Yor­dano Ven­tura is go­ing back to the mi­nors to try to re­gain his form from his strong rookie sea­son. The Roy­als op­tioned Ven­tura to Triple-A Omaha on Tues­day af­ter a string of in­ef­fec­tive out­ings for the open­ing-day pitcher. “A lot of times it’s good for play­ers to take a step back, so they can take three or four steps for­ward,” man­ager Ned Yost said. The 24-year-old Ven­tura, who can run his fast­ball into triple dig­its, is 4-7 with a 5.19 ERA in 14 starts this year. He spent nearly a month on the dis­abled list with in­flam­ma­tion of his ul­nar nerve.
