TODAY'S STARTING PITCHERS:
With Matt Moore being traded, the Rays decided to move Matt Andriese back into the starting rotation and according to Kevin Cash, he'll be there for the foreseeable future. Andriese has been fantastic in each role the Rays have asked of him and he has earned the opportunity to start again. His last appearance came on the 30th against the Yankees as he pitched two innings, yielding a single run on a homer, while he walked one and struck out one.
Yordano Ventura Scouting Report:
You never know what's going to happen when the Royals young fire-baller, Yodano Ventura, takes the mound as he has the stuff to be brilliant, but a detrimental mindset brings on an explosive atmosphere. He has been pretty solid as of late, with three of his past four outings having lasted at least seven innings with his last start being a shortened complete game as he delivered eight innings against the Rangers, allowing three runs (all via solo homers), giving up a total of four hits, while he walked one and struck out six en route to a loss.
