Description: Royals pitcher Danny Duffy, along with Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie, will be available out of the bullpen for Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday.
Insight: With the weather forecast calling for rain, it is a good idea for both teams to have a lot of arms in the bullpen in case of a delay.
 
9/22/2014 10:46:00 PM
Description: Royals pitcher Danny Duffy pitched six shutout innings, allowed six hits, struck out five and walked two to defeat the Indians, 2-0.
Insight: It was Duffy's first start since his one pitch outing against the Yankees on Sept. 6. His return is just in time as Kansas City makes its final push at the wild card and division title. Duffy is 9-11 with a 2.32 ERA in 147 1/3 innings this year.
 
9/14/2014 12:44:00 PM
Description: Royals pitcher Danny Duffy (shoulder) felt no pain during a light bullpen session according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: Duffy remains hopefully to start on Tuesday against the White Sox. In order for that to happen, doctors still need to clear him. Duffy left his last start with shoulder discomfort after just one pitch.
 
Hot9/13/2014 4:40:00 PM
Description: Royals pitcher Danny Duffy (shoulder) will throw a light bullpen session on Sunday and hopes to start on Tuesday according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: An MRI came back negative this week and Thursday Duffy said he was no longer feeling any discomfort. Duffy has been out since Sept. 6 but plans to return on Tuesday against the White Sox.
 
Hot9/8/2014 12:30:00 PM
Description: An MRI taken on Sunday showed no structural damage to Royals starter Danny Duffy's left shoulder.
Insight: Duffy has rotator cuff inflammation according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star. He hopes to miss just one turn in the rotation. Duffy left Saturday's game against the Yankees after just one pitch. He is 8-11 with a 2.42 ERA, 1.08 WHIP in 141 1/3 innings this season.
 
Hot9/6/2014 5:28:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy is dealing with a sore throwing shoulder according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Insight: Duffy left Saturday's game after one pitch due to shoulder discomfort. Duffy will undergo more tests, so more details should be released in the next 24 hours. Overall, not good for the AL Central leading Royals.
 
Hot8/26/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy allowed one runon four hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no decision Tuesday against the Twins.
Insight: Duffy is just 8-11 even though he has a 2.47 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP in 134 2/3 innings this season. His ERA is fourth lowest in the AL.
 
Hot6/19/2014 5:48:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy has allowed five runs on 14 hits with a 23/6 K/BB in 25 2/3 innings this month.
Insight: Duffy (4-6, 2.80 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) allowed two runs on three hits in seven innings Thursday at Detroit. The 25-year-old former top-100 prospect is starting to live up to his potential after being derailed by Tommy John surgery in 2012.
 
Hot6/19/2014 11:46:00 AM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy doesn't have a winning record this season (4-5), but he's pitching very well of late.
Insight: Duffy has posted a 1.45 ERA, 0.857 WHIP and 18 Ks in 18.2 IP in his last three starts, winning two of them. With the Royals on fire, winning 10 straight, Duffy is an excellent option on Thursday.
 
6/14/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy struck out nine batters in seven shutout innings Saturday against the White Sox.
Insight: In eight starts this season, Duffy has gone 3-4 with a 2.96 ERA and a 31/19 K/BB in 45 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old will have a tough matchup at Detroit his next time out.
 
5/17/2014 9:49:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy was perfect for 6 2/3 innings before allowing a single to Adam Jones.
Insight: Duffy finished with seven scoreless innings of two-hit ball with two strikeouts and zero walks. The young left-hander has Tommy John surgery in 2012 and made just five appearances last year, but he's allowed just two runs on six hits in 17 innings since he took over for the injured Bruce Chen in the rotation.
 
3/23/2014 12:52:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy will begin the year in the minors.
Insight: Duffy lost the fifth spot in the rotation to Yordano Ventura. The hard-throwing Duffy's career was been set back by Tommy John surgery, but he returned to post a 1.85 ERA and 22 Ks in 24 1/3 innings last season. He'll be the first pitcher called up if Kansas City needs an injury replacement in the rotation.
 
8/29/2013 10:11:00 AM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy blanked the Twins over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday night to pick up his second win over the season.
Insight: Duffy struck out seven and didn't walk a batter Wednesday. He has given up just six hits and no runs over 12 2/3 innings. With Wade Davis finally moved to the bullpen, the 24-year-old Duffy should have a spot in the rotation going forward. Fantasy owners in deeper leagues should take a flyer on him.
 
8/16/2013 8:21:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy allowed just one hit over six scoreless innings Friday afternoon at Detroit in Game 1 of a doubleheader.
Insight: It was Duffy's first win since May 3, 2012. The young lefty showed promise last year prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, but he's blocked out of the rotation right now.
 
5/24/2013 4:29:00 PM
Description: Royals left-hander Danny Duffy (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star. Duffy had Tommy John surgery last May.
Insight: He'll throw 60 pitches for Double-A Northwest Arkansas Sunday after making six appearances in extended spring training. He'll likely remain on the rehab assignment for the full 30 days. Duffy was drafted in the third round in 2007 and was 2-2 with a 3.90 ERA and a 9.11 K/9 last season before the injury.
 
5/14/2012 7:57:00 PM
Description: Danny Duffy has suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. The Royals have placed Duffy on the disabled list.
Insight: Duffy (2-2, 3.90 ERA in six starts) will likely undergo Tommy John surgery to repair the damage to his elbow. We wouldn't expect to see Duffy in uniform again this season.
 
5/13/2012 6:38:00 PM
Description: Danny Duffy left Sunday's start in the first inning with elbow tightness.
Insight: The lefty starter had to miss a start in April due to the same issue. The hard-throwing Duffy has struck out 27 batters in 27 innings this season, but his high WHIP (1.59) leaves something to be desired. Hopefully this tightness in his elbow is not something more severe, like ligament damage.
 
4/26/2012 10:40:00 AM
Description: Danny Duffy has elbow tightness and will have his next start skipped, according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: The Royals are currently undecided on Friday's starter with Duffy out. The 23-year-old has 20 strikeouts and a 3.63 ERA in 17 1/3 innings but he was roughed up his last outing against Toronto.
 
4/22/2012 6:10:00 PM
Description: Royals starter Danny Duffy was roughed up by Toronto on Sunday. The 23-year-old gave up four runs on five hits with five walks in 4 2/3 innings.
Insight: Duffy had pitched well in his first two starts, striking out 15 in 12 2/3 innings with a 2.13 ERA before Sunday. Duffy's fastball touches 95 mph, so he remains an intriguing young starter.
