Yordano Ventura was recently named as the Royals’ Opening Day starter and he had a heck of a tuneup in his latest Cactus League outing last night, throwing seven no-hit innings against the Mariners. Check out the video below:

One of the hardest throwers in the game, the 23-year-old Ventura had a 3.20 ERA and 159/69 K/BB ratio over 183 innings during his first full season in the big leagues last year. With James Shields now in San Diego, the Royals hoping that Ventura can emerge as their ace for the foreseeable future.
