Royals’ top pitching prospect Ventura promoted to Class AAA Omaha

Right-hander Yordano Ventura, the Royals’ top pitching prospect, is heading to Class AAA Omaha after club officials concluded he has nothing more to prove at Class AA Northwest Arkansas. The promotion came Monday on Ventura’s 22nd birthday and two days after he lowered his ERA to 2.34 by pitching five scoreless innings in a no-decision against San Antonio.
