UPDATE: The Royals will also lose Edinson Volquez for 5 games and Lorenzo Cain for 2, as they both were given a suspension.


Well we all knew it was only a matter of time before the MLB handed down a penalty on the Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura. In back to back starts he was ejected from the game and caused multiple bench clearing scuffles. Ventura will receive a 7 games suspension for the bench clearing brawl that he caused on Thursday night against the White Sox.

In 4 starts this year, Ventura is 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. He has struck out 19 batters in 22 innings.
