Fox Sports Kansas City is planning a tribute to Yordano Ventura on Friday.
The network will show condensed versions of three of Yordano Ventura regular-season starts. It’s part of a two-hour special, “Remembering Yordano Ventura,” that begins at 7 p.m. Ventura died Jan. 22 in a car accident in his native Dominican Republic.
The games are: his major-league debut in 2013, his opening-day start in 2015 and his nine-inning complete game on Sept. 19, 2016.
In his big-league debut on Sept. 17, 2013, Ventura faced the Cleveland Indians and allowed one run on five hits in 5 2/3 innings, with three strikeouts and two walks. The Indians won 5-3.
