KANSAS CITY, Mo. Seth Curry Jersey . -- Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura will miss his next start after an MRI exam taken Tuesday on his sore right elbow showed no ligament damage, while top prospect Kyle Zimmer has been shut down after straining a muscle in his back. Ventura, whose 100 mph fastballs have made him a rising star, was removed from Monday nights loss to Houston with discomfort in his elbow. He was diagnosed with a mild valgus extension overload, a condition in which the repetitive stress on the elbow can cause pain in the joint. "We had a pretty good idea exactly what would show up on the MRI and thats exactly what happened," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Hes totally asymptomatic today, which means he doesnt feel anything, but as a precaution well skip him one start." Trainers went out to examine Ventura in the third inning when they noticed a decrease in the velocity on his fastball. But they were confident there was no ligament damage when Ventura said the pain was on the outside of the elbow, rather than on the inside of it. "It happens. It happens to everybody. It happens to infielders, it happens to outfielders. Its just a freak thing," Yost said. "The pain was on the other side of the elbow, and he only felt it on extension on his fastball. He didnt feel it on his breaking ball or his changeup." Still, Ventura said he was concerned about his first elbow injury. "It felt a little unnatural in my arm and I didnt know what it was, but thank God after the treatment I was able to feel better," he said through a translator. "Right now I dont feel any pain, and Im very grateful to God and the trainers because theyre working with me." The plan is for Ventura to rest for the next three days, and then throw two side sessions while skipping his next start. Yost believes he will then be ready to rejoin the rotation. Yost said he was still considering options for his Saturday starter in Toronto. Meanwhile, Zimmer will not play catch for at least six weeks after straining a muscle in his back. The fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Zimmer was already taking a conservative approach to the start of the season because of biceps tendinitis. Zimmer was a longshot to win a job out of spring training, but the Royals were hoping he would pitch well enough in the minors this summer to get a call-up to the big leagues. "Down the road, maybe after the All-Star break if Kyle was throwing good, he might be a guy that we could bring up and help us, and even deep as into September if he was throwing good," Yost said. "Well see how it goes from here." Custom Dallas Mavericks Jerseys . The 19-year-old Swiss centre back will initially have to impress in Uniteds reserve side to earn a spot in the first team.

However, the Habs come in with a streaking offense and could get another emotional lift when longtime captain Saku Koivu is honored following the end of his 18-year career. Montreal returned home last week following a 1-3-0 road trip, but has won the first three of a five-game homestand, scoring 13 goals over that span while allowing just four. The Canadiens are on their longest winning streak since a season-high six-game run from Nov. 5-16, but they lost seven of 10 after that before starting their current homestand. Montreal extended its win streak with Tuesdays 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, with Alex Galchenyuk posting his first career hat trick. Max Pacioretty picked up an assist on each goal as well. It feels great. My linemates made it easy for me. I had a lot of fun out there tonight, Galchenyuk said. We had good chemistry tonight. Brandon Prust added a goal and Carey Price made 25 saves. The Canadiens will try to keep their impressive offensive run going in front of Koivu, who spent the first 13 seasons of his NHL career with Montreal. He spent the bulk of that time as the clubs captain and totaled 191 goals and 450 assists in 792 games with the Habs, a time that included a courageous fight with non-Hodkins lymphoma in 2001-02. Koivu then spent his final five NHL seasons with the Ducks before retiring in September. He ended his career with 832 points in 1,124 games. In an attempt to cool off the Canadiens, the Ducks themselves will be aiming to rebound after hhaving a seven-game win streak halted with a 6-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, who scored four third-period goals. Josh McRoberts Jersey. Sami Vatanen and Ryan Kesler scored for the Ducks. I dont think we deserved to lose by that much, said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano. I thought we had most of the play. We gave them easy goals at the end of the game, but we held most of the play. Frederik Andersen made his 19th straight start and allowed four goals on 20 shots before being pulled in the third period. Ilya Bryzgalov turned aside 5- of-7 shots in relief, making his first appearance of the season and beginning his second tenure with the club. It is unknown if Andersen will continue his streak of starts with a first- career appearance versus the Canadiens tonight or if Bryzgalov will make his first start of the campaign. Bryzgalov is 3-3-1 with a 3.15 goals against average and .876 save percentage in seven career meetings with the Habs. Bryzgalov: 3-3-1 with a 3.15 GAA and .876 save in seven vs Habs Price is 1-2-1 in five career games versus the Ducks, with four starts, posting a 3.02 GAA and .899 save percentage. Anaheim plays the fourth of a five-game road trip that ends on Friday in Ottawa and wont have forward Kyle Palmieri for the rest of the trip because of a shoulder injury suffered versus the Leafs. The Ducks recalled young forward Emerson Etem, a 2010 first round pick, from the minors and he skated with Kesler and Matt Beleskey at practice. Etem has two goals and four points in 21 games with Anaheim this season. Anaheim lost both of its games versus Montreal last season, with a setback on Oct. 24, 2013 snapping a three-game win streak at Bell Centre.
