Davis is going to get a Hochevar-esque leash, I think. They need him to succeed as a starter and gave up significant pieces in order to obtain him. His performance has been uneven, but the one positive is that his K rate is up from his previous days as a starter (it's sitting at 7.1 K/9, which is respectable).

I think Ventura needs a little more seasoning before he can be an MLB starter (pitch efficiency seems to be a big issue with him), but all other aspects of his game look great.
I agree with this...but Mendoza is what he is...your next recently overachieving Royals pitcher whom everyone seems to think he's something he's not. He's a garbage man...someone you need to stick out there a couple few innings a couple times a week to give the pen needed rest. He's not a starter and should be sent to the pen once Paulino and Duffy get back.
