Royals' Danny Duffy: Posts quality start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (4-5) picked up the win Wednesday after holding the White Sox to two runs on six hits while striking out five over six innings.

Duffy delivered a quality start and did not issue any walks for the first time this season. The 30-year-old held the White Sox hitless until the third inning and scoreless until the sixth, when he surrendered a two-run homer to Ryan Goins. Duffy had exited his last start against Detroit after getting hit in the hand with a ball, but clearly the injury was nothing serious. After his solid outing, the southpaw owns a 4.52 ERA, 1.39 ERA and 69:31 K:BB heading into his next start against the Braves.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Won't miss start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (hand) will make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

He was hit on his throwing hand by a comebacker during Friday's start, but X-rays were negative. Manager Ned Yost simply relayed that Duffy would make his next start, and he lines up to start Wednesday at home against Chicago.

Royals' Danny Duffy: X-rays negative on hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Duffy's injured left hand came back negative after he exited Friday's start against the Tigers after getting hit by a comebacker, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

He is just dealing with a bruised throwing hand. Duffy tried to stay in and promptly gave up a walk and a couple hard-hit balls before getting pulled. He gave up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three in two innings. Consider him questionable for his next start Wednesday against the White Sox.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Delivers quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-5) gave up two runs on five hits and five walks while striking out three through 6.2 innings to take the loss against the Indians on Wednesday.

It was a milestone outing, as Duffy reached the 1,000-inning mark in his major-league career. Even though he struggled with his control, Duffy pitched well enough to get a quality start but was outdueled by Mike Clevinger. The left-hander had a 3-5 record with a 4.28 ERA heading into the All-Star break.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-4) gave up three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out eight over 6.2 innings Friday against the Blue Jays. He took the loss.

This was his third quality start in his last four outings, and the first of those that came on the road. Things could have been worse, as he surrendered a couple home runs, but was fortunate to strand all but one baserunner. Duffy has been pretty serviceable of late, particularly at home, and he will have a solid matchup in his next outing Wednesday against the Indians in Kansas City.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Throws season-high eight innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy allowed three runs on six hits and two walks Saturday against the Twins, striking out four over eight innings.

All three runs off Duffy came on solo homers, with Miguel Sano hitting one in the second inning and Jake Cave and C.J. Cron adding a pair in the eighth. Otherwise, Duffy's outing was a strong one, representing just the first time all season he'd lasted longer than seven innings. He was able to lower his ERA to a respectable (if not exciting) 4.48 and will look to lower it still further Friday against Toronto.

Royals' Danny Duffy: No-decision against Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy didn't factor into the decision against the Mariners on Monday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits over five innings, striking out four and walking three as the Royals eventually won 6-4.

Duffy limited the Mariners to just one earned run through his four innings, but he was tagged for three in the fifth, forcing him to settle for a no-decision as he departed with the Royals down 4-2. The 30-year-old now carries a 4.64 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP and a 46:21 K:BB over 54.1 innings on the season.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy recorded seven strikeouts and allowed two runs on four hits and two walks across seven innings during a no-decision against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Duffy logged a quality start against Detroit by logging a season-best seven innings and seven strikeouts. He left the game with the score knotted at 2-2, but unfortunately, Kansas City's bullpen couldn't get it done. The 30-year-old gave up two free passes in the first inning allow the first run of the game, and he surrendered a second in the fifth through a pair of doubles. The southpaw stayed solid by retiring his last 11 batters and finished the outing with a respectable 99 pitches. Duffy now owns a 4.38 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 42:18 K:BB. He'll look for a win in his next matchup against the Mariners on Monday.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Lasts only 2.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-3) allowed four earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two across 2.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Red Sox.

Duffy got the quick hook Thursday, with much of the damage against him coming in his third and final frame. The big blow came on a two-run homer by Mookie Betts but he also allowed three hits to the next four batters he faced before being pulled. Duffy had put together a string of solid performances -- four of his last outings went for quality starts -- but he's gotten knocked around in consecutive efforts, allowing 10 earned runs across 7.2 innings of work. That's inflated his ratios to a 4.68 WHIP and 1.42 WHIP across 42.1 innings. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for Wednesday at Detroit.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Knocked around vs. Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-2) surrendered six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings in a loss to Texas on Friday.

