  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Back in action Sunday

Duffy also spent the first half of May on the COVID-19 injured list, and he's 0-for-8 with three strikeouts in four games since his activation.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Leaves early Tuesday

    Duffy was removed from Tuesday's win over the Angels with a facial laceration after colliding with Adolis Garcia during the eighth inning, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Duffy was apparently mostly unaffected from the collision itself, but the ball popped out of his glove and struck him in the face, resulting in the laceration. The 31-year-old appears to have avoided a serious injury and should be considered day-to-day.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Reinstated Saturday

    Duffy (illness) was reinstated from the injured list prior to Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland.

    Jack Mayfield was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move, so Duffy will take over those utility infielder duties. He hit .278 with zero home runs and zero steals in 36 at-bats prior to being placed on the IL.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Beginning rehab assignment

    Duffy (illness) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

    Duffy has been on the COVID-19 injured list since May 1, but he's been cleared to return to game action with the minor-league club. The team hasn't indicated how many rehab games Duffy will require prior to rejoining the major-league club, but he'll presumably reclaim a part-time role once he's cleared for big-league games.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Moves to COVID-19 IL

    The Angels placed Duffy on the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Duffy was initially in line to start at first base Sunday against White Sox southpaw Dallas Keuchel, but the lefty-hitting Jared Walsh was instead a late addition to the lineup after Duffy was scratched. The Angels haven't indicated whether Duffy's placement on the COVID-19 IL was the result of a positive test or due to contact-tracing concerns, but he'll head into isolation until the team gets more clarity on the matter. Jack Mayfield was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake to provide an extra option off the bench while Duffy is on the IL.

  • Angels' Matt Duffy: Slated for platoon role

  • Cubs' Matt Duffy: Drives in two Sunday

    Duffy went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

    Duffy punctuated a strong finish to the season with a two-hit effort in the finale, and he'll now carry a 13-game hitting streak into next year. The end-of-season flourish pushed the 30-year-old's batting average to .287. If Duffy returns to the Cubs in 2022, he'll likely fill a utility infielder role off the bench, though he's shown a consistent ability to get hits when he plays regularly.

    Duffy went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

The versatile infielder is seeing regular playing time and has bumped his season-long batting average up to .278 with the strong run lately. Duffy doesn't offer a ton of pop, but fantasy managers can still find some value from the 30-year-old while he's locked in at the plate.

  • Cubs' Matt Duffy: Homers again Thursday

    Duffy went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

    The Cubs got clobbered 17-8, but Duffy was a bright spot with his second home run in as many days and fifth of the season. The infielder is looking to make a case for increased playing time down the stretch, and with a .310 batting average, four home runs and 10 RBI this month, said case is getting stronger.
