On January 22, 2017 at age 25, Ventura died in a car crash in Juan Adrián, the Dominican Republic. He lost control of his Jeep Wrangler, which flipped over on a curved road. Ventura was thrown out of the vehicle and was presumed dead by the time the authorities arrived. Ventura, who in the Dominican Republic was a member of the Águilas Cibaeñas, died the same day as teammate and Major leaguer, Andy Marte, who was killed in a separate car crash in the Dominican Republic at the age of 33. Ventura had about $20 million outstanding on his Royals contract; how that money was disbursed was dependent on an official toxicology report that was not a matter of public record.

In a game against the Baltimore Orioles on June 7, 2016, Ventura threw several pitches inside to Manny Machado and the two exchanged words. Machado's next at-bat occurred in the fifth inning, with Baltimore leading 5–1. With the first pitch of the at-bat, Ventura hit Machado with a 99-mile-per-hour (159 km/h) fastball. Machado stormed after Ventura, causing a bench-clearing brawl. Both players were ejected. Two days later, Ventura was fined an undisclosed amount and suspended nine games.

He got plenty of support as the Royals won 10–1 over the White Sox.

In April 2015, Ventura was involved in bench-clearing incidents in three consecutive starts. During an April 12 game against the Los Angeles Angels, Ventura stared down Mike Trout after a single up the middle. After Trout scored later in the inning, Ventura again confronted him and the benches cleared. During a game against the Oakland Athletics on April 18, 2015, Ventura was ejected for the first time in his MLB career after intentionally hitting Brett Lawrie with a pitch. On April 22, Ventura was fined an undisclosed amount and was not suspended for any games. The next day, Ventura exchanged words with White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton that Ventura was thought to have instigated as he fielded Eaton's ground ball, which initiated a bench-clearing brawl between the two teams. Five total players, including Ventura, were ejected. On April 25, 2015, Ventura was suspended for seven games. He had the option to appeal but dropped it on April 30, so the suspension would take effect.
