or another.  We are not saying this is what Ventura has but it is a major issue when his fastball is lagging like that all of a sudden.  Prepare for some ugly news tomorrow.
