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.

Ned Yost: Billy Butler is our DH if he continues to hit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is still under the miscroscope despite his recent surge. He must keep hitting to remain a starter.

"If Billy keeps hitting, Billy's going to DH," Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star.

Butler played the role of hero in the weekend series against Cleveland with six hits, including two home runs, and five RBI to help his team win three of four. But he took the collar Tuesday night.
