Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Yordano Ventura has come into his own lately, but the Kansas City Royals are choosing to exercise caution by skipping his turn. Instead, they'll look to Liam Hendriks to knock off his former team.

Hendriks makes his Royals debut Wednesday night against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

Ventura was initially scheduled to start but will rest his sore back, which bothered him in his last outing against Texas on Friday night. The rookie went 3-1 with a 2.56 ERA over his last five starts.