Duffy cruised through the first five innings of his outing before hitting a wall in the sixth, giving up six runs on four hits. The left-hander hadn't given up more than four runs in a start heading into Friday's appearance, so this looks to be nothing more than a blip on the radar for the 30-year-old. Duffy owns a 4.05 ERA with 33 strikeouts over 40 innings this season.

Royals' Danny Duffy: No-decision against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy gave up four runs (one earned) on five hits and one walk while striking out four through six innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Sunday.

Duffy only allowed one earned run, but the wheels came off a bit in the sixth inning after an error by Adalberto Mondesi. The left-hander went on to give up a single and a three-run home run from Gleyber Torres. The 30-year-old has been consistent, going at least five innings and allowing less than four earned runs in every outing. He has a 3-1 record with a 3.12 ERA through six starts this season. Duffy will make his next trip to the mound Saturday against the Rangers.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy will start Sunday's game against the Yankees, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Duffy was expected to draw the start Saturday, but a postponement Friday night has changed Kansas City's weekend pitching plans. Jakob Junis and Jorge Lopez will start Game 1 and 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, pushing Duffy back to Sunday.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Wins third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (3-1) allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Angels on Sunday.

The 30-year-old has been far from elite, but this was one of his stronger outings of the season, and he's now won three straight starts. Duffy began the season on the injured list because of a shoulder injury, but in five outings, he is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 28.2 innings. While he's had trouble with walks, Duffy owns a 3.04 ERA in the last four contests. The lefty will pitch again as the Royals host the Yankees next Sunday.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Carried to win by offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (2-1) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings while striking out six in an 11-5 victory over the Rangers.

Texas got to the southpaw for all four runs in the third inning, but Kansas City had already spotted him a 9-0 lead by that point. Duffy will take a 3.97 ERA and 18:8 K:BB through 22.2 innings into his next start Sunday, on the road against the Angels.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Cruises to first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (1-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 12-2 rout of the Astros, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over 6.2 innings while striking out five.

The southpaw shut the Houston offense down for five innings before the Astros managed to push a run across, but the game was already well out of reach by then. Duffy has given the Royals back-to-back quality starts, and he'll take a 3.06 ERA and 12:7 K:BB into his next outing Sunday, on the road against the Angels.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Turns in strong outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy allowed one earned run on six hits and a walk while striking out six across six innings Thursday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

Duffy kept the Royals close in a low-scoring game, holding the Rays without an extra-base hit across his six innings of work. He also generated 18 swinging strikes despite his fastball velocity falling about one tick from his season debut. Overall, this start was a step forward for Duffy, though he'll draw a touch matchup pitching at Houston in his next outing, likely to come on Tuesday.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Falls in 2019 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (0-1) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings while striking out one as the Royals dropped a 5-1 decision to the Angels.

The southpaw wasn't particularly sharp after being activated from the IL prior to Friday's start, throwing 51 of 86 pitches for strikes. Duffy is coming off a shaky 2018, so this isn't the most encouraging beginning to his campaign, but his sub-4.00 ERAs the two years before offer at least a little bit of hope that he could be a useful fantasy arm if he can stay healthy. He'll next take the mound Wednesday, at home against the Rays.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Activated for Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Wednesday in advance of his scheduled start Friday against the Angels, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Duffy was cleared for his big-league return earlier in the week after striking out seven in 5.1 scoreless innings in his rehab start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Saturday. The southpaw will slide into a regular rotation spot going forward . Tim Hill was optioned to Triple-A Omaha to free up a spot on the active roster.

Royals' Danny Duffy: Set to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Duffy (shoulder) is scheduled to start against the Angels on Friday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports

As expected, Duffy has been cleared to make his 2019 big-league debut after firing 5.1 scoreless innings in a rehab start for Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Saturday, allowing four hits while striking out seven. The southpaw posted a 4.88 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 across 28 starts for the Royals last season (155 innings).
