Dwyer to start for Omaha in Triple-A title tilt

KANSAS CITY -- With Yordano Ventura slated to start for the Royals on Tuesday against the Indians, left-hander Chris Dwyer will start for the Omaha the Storm Chasers in Tuesday's Triple-A Championship Game in Allentown, Pa.

Former Royals prospect Jake Odorizzi will get the ball for the Durham Bulls.

The Storm Chasers are coming off their second Pacific Coast League title in three years -- winning three of four in the best-of-five series against Salt Lake. The championship game will air on NBC Sports Network at 6 p.m. CT.

Dwyer was 10-11 with a 3.55 ERA in 29 regular-season games. He pitched two innings last Tuesday in the first game of the PCL championship series -- allowing one run on three hits.
