DR HQ: Royals lose Ventura, Pads to be without Myers for extended time

Yordano Ventura (RHP, KC)
Injury: Nerve irritation and loss of feeling in his pitching hand.
DL date: June 13
Estimated DL time: Pressure on the ulnar nerve in his pitching elbow is causing the pain and loss of feeling in his hand. He’s out indefinitely until more information regarding the nerve issue is revealed. The worst-case scenario is Ventura needs surgery to move the nerve (and release the pressure) though there isn’t any indication it is needed at the moment.
