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.

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.

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.
