RHP Yordano Ventura: Coming to a stadium near you later this summer.

Over his last two starts for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, 21-year-old Yordano Ventura has been nearly untouchable.

With a fastball that easily reaches triple-digits and sits comfortably in the upper-90s, as well as vastly improved secondary offerings, the right-hander has scattered only three hits while recording 10 strikeouts in each outing. You read that correctly: He has fanned 10 batters in back-to-back starts.

With a little over 50 innings of experience at Double-A under his belt, Ventura still needs more time to develop in the high minors. However, the flame-throwing right-hander’s outstanding start seemingly has him poised for a promotion to the major leagues later this season.

Here’s a look at the rest of the week’s hottest and coldest pitchers at every minor league level.
