Royals' Danny Duffy hoping for 200 innings in 2015
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy is hoping to toss 200 innings this season, according to the Kansas City Star

In order to reach that plateau, Duffy revamped his workout routine during the offseason. "He’s in great shape," manager Ned Yost said. "He’s in, by far, the best shape I’ve ever seen him in." Duffy admitted that he's not trying to get huge, but wanted to get "filled out, and have a little more (strength) behind the ball."

Duffy, who loves to run, said he decreased the distance on his workouts, but added more explosiveness. He also bought a bike in order to strengthen his legs. His approach in the weight room also changed. "It was light, but it was a lot of reps," Duffy said. "Back when I was 22, 21, I would just try to max everything out, because I thought that was how you did things. But you need to slowly, but surely, ease into it." Duffy also cut down on eating fast food, which has been a big weakness for him in the past.

The 26-year-old posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings last year.

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy limited by rib issue
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was limited by a rib injury throughout the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.

Duffy suffered a stress fractuce in his ribcage late in the year, which prevented him from throwing more than two or three innings at a time. Duffy was a candidate to start the first game of the ALDS until the injury cropped up. Duffy was excellent down the stretch for Kansas City. He posted a 2.53 ERA over 149 1/3 innings.

Report: Mechanics cost Royals P Danny Duffy playoff starts
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A mechanical breakdown that prevented Royals left-hander Danny Duffy from throwing strikes out of the windup motivated Ned Yost to keep him in the bullpen for the playoffs, according to the Kansas City Star.

Duffy struggled at times in August and September. He was particularly ineffective in his last start of the regular season, giving up four runs on five hits in just two innings against the White Sox.
