Yordano Ventura's toxicology report won't be made public

Yordano Ventura's toxicology report from his fatal crash in the Dominican Republic will be released only to his family and attorneys.

The results from the toxicology report on the late Yordano Ventura will not be made public, an official in the Dominican Republic told the Kansas City Star on Thursday.

The Royals pitcher died in a crash Jan. 22 on a mountainous highway northwest of Santo Domingo. The Star reported at the time that officials found no sign of alcohol at the crash site, but that a toxicology report would be completed within 21 days.

Now complete, those report results will be shared only with Ventura's family and attorneys.

“Autopsies are performed by law to any person who has died violently,” a Dominican attorney general's office spokesperson told the Star. "But it (the report) is only given to the public ministry and to relatives.”


This news leaves the Royals in limbo. There is $20.25 million in guaranteed money remaining on the five-year deal the right-hander signed before the 2015 season. But Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported last month the contract contains a provision that nullifies the remainder of the contract "for failure to perform due to injury or death resulting from driving a motorized vehicle while intoxicated."
