Danny Duffy walks five in win vs. Twins Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy picked up a win Wednesday after giving up one earned run on four hits and five walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 3-2 victory over the Twins.

Duffy (6-10) retired six of the seven batters he faced in the first two innings but gave up a solo home run to the other. Despite constantly getting into trouble over the next four innings, he was able to prevent any runs from scoring. Duffy owns a 2.42 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 80:39 K:BB ratio in 104 innings. He's scheduled to face the Diamondbacks Tuesday.

Danny Duffy twirls a gem in a no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy twirled a gem at home on Thursday against the Indians, but the bullpen was unable to maintain a slim lead, as he was unable to factor into the decision. The left-hander permitted two hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven shutout frames.

Over his last two starts covering 12 2/3 innings, Duffy has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 2.47 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over 98 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Wednesday at home against Minnesota.

Danny Duffy posts quality start in loss vs. Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy took a loss Saturday despite giving up just two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out two in his team's 2-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Duffy (5-10) is 1-5 in his last six starts, but he's surrendered no more than two earned runs in five of his outings during that stretch. The lack of offensive support has led him to post a terrible record alongside a 2.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 69:32 K:BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. Duffy is scheduled to take on the Indians Thursday.

Limited strikeouts not hurting Danny Duffy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Throughout his recovery from Tommy John surgery in 2012 and 2013, the one stat that kept Danny Duffy top of mind for Fantasy owners was his strikeout rate. He averaged 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings in six starts before the injury two years ago and returned to average 8.1 in five starts last year.

He's down to 7.1 per nine innings this year, but the tradeoff should be a welcome one for Fantasy owners. It's flown under the radar because he's gone 3-4, but in his last eight starts, Duffy has a 2.19 ERA and 0.99 WHIP. His strikeout rate during that stretch is a more respectable 7.8 per nine innings, but it's inflated by a nine-strikeout effort June 14 at the White Sox.

One possible explanation for the change is increased use of his sinking fastball. Though always a fly-ball pitcher, he has induced more ground balls and weaker contact in general during this hot streak. More notably, he's improved his control, which should limit the damage when he does give up a big fly.

With his stuff, Duffy could eventually get back to striking out a batter per inning, but that's clearly not his focus at this stage of his career. And he'll be better for it in the long run. Even now, he's one of my favorite starting pitchers to add in standard mixed leagues, ranking just behind Jake Odorizzi and just ahead of Jacob deGrom.
