Cather Humberto Quintero noticed something awry with Duffy's delivery, but Duffy had felt something in his elbow even earlier in his brief outing. “I felt it on the second pitch of the game, a 95-mile-an-hour heater," Duffy told Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star. "It was that extension. It wasn't from the acceleration. We'll have to see what it is.”
